19th Annual Charity Golf Day: 20 May 2016
In association with the Mayor of Truro, this year's charities were Emmaus Cornwall (chosen by the Mayor) and CHICKS (respite holidays for disadvantaged children). As usual there were many prizes to play for, a "superdraw", and a tombola.
Another great success!
37 teams of four took part in this event, the most successful of our Golf Days so far, raising £5,500 in all.
Cheques for £1,500 each were presented to Cllr Lorrie Eathorne-Gibbins (Mayor of Truro 2015-2016) for her charity ( Emmaus Cornwall), and to Mick Ryan of CHICKS (Country Holidays for Inner City Kids). The balance will be held in the Rotary Club's Trust Fund.
Ocean BMW Falmouth were the main sponsor once again, with the Ocean BMW trophy being presented to the winning team from Scott Burridge Commercial with a score of 90 Stableford points (picture below).
Exceptionally generous financial help also came from Barclays Bank plc, who match-funded the proceeds of the tombola and "super draw", each of which raised £500.
The Club is
most grateful not only to the principal sponsors but also to all the
companies, other supporters, and Club members, who sponsored holes,
donated prizes, sold raffle tickets, and generally helped to produce
such an outstanding result.
