Aberdein Considine is joining forces with 1999 Open Champion Paul Lawrie to help introduce more young people to golf.
The firm is delighted to announce a new support agreement with The Paul Lawrie Foundation, which was established following Paul’s memorable victory at Carnoustie.
The foundation directly oversees more than fifty events for juniors in various age-group categories (Under 10s to Under 18s) in the North-East & Highland regions of Scotland.
At its heart is the desire to introduce more children and young people to the game and to help them enjoy their experiences.
The programme has grown to include a small stable of talented young playing professionals, making their way on the various professional golf tours of Europe.
As well as financial support to assist with travelling, equipment and tournament costs, each has Paul’s email and contact number and can tap in to Paul’s vast experience whenever they feel they need advice or guidance.
Speaking about the new relationship between his Foundation and Aberdein Considine, Paul said: “It’s really good news for the Foundation. I’m very grateful to the firm for their backing and understanding of our vision.
“It’s important to Marian (Paul's wife) and I to have the support of companies and organisations within our community who want to see more opportunities for the children in the area.
"Their support will help us to get more kids participating in and enjoying this great game.”
Peter Mutch, Corporate Service Director at Aberdein Considine said: “At Aberdein Considine, we know that being part of a community means much more than just having an office on a high street.
“We work with community groups and charities across Scotland on various projects and initiatives that make a difference to people's lives.
“We are delighted to support The Paul Lawrie Foundation and its work with young people across the north-east of Scotland.”
Aberdein Considine – which now has 19 offices throughout Scotland and the north of England – has already committed tens of thousands pounds to good causes across the country.
It is currently working with the TechFest charity to pioneer a series of special 'Maths into Finance' sessions across Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth.
The firm is also an official sponsor of the Aberdeen Football Club Community Trust. Together with Aberdeen City Council, the Trust supports the schools league across Aberdeen. More than 700 local children take will part in the weekly sessions.
Aberdein Considine is Scotland’s largest estate and leasing agent with offices also in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and Perth. The firm also is a trusted adviser to thousands of private and commercial clients, offering a comprehensive blend of services to support all of their needs across the property, legal and financial sectors.
