AOGA were delighted to donate cheques to two Children's Charities following the 27th Annual Golf Tournament held at Gleneagles in June 2005.

A cheque for £20,000 was donated to Hazlewood School in Aberdeen. The money has been used to fund a play park facility at the school including wheelchair swings and a wheelchair roundabout.

Mrs Jill Barry, Acting Head Teacher at the school said: " We are very excited about this new development. It will enable all pupils, regardless of physical ability, to use the facility. Wheelchair users will have the opportunity to climb as high as their friends and share all the thrills of the play park".

The second cheque for £10,000 was donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (UK), which is one of the main charities supported by the Aberdeen Oil Industry.
