A MEMORIAL event that was set up after the death of a Fife Sports and Leisure Trust (FSLT) employee has now raised £500 in honour of a Cardenden woman. 

A charity golf tournament has been running since Stephen Donnelly, who also volunteered for Disability Fife, died in 2015 after a battle with stomach cancer. 

Since then, his colleagues have raised thousands of pounds for local good causes through the annual event, with the proceeds this year helping to raise awareness and treatment for those suffering from a condition that recently claimed the life of Angela Borthwick, from Cardenden, at the age of just 50. 

Central Fife Times:

She suffered from lung vasculitis for years and this condition did not help in the lead up to her death. 

Therefore, it was decided that the money would be donated to the Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation, based in East Kilbride.

Angela's husband, Michael Borthwick and friend, Gordon Hindley, presented foundation representatives Eunice and Bill Chalmers with a cheque for the charity. 

Michael added that a further £400 that was collected at his late wife's funeral will also be going to the foundation.

Michael, their son Kayden and Angela's extended family are very grateful for the donations and support they have received from everyone.
