Macmillan Charity Golf Day 2014

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

The Annual Rogers and Norton Charity Golf Day was held at Bawburgh on the 12th September 2014.  We have now finally managed to collect in all the monies due and I am delighted to report that the amount raised from this, the 16th year of supporting Macmillan, amounted to a record amount of £9,075.00.  The money was handed over to Shaun Campbell, the Area Fundraising Manager for the Macmillan Cancer Support. The cash was raised from entry fees on the day from 120 golfers together with a raffle and an auction of selected items plus many rounds of golf donated from various clubs around the country.  In addition we received a £4£ donation from Barclays Bank amounting to £2,000.00.

We are extremely grateful to all those individuals and Companies who supported the event in so many different ways to make it such a success and we are already planning for our 2015 Golf Day to see if the record can be bettered this year.  The money will be used to fight this dreadful disease that affects so many of us.
