A BONSPIEL has been held in memory of a highly-respected member of the curling community.

Sandra MacIver was widely-known and highly respected in the curling community throughout the north of Scotland and her sudden passing in the summer of 2022, after battling cancer, came as a shock to her friends and family.

She was the energy behind many curling initiatives and she worked tirelessly to promote the sport across schools and through a local youth development group.

Her enthusiasm, knowledge and dedication to the sport paved the way for many juniors to experience and enjoy the game as much as she did.

By way of recognition for all that she did, and what she meant to her friends in curling, Moray Firth Ladies Curling Club put up a trophy and created the Sandra Maciver Memorial Bonspiel in her memory.

Curlers from various clubs in Moray and the Highlands took part in what was a closely-fought competition.

A team skipped by Linda Thomson were the winners in the High Road, while a team skipped by Morag Cumming were the winners in the Low Road.

Sandra’s brother Cameron MacIver joined those who took part at a lunch after the bonspiel and presented the winners with their trophy.
