The facility hosted the first Ladies’ Captain’s Day at the end of June, organised by Intandem volunteer Deborah Macrea who has been a mentor for the past five years.

A total of 32 people gathered at the golf club for a buffet, lots of chat and some saxophone music from Douglas Leslie.

Lead practitioner of the Intandem project Sarah Sproul spoke at the prize giving, detailing how mentoring can benefit children and young people in Inverness who require support.

Money was raised through donations, a hamper raffle and tombola, and will be used for activities for the children during their school holidays.

Sproul commented: “Thanks to everyone for their support, and we hope to run this event again next year.

“Intandem is in need of more mentors for families in the Inverness area, as well as Alness, Tain and Invergordon.

“This is a rewarding role which supports the community as a role model, which is important.

“I have a waiting list and urgently need support from the public to support a young person for a year, with training given and potential to help with a career if they have an interest in working with the third sector.”
