Charity Day – 2018

The annual Charity Day was held on 1st September, with glorious weather and a great turnout, which included guests from our good friends at Constantine and Stithians.

An excellent barbecue was managed by the Furr-Ward catering team, with accompaniments from several kind donors, whilst the after-play cream tea filled in the gaps!

20 pairs took part and played three, 1-hour sessions each, with the overall winners being the ‘surprise’ pairing of Kevin and Frank. Their differential was an impressive +29. Runners up were David Jenkin and Margaret Weatherhead, who saw off some stiff opposition. It was also nice to see Constantine teams win a couple of runner-up prizes.  A nice gesture was that all winners put their prizes back into the charity fund.

From a combination of entry fees, catering, prize returns and Margaret Calthorpe’s successful raffle, an impressive £300 was raised for Mylor Sailability, the local charity that gives sailing opportunity to the disabled.
