The Captain’s Charity Golf Day at Wildernesse Golf Club took place on Thursday 26th April raising over £11, 800 in support of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT). The fundraising event was organised by The Captain, Mark Newnham who said;

 “We were very lucky with the weather and all players enjoyed playing this hidden gem of a course located in Sevenoaks, Kent which presented itself in fine condition. To add to this, the Spring blossoms and swathes of bluebells were very much in evidence and added to the spectacular.

A shot gun start saw 80 golfers test their skills during the afternoon. Mulligans and Pimm's served at the halfway house helped players to forget about any bad shots on the course. There were some fantastic scores in this team event; the runner`s up scored a very competitive 91 betterball points and the winning team ‘Norman’s Conquest’ prevailed with a fabulous 92 points.

90 people attended the lovely dinner which was followed by a very successful auction. Norman Yarrow from the winning team gave an inspiring speech about how Parkinson`s has affected his life which no doubt contributed to everyone`s generosity in the auction afterwards.

Thank you to Wildernesse Golf Club for allowing the use and facilities of the course and clubhouse on the day and to all of those who helped organise the event and raise a lot of money for a very worthwhile cause.”
