COWIE-BASED wood panel manufacturer Norbord has donated £200 to support a golfer’s campaign to raise money for Leukaemia Research.

Alison Davidson, who has previously represented Scotland and the UK in international amateur golfing competitions, is raising money for the good cause after her cousin passed away from the disease back in March.

She has so far raised over £5,000 in her fundraising efforts and will undertake a marathon round of golf later this month, playing a 100 holes in a single day alongside family members and friends, in the hope of raising more.

Alison, who is also a practice manager at Physiofocus – a partner physiotherapy service with Norbord – was delighted to hear of the company’s support for her fundraising ambitions.

She said: “I had previously mentioned my fundraising goals in passing to one of my friends on the Norbord team. However I didn’t expect them to then provide such a generous amount of support – it’s an amazing contribution. I’d like to thank Norbord, as well as everyone else who has helped me raise these vital funds to help fight Leukaemia.”

Nick Fedo, general manager at the Norbord plant in Cowie, said: “We are always looking for opportunities to support good local causes with our Good Cause Fund. It’s a real honour for us to be involved.

“We wish Alison the very best with her upcoming golf-themed fundraiser and we urge everyone to join us in supporting her.”
