Golf day in aid of children's charity

GOLFERS raised more than £700 for Camp Mohawk.

GOLFERS raised more than £700 for Camp Mohawk.

About 40 players took part in the annual golf day at Badgemore Park Golf Club in Henley, which was followed by a raffle and presentation of decorated china plates to the winners.

There were 11 teams of three or four players from local businesses and supporters of the charity and each played Texas scramble.

The event is held every year to raise funds for the day centre for children with learning disabilities in Wargrave and usually takes place at Hennerton Golf Club in the village.

This year’s contest was won by a team led by John Dingle while David Wallace was closest to the pin and Gareth O’Donovan won the longest drive competition. Chris Stillman, chairman of the centre’s trustees, played in the Mohawk team with site manager Matthew Wood and his wife Kate, who works at the centre.

Mr Stillman said: “Everyone was in good spirits, although it would have been better if the weather forecast had been more accurate as we got caught in a couple of showers.

“The money will be going into the coffers for general costs and projects including our new swimming pool, which we hope to have built in the next year or so.”
