A playgroup for vision-impaired children in Liverpool is one step closer thanks to Mounties’ annual Charity Golf Day on Friday.

The club is track to donate $50,000 from the event at Liverpool Golf Club to the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children to help establish a playgroup called Liv’s Place for children up to age 5 with vision impairment.
