Members of Canterbury Golf Club recently visited our day centre to present a cheque to the amazing value of £2136.15 (photo shows Jonathan Webb presenting the cheque to Catching Lives Chair of Trustees James Duff). The money has been raised through a variety of interesting events and methods, such as evenings of indoor bowls, a bat and trap barbecue night, quizzes, a wine-tasting and a race night.
A bunker at the 18th hole was also nominated as the Captain’s Charity bunker. Any players whose ball found its way into the bunker were invited to pay £1 into the charity bottle!
They also ran a golf day for Kent cricket legends, had a captain’s weekend that centred on two golf tournaments, and held the traditional Captains’ Ball.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Neil Webber, who made the initial decision to raise money for Catching Lives during his time as the Canterbury Golf Club Captain, to all who those who were involved in organising these events and of course to all who took part and donated money.
