Captain's Charity Day at Pryors Hayes Golf Club
At the weekend over one hundred Pryors Hayes members turned out to compete in the Captains Charity Day event. In addition to a four ball better ball golf completion, there was a raffle and a charity auction.
The club captain, Dave Tweddle, said "I was absolutely delighted with the tremendous response from members and £1,520 has been raised for my chosen charity, Medecins Sans Frontieres/ Doctors without Borders" Dave is now planning a Captain's Charity Night on 25th July to further swell the fund. Comprising a Hog Roast, Magician, and Disco, Dave, "encouraged members to come along with their friends for a fun evening"
Some members are going well beyond the club and the golf course in order to collect money for Dave's chosen cause. On the 31st August four members are doing the Manchester 100 mile bike ride and on 2nd November, Derek Turner will be running the New York Marathon for Medecins Sans Frontieres.
