£6,000 -  Raised for MNDA at Bodmin Golf Event.

The Rotary Club of Bodmin held its 18th annual Charity Golf day, in support of the Cornwall Branch of MNDA, at Lanhydrock Hotel and Golf Course on Friday 3rd May, which raised in excess of £6,000 for Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

The golf day, is hailed as the biggest charity golf day in Cornwall, in which forty teams of four players competed in a ‘Texas Scramble’. Many prizes were available to be won, including a car for a 'hole in one' on the 15th hole.

Many businesses throughout Cornwall generously sponsored and donated. The local branch of the MND Association held a bumper raffle. The main sponsors were West End Motors of Bodmin and Barclays Bank.

Bodmin Rotary Past President, Colin Marshall, in his speech before the prize giving, thanked Graham and Claire Bond, the owners of Lanhydrock Golf Club for the use of the facilities and their personal support. Also, gave thanks to everyone who took part or were involved in the event. 

Finally special thanks to Cllr. Sara Kinsman, the Mayor of Bodmin, for the professional way she carried out the competition ‘Tee-Off’ and for carrying out the prize presentations in the evening.
