Golfers putt in a great effort for Mayor's charity
29 April 2014
Keen golfers in the borough braved the April showers when they teed off for a good cause at the Downshire Golf Complex on Friday, April 25.
The Mayor of Bracknell Forest, Cllr Mrs Jan Angell, is delighted the annual charity golf day event has swelled the coffers of Thames Hospice by £1,700, her nominated charity for her year in office.
As always the competition was a sell-out. The teams of players tucked into bacon rolls and coffee on arrival, received a goodie bag, had the use of the driving range for some pre-match practice, played 18 holes of golf, then enjoyed a two-course meal, prize giving and a charity raffle in the club house.
The winning team was the White Lion (a pub in Aldershot); second was Parkers; and in third place were PATS; all three teams are regular attendees at the event.
Cllr Mrs Angell said : "Congratulations to the winners and to everyone who took part.
"I'm really pleased this event was such a success and raised so much money. Thanks also to the brilliant team at Downshire Golf Complex for organising it.
"Downshire is a superb course and everyone who plays there at the charity days always has a fantastic time in aid of a very deserving cause."
