As I’m sure most of you know, our Variety Golf Team Championship was played at the stunning Bearwood Lakes GC last Wednesday 29th July. The event which was very kindly sponsored by Joe Hemani and was a huge success. Joe presented his Variety Sunshine Coach to the Cricket Green Special Needs School (based in Mitcham) who were extremely grateful and made a lovely speech thanking Joe and also mentioning that this new Sunshine Coach will make a huge impact on the students at the School to help them get out and about and go on special trips, which they weren’t able to do before as their last Variety Sunshine Coach was no longer roadworthy – so it was great timing!
We were also delighted to raise an additional £20,000 on the day from an auction conducted entertainingly by past captain, Ian Irving, money which will be used to present a Sunshine coach to another most deserving SEN School later in the year.
The Team Championship was won by Terry Berry, Mick McCarthy, Nick McCormack & Dave Lever with a fantastic score of 92 points and narrowly beating on countback from back 9 score to second place finishers Richard Francis, Tom Nunn, Colin Lewington & Nick Roberts.
