I started playing golf at the age of 9 at Aboyne where our
family spent three months of the summer holidays. I soon got
the "golfing bug" and began playing in Scottish Girls tournaments.
As a "cack-handed" golfer, I represented Scotland in the Junior Home
Internationals in 1970 and 1971. I was persuaded to change to a more
orthodox method and did so with the help of Jock Lawson, the Professional at Murcar Golf
Club. His enthusiasm soon rubbed off and I progressed to senior

In my spare time, I enjoy hill walking ("bagging" all the Munros by
2004) and cycling. I have recently concentrated all my efforts on
fund-raising for under-privileged children at an orphanage in
Chennai (formerly Madras), India following a visit in 2006.
I first visited Chennai, India in 2006 to do voluntary work. After my initial visit to the St. Joseph Social Service Centre I set up a project to raise funds to improve the health, welfare and education of the underprivileged children of the St. Joseph Centre and those of the poor neighbourhood area. I now concentrate my efforts on fund-raising for the Centre in Chennai, India. The St. Joseph S. S. Centre Project is run under the umbrella of the Little Drops Charity Trust.
