THE Ladies Section at Gourock Golf Club pitched in to help needy youngsters.

John McGovern, trustee of Children in Poverty Inverclyde, was recently presented with a cheque for £100 raised at social events and by holding raffles.

Anne F Johnstone, ladies charities convenor at the golf club, said: "We were happy to donate to such a worthy cause where volunteers work to assist children and families facing daily challenges in our local community.

"Many thanks to all our members for kindness and support."
