ChildLine Aberdeen, Scotland Golf Open Tournament
The 2007 annual ChildLine Aberdeen Golf Open Tournament will take place at Newburgh-on-the-Ythan Golf Course on Friday 7 September 2007 with a shotgun start of 11 am. The event raises funds for ChildLine Scotland North and North East and the Aberdeen counselling centre. Teams of four are invited to take part. At 9:30 am bacon rolls will be provided for the golfers and after the Child Line Aberdeen Golf Open Tournament there will be a two course meal with coffee followed by prize giving, a draw and charity auction.
ChildLine Scotland is a free Scottish helpline for children and young people in danger or distress. It provides a telephone counselling service for any child with any problem. Every day around 725 children and young people call ChildLine Scotland but currently lack of funds means that only around 396 are able to get through to their counsellors for comfort, advice and protection. They still have a long way to go before they can answer every caller at their first attempt, but they know that their ever growing team of trained counsellors in Aberdeen are making a considerable difference.
