Our annual charity golf day was played last week at Matfen Hall Golf Club. This is one of our flagship fundraising events and this year, we raised an amazing £3,250 which will fund complementary therapies for our residents at Charlotte Straker House.

On Thursday, we had 17 teams battling out for first prize, and enjoying a full afternoon’s golf in the sunshine plus three course meal at the Keepers Lodge at Matfen Hall Golf Club.

First prize goes to the four golfers from JA Stobo & Son Greengrocers, who played a brilliant round.
2nd prize went to the second team from Joyce Construction and third prize to the Imperator Group. Well done to everyone!

Other notable prize winners were:
Nearest the Pin
• 5th hole – Stephen Riley
• 8th hole – Alastair Gibson
• 10th hole – Richard Walker
• 17th hole – Dave Soulsby
Longest Drive
