A charity golf day held for a Northwood cancer centre at Denham Golf Club managed to raise an incredible £11,000 for the cause.
The annual Stableford competition, now into its fifteenth iteration, is organised to fundraise for the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre at Mount Vernon Hospital. The centre works to provide CT, MRI and PET/CT scans to help diagnose monitor primarily cancer, but other diseases too.
The money raised throughout the day will be used in the future to provide patients with cutting-edge equipment, as well as fund research into cancer and other conditions.
A total of 15 teams made up of 60 people took part in this year’s event, which took place on Tuesday, June 7. The winners were a team named ‘the Bigger Buggie Boys’, whilst ‘Los Sombreros’ took a respectable second place.
Caroline Wren, fundraiser for the scanner centre, said: “We had a great turnout this year, the sun was out, and once again the team at Denham Golf Club were brilliant hosts.
“A big thank you to all our supporters and golfers for their generosity and everyone who helped make this another amazing charity golfing day.
“A special thanks also go to our volunteers on the day, in particular to Pam Holland and her helpers from Moor Park Golf Club.
“Auction and raffle prizes were kindly donated by local businesses and individuals. Thank you to all for your generosity. Here’s to next year’s golf day which we are already planning.”
