A CHARITY golf day has raised £3,800 to support services for disabled people, their families and carers at Calvert Trust Kielder.
The annual golf day was held at Ponteland Golf Club and was sponsored by Brewin Dolphin, Patricia Arnold and last year’s winners, Rainton Construction.
36 players across 9 teams from local businesses including Handelsbanken, Garwen Enterprises and the Royal Grammar School battled it out to take top prize and the ‘Calvert Cup’ with the eventual winners declared as Apex Radio.
Other winners on the day included Graeme Watson who won the putting competition and Mark Bell who got ‘straightest drive’.
Apex Radio team captain Ian Curry supported and played on the day. He said: “We all had a great day, we’re pleased that we can help fund the great work that Calvert Trust Kielder does and we’re proud to support them – the golf was a bonus!”
Charlotte Crumbley, a fundraiser at Calvert Trust Kielder organised and managed the event. She said: “This year’s golf day was another resounding success with a fantastic effort from all those involved and a fantastic amount of money raised for the charity.
“The support of local businesses is absolutely vital for Calvert Trust Kielder. The time they give, donations they make and funds they generate means we can continue our work with disabled adults and children. Everyone at Calvert Trust Kielder is very grateful. Thank you.”
The golf day is just one of many corporate and community fundraising events organised and/or supported by Calvert Trust Kielder each year.
The next big fundraiser for Calvert Trust Kielder is The Calvert Ball, a glittering evening of good food, wine and entertainment taking place on 13 October 2017.
