Macmillan receives our cheque

Parley Golf Centre handed over a cheque for £1,101 to Macmillan Caring Locally after its charity day.

The money will go towards Macmillan’s ‘Brick by Brick’ appeal which aims to raise £9m for a new palliative care unit at Christchurch Hospital.

Barry Wilson from the charity received the cheque from the club’s ladies captain Gill Ball.

The golfers played a three-team Texas Scramble on the course that last year received £250,000 of investment.

A cake stall on the 9th hole kept the energy levels up as the 13 teams competed for the title.

Gill said: “To raise money we had a second hand book stall, a plant stall and a grand raffle.

“The prizes were great and included a ‘date night for two’ at The Horns Inn, with a chauffeur-driven Tesla S, courtesy of Presla – Electric Chauffeurs.

“The Kier Group donated some John Lewis vouchers, Jimmy’s Iced Coffee supplied drinks and B&Q donated some plants.

“Our members are always very generous when it comes to supporting charities and Macmillan Caring Locally does amazing work.”

The winning team was Peter McIntosh, Colin Spooner and Eddie Lippmann.
