25th Charity Golf Tournament 2024



Each year in the past Richmond Rotary Club has used a variety of activities to raise money for charities. One of the most successful has been a golf competition at Richmond Golf Club.

Once again, this year we were delighted to be able to hold the event. 

A total of 21 teams participated including 4 from Rotary Clubs and 10 private teams. The weather was perfect for the event and the day was sponsored by local Richmond and national companies.

The First Team prize was won by Middleton Tryers team with 83 points, with Lightfoot Jewellers second and D J Olney team third.. The Sherwood Cup for the best Rotary Team went to Stockton Rotary who also won the Walter Hepworth Memorial Trophy.

Richmond Rotarian Colin Chitty, one of the event organisers, said after the event: 

‘It was great that we were able to organise the Golf Day again this year and I am grateful to all my Rotary colleagues and the many sponsors of the event.  Without the continuing support of participants the event would not be possible, and it is good that such an enjoyable day ultimately benefits so many people. 

Funds were raised from participants through entry fees, a tombola and refreshments provided by Rotary ladies.

We remain especially grateful to Richmond Golf Club for their continuing support for our Rotary event’.

Richmond Rotary President David Stewart commented:

‘Thanks to the hard work of everyone involved we were able to raise about £2,500.

This will support some really good causes including Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Yorkshire Cancer Research, the Storehouse Foodbank and Garget Walker House in Richmond.

We hope that next year we shall be able to repeat what was a hugely successful day.’

Thank you all for your support in raising funds for our chosen charities which include:

  • Yorkshire Air Ambulance 
  • Yorkshire Cancer Research
  • The StoreHouse Foodbank for Richmond
  • Garget Walker House dementia support Richmond
