‘Tee-rrific’ success for golf club charity day

A CHARITY day, held by Orchardleigh Golf Club in aid of Dorothy House in August, raised £3,037.

“Despite the weather trying to dampen things, 132 players enjoyed a great day of golf with complimentary beer and soft drinks at the halfway house donated by golf club owner, Chris Vincent,” says a spokesperson for the club.

“Men members played for the H & B Cup whilst ladies and visitors also had their own competitions.

“Organiser Jim Worsley had overwhelming support from members with donations for a raffle and sponsorship from Coors Brewery, golf club reps and a huge donation from Mindset Training. A par 3 competition was also held at Cumberwell Golf Club. Jim had great help and support on the day with starter Pete Dicken bringing a colourful welcome on the 1st tee and his wife Sue booking everyone in.

“Mike Passingham manned the 10th tee where he coerced everyone into entering “hit the green” competition for an additional donation. We also had volunteers from Dorothy House who sold the raffle tickets and manned the halfway house to make sure everyone had their drink. Thanks to everyone and Jim’s hard work the final total raised was an amazing £3,037. Jim will be presenting a cheque to Dorothy House at the opening of their Firefly Woods on 14th September.”
