The Chiltern Centre annual golf day has raised over £50,000 for the respite care centre for young people with disabilities over the last 13 years. Last week another £1,000 was added to this total when 32 players took part at Badgemore Golf Club on Thursday.
David Haddock, The Chiltern Centre Trustee said, “We raised just over £1,000. The day ended well. Everyone enjoyed the course the food and the event, all in all a good day with a few pennies for the centre.”
Golfer, Chris Fuller said, “My friend Brian Connolly who I’m playing with is Treasurer of The Chiltern Centre. We’re both members here at Badgemore Park. I’m a Trustee at the Ways & Means Trust so both very close local charities. This is a charity we’ve supported over the last 10 years. It’s beautiful and ideal conditions today. The main thing is we’re going to enjoy it and I’m playing with my two sons today; Thomas and Max.”
Local businesses supported the event by donating competition, raffle and auction prizes and include Caroline Butler Garden Design, Castle Royle Golf Club, The Springs Golf Club, Harleyford Golf Club, Hennerton Golf Club, Hurley House, Henley Festival, Henley Gin Distillery, Hobbs of Henley Laurence Menswear, La Medusa Hair Studio, Spoon Cafe, Temptations Gift Shop, Towergate Insurance and The Relais Henley Hotel.
