Following a successful charity partnership in 2013/14 with CLIC Sargent, Tracy Park golf captains took over the reins on Saturday, with a drive-in a followed by a well-fought bowmaker competition on the Crown course.
Before the drive-in, last year’s club captain, Andre Britton, handed over a cheque to CLIC Sargent, his chosen charity for an amazing £3,117.70. The men’s and ladies sections raised the money throughout 2013 thanks to a number of events and raffles, the last being Britton’s captain’s dinner.
Kiren Fernandes, Area Fundraising Manager at CLIC Sargent said, “This is an absolutely amazing amount of money to raise. I would like to thank everyone involved, especially Andre for choosing CLIC Sargent as the club’s charity of the year."
Retiring Club captain, Andre took the time to pass a special thank you to last year’s lady captain, Lorna Learny, and her colleagues for helping to raise such a large sum of money.
Despite the recent bad weather, there was still a good turn out for the drive-in, with 18 teams entering the competition on a wet and windy day and saturated course.
