Golfers young and not-so-young gathered for a very competitive round, taking in the chance to 'Beat The Pro' on the way. Then, golfing over, back at the clubhouse a tasty barbecue was on offer on a scale even the largest of stomachs struggled to contend with. Whilst the food was washed down with the various offerings from the clubhouse bar a short speech was made by our very own Becky outlining the work of Lennox and the good that will be done with all the money raised.
Next up came the chance for the golfers to win some prizes in a bizarre indoor putting competition using a raised putting green and a spherical putter. Numbers picked at random selected the competitors from the room and with each missed putt the prize stash grew – gloves, tees, balls and hats piled up before, after a handful of attempts, the first successful winner claimed the lot.
Day turned into evening as the auction began with bidders generously digging deep to battle for a huge array of prizes ranging from whisky and chocolate to a gas barbecue and some truly fantastic autographed sporting memorabilia. The atmosphere was competitive as hands were raised and bidders outbid, all the while raising money for a great cause.
We would like to send our thanks to David, Kim and everyone at Burstead Golf Club for their continued support, and for arranging such a fantastic day!
