GOLF DAY SPONSORED BY WADHAM & ISHERWOOD FOR PHYLLIS TUCKWELL RAISES OVER £10,000

POSTED IN General

The sun shone on 6th June 2013 as 20 teams took part in the Phyllis Tuckwell Golf Day to raise funds for their Hospice, the day being sponsored by Wadham & Isherwood Farnham.  The home team of Wadham & Isherwood came a respectable third with 88 points, the day being won on count back with 90 points.

Hindhead Golf Course was in exceptional condition and the greens, which were running true and fast, caused many players difficulties.  At the lunch that followed Ruth Scammell, the event coordinator from Phyllis Tuckwell, reminded the players of the valuable services that the Hospice provide and all in attendance were amazed at the revelation that it costs an unbelievable £15,500 per day to run, most of which has to be raised privately.  Ruth thanked all the participants for their support and also pointed out that in the near future they will be extending their home service which will be a further call on funding.

Although the final figure is not yet known it has been confirmed that over £10,000 was raised with a major contributor being the £10.00 draw for a voucher generously donated by Lamkin Golf of Bentley. 

It is intended that the event will be repeated in 2014 and as this years event was a sell out early reservation is advised through either Geoff Reeve, Wadham & Isherwood geoff@wandi.co.uk or Ruth Scammell, Phyllis Tuckwell ruth.scammell@pth.org.uk
