The Battle of the Celts: March golfers don kilts for charity contest

TWO proud Scotsmen donned their kilts for a round as members of March Golf Club contested ‘The Battle of the Celts’.

Seniors’ captain Charlie Dickson and vice-captain Alister Hopkins led teams out onto the course for the sponsored Celtic clash to raise money for Papworth Hospital.

Mr Hopkins - who was unable to compete due to injury - cheered his 12-man team on throughout the 18 holes but it was Mr Dickson’s team that eventually triumphed, winning 4&2.

The event was part of a series of fundraising efforts by March Golf Club, with the annual Papworth Hospital Cup and the end of year celebrations also held to support the charity.

Mr Dickson, who also raised more than �300 by collecting in supermarkets while sporting his kilt, said: “I won the actual game and my team also won. It was the Battle of the Celts and not only did I win the battle, but the war as well!

“It was a very good day and we had a lot of fun. I would like to thank all those who sponsored us and the stores that let me collect money.”
