At Ifield Golf & Country Club, Crawley on Thursday last 8th June, the Brothers of Crawley Catenian Circle were joined by Catenians from the Province and beyond together with other interested friends from far and wide. The day was rather overcast with a chilly wind but otherwise perfect golfing weather.
The course was as usual for our events in almost perfect condition. The scoring was not particularly high but all participants expressed their enjoyment and after all that is the purpose, that we spend an enjoyable day raising money for a deserving charity.
Other supporters joined us after the golf for the conviviality, lunch, prize giving and our famous raffle where everyone gets a prize! The prestigious Alternate Benny O’Shea golf Classic trophy was won this time by Bob Sparks one of our most regular supporters. Jim Brophy was second on count back from Philip Gidman. Leon Froude won the nearest the pin competition & Philip Gidman had the longest drive. The two ladies played so well that both were awarded a prize!
Our famous raffle this year raised £255. which is amazing. Donations from those present for the golf and lunch and from those unable to attend who never the less sent a donation or raffle prize enabled us to achieve the grand sum of £673 & there may be more to come! The cash raised will be sent in the next few days to Sight Savers our charity for this year’s “ Benny”
Manus & Peter would like to thank all those involved for their help and considerable generosity in raising this significant figure for a most worthy charity.
Well done to Manus and Peter for organising!
They look forward to seeing you again for this year’s “Foley Niblick” which will be held at Rookwood Golf Club in Horsham on Thursday 7th September.
Please note this date in your diary, we want you there!
