More than �6k raised for Rays of Sunshine charity by Tydd St Giles Golf Club

KIND-HEARTED golfers took to a Fenland course on Friday to help raise even more funds for children’s charity Rays of Sunshine.

Tydd St Giles Golf Club held the event to raise money for the charity which grants wishes for children with serious illnesses between the ages of three and 18.

Tydd have now donated more than �6,000 to the children’s charity during the three years it has supported it.

Brian Shales, the club’s seniors’ co-ordinator, said: “I’d like to thank the 150 players who took part in what was a great day.

“It’s the biggest turnout in our support of the charity which I’m delighted with. It’s a tremendous achievement in view of the current climate to have raised what we have.”

A four-ball Stableford team game - which involves a points scoring system rather than the number of strokes taken at a hole - was the competition played for during the fundraising event.

John Mallett, Paul Strickle, Jordan Hart and Keith Jakins from Tydd were the winners with the club’s quarter of Paul Jackson, Baz Smith, Mike Parker and Dennis Savory finishing in second place.
