After the success of last year’s Marie Curie charity golf day, the Landlords Colin and Mel at the Saracen’s Head pub in Henley decided that they would organise another one this year which saw 25 golfers enjoy a round of golf at Henley Golf Club last Friday in the sunshine.
Regulars of the pub were split into teams for a Stableford four ball team competition which was organised by Nathan Hall. As well as part of the entry fee going to the charity, golfers bid to have Mel, Aiofe Hall and Alexander Davies be their caddie for the day and they were also the judges for issuing fines for bad language or being naughty during the day. Landlord Colin said, “I wanted Mel to be my caddie but I just kept being outbid!” Aiofe said, “I love giving out fines to the guys!”
Regular Steve Maunder who does a lot of things for charity sponsored the drinks which were sold on the day and there was a raffle with prizes donated by regulars and local businesses.
The day raised £1,100 for Marie Curie and the winning Team were Team 1 (Nathan Hall, John Thompson, Phil Steward and Paul Reade) and the overall winner was Kevin.
Colin added, “It was a wonderful day and the generosity from everyone was outstanding.”
