A CHARITY golf day organised by The Rotary Club of North Worcestershire has raised £8,000 for various charities.
The two main causes to benefit were Prostate Cancer Awareness and the Worcestershire Special Olympics, an organisation of local parents, relatives and volunteers who run sports training and competitions for those with learning difficulties.
More than 60 golfers took part in the day which was sponsored by a large number of local companies.
Club president Dave Foster presented prizes to Jonathan Thompson and Alistair Booth, the team with the highest Stableford score on the day.
Many firms also donated prizes for a raffle and auction held in conjunction with the after golf day dinner.
Bromsgrove MP Sajid Javid, who attended and met players and the sponsors, said he was impressed by the club’s plans raise funds for charities, including several in Bromsgrove.
“This was an excellent example of Rotary’s well-known work to help both surrounding communities and international disasters.”
The North Worcestershire Rotary Club has 34 members and meets every Tuesday at Droitwich Golf Club.
Anyone wanting to find out more about the club or joining should call Dave on 01527 833522.
