On Thursday 18th October, 14 teams took to the beautiful course at Denham Golf Club for the Tom Isaacs Charity Golf Day, raising £6,821 for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT).

The clouds disappeared just in time for tee-off, and players made their way round 18 holes in the autumn sun. Prizes were awarded for ‘Nearest the Pin’ and ‘Straightest Drive’ for both ladies and gentlemen, with the coveted Tom Isaacs trophy, kindly donated in 2017 by the ‘South Bank Surveyors’ team, being awarded to the winners of the day. A special congratulations to this year's winning team ‘The Poulter-gheists’, a team of lawyers and attorneys from Marks & Clerk who came first with a score of 95. 

We would also like to congratulate the runner up, the 'Winchmore Hill Sporting Club' with a score of 93, Sue Hinds and Andy Bacon for winning the prizes for the ladies and men’s ‘straightest drive’ and to Jane Vaillancourt and Charlie Dunster for winning the prizes for the ladies and men’s ‘nearest the pin’.

The day concluded with a dinner, raffle and charity auction in Denham’s clubhouse, where the prizes were also presented.

For the second year the golf day was held in memory of the late Tom Isaacs, CPT’s co-founder and President who passed away in May 2017. Tom was a keen golfer and enjoyed playing at Denham. Will Cook, CEO of CPT and a participant at the golf day, said:

“Another lovely day on the beautiful course at Denham was worthy of Tom’s memory.  The sun shone, the fairways forgave and we all had a lot of fun. We at CPT are very grateful to all those who joined us on this special day and helped raise more money for our pioneering research for a cure for Parkinson’s. This was worth coming out of golfing retirement for!”

Huge thanks to CPT Trustee Rick Cawdron for organising the day, and to all those who took part and donated so generously to CPT.
