For the 2015 Open championship Daily Business has teamed up with The Seafood Restaurant in St Andrews to raise funds for Scottish charity The Polar Academy. Guests will be treated to food and drink while enjoying one of the world’s great sporting occasions – and raising funds for this important charity.

The Polar Academy works with young people to develop them into peer group role models for their communities. It aims to create a new generation of peer group role models for young people in difficult circumstances through expedition to the Artic.

It is the brainchild of, and is run and managed by, Craig Mathieson, an accomplished and respected explorer, who led the first dedicated Scottish expedition to the South Pole and many other expeditions to the Arctic. In 2013 he was awarded the title of “Explorer in Residence”, by the Royal Scottish Geographical Society. Together with his team of professionals from the SportsScotland Glenmore Lodge, the National Outdoor Training Centre, they make up the training and expeditions team.

The maiden expedition from St Aidan’s and Coltness High School Wishaw set foot onto the Arctic Ice during the Easter break to carry out the Polar Academy’s Scientific and Exploration mission.

Seafood RestaurantTo raise funds, TCR Events and The Seafood Restaurant are creating a superb food and wine experience for approximately 60 guests each day (Thursday to Sunday). Every place taken will make a difference not only to the lives of individual expedition participants of the future, but their community.

The Open Experience at The Seafood Restaurant includes breakfast, a three course lunch, complimentary newspapers, wifi, and all drinks, including Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve Champagne and beers from the St Andrews Brewery.

Operating from 16 to 19 July, prices from £179. For more details please visit http://www.theseafoodrestaurant.com/category/news/ or email ben@tcrevents.co.uk
