GOLF CLUB RAISES £12,200 FOR ST ANN’S HOSPICE
Bramall Park Golf Club (BPGC) has raised an impressive £12,200 for St Ann’s Hospice, taking the amount donated over its long-term association to over £160,000.
The 2017 Charity Golf event was led by club member Jan Cowan who together with Club staff and an enthusiastic group of volunteers ran a successful day with over 180 golfers taking part from around the area.
With prize money in excess of £1,000 for first to third prizes and a raft of outstanding raffle prizes and auction items the event attracted more golfers, guests and partners than before, helping to boost the fund-raising efforts.
There were spot prizes for nearest the pins and straightest drive and the Pro Challenge hole was held on the scenic 15th par three hole, where BPGC Professional Craig Daggitt gave players the chance to double their money if they landed their ball on the green.
There was even recognition for a best dressed 4 ball team.
Williams BMW sponsored the Hole-in-One competition with a Mini car available for one lucky player. One lady hit the pin, but the ball unfortunately didn’t drop in the hole for her.
A fantastic range of raffle prizes with tickets sold in advance and a lively auction hosted by Davenport’s Golf Club’s Tony Stevens all helped the giving.
BPGC Secretary John Mould struck lucky winning the top raffle prize of a diamond necklace valued at £2,000, kindly donated by Slack & Andrews Manufacturing Jewellers.
Jan Cowan, together with the 2017 Captain Roger Souter and Lady Captain Francesca Swarbrick, presented Rosemary Trunkfield, an ambassador for St Ann's Hospice with the cheque.
