Hunters Charity Golf Day Raises £8000

THOUGHTS of the recession were left in the bunkers at a golf day that raised a staggering &8,000 for charity an the local community.

The event at Easingwold Golf Club was a terrific day, enjoyed by all.The proceeds will be split between Henshaws Society for the Blind - which has a college in Harrogate - St Monica’s Hospital in Easingwold and York Against Cancer.

25 teams of four players entered; with LSL The Bondsmen - who own several estate agency chains - were the overall winning team.

Kevin Hollinrake, managing director of Hunters, said: “It was a fantastic day and the amount we raised was phenomenal.

“The golf course was in superb shape and the club gave Hunters great support in organising the event.

“Every time we hold a charity event I’m bowled over by the support we receive from businesses and residents. We may be in recession, but thank goodness it’s not stopped people looking at the bigger picture and supporting good causes.”

The event also included a charity auction, with lots including dinner cooked in your home for a party of eight, donated by the award-winning Durham Ox at Crayke. Sponsorship from new home builders Redrow, conveyancing company Live and commercial property experts Get Busy Living enabled plenty of prizes to be on offer, including the chance to win a brand new car on the 11th.
