A charity golf day will be hosted in the Highlands for veterans’ families.
Highlander John Arrowsmith has organised the golf day to raise funds for Legacy.

The golf day will be played on July 15 at the Gibraltar Golf Course.
The day will have an 8.30am shotgun start. Participants have been asked to arrive at 8am.
Prizes will be awarded for all nearest to the pins.
The prizes will include, two entries to the Governors Trophy, which will be played at Royal Sydney Golf Course in Rose Bay.
Registration for the event will cost $45 and the full amount will be donated to Legacy.
However, participants must have a registered Golflink number to enter.
Golf carts can also be hired on the day.
Arrowsmith is 66 years old and has been involved with Legacy since he was 12.

Arrowsmith said he decided to organise the event to give back to the organisation that helped his family so much.
The Gibraltar Country Club said they were proud to support the event.
“Gibraltar is proud to support the important charitable work done by Legacy.
“We thank all local businesses and individuals for their support.
“The day is designed to be enjoyable with some very impressive prizes and we hope to run the event annually.”
