2017 Rotary Golf Classic


 



 Thanks to the support of some 100 golfers, 23 hole sponsors and donors of numerous prize and auction lots, the 2017 Rotary Golf Classic raised £10 000 for Julia’s House, nominated by President Richard Meek as his charity for the Rotary year.



The event, which took place on 26th April, enjoyed excellent weather and was staged for the 12th successive year at the Manor House Golf Club at Castle Combe and it was hailed by everyone who took part as the Club’s best to date.



In addition to the two charity holes (beat the Pro and “stay on the green”), the day featured on-course competitions for the longest drive and nearest the pin for both ladies and gents.



After the golf, there was dinner and a charity auction with 39 lots ably conducted by local auctioneer Gordon Brockman. Participants bid for an exciting array of items ranging from a Champagne Lunch for two at the Savoy Hotel in London, a selection of fine French wine, to a days coastal cruise for two on the Historic MV Balmoral.



Richard Meek the President of the Rotary Club of Chippenham commented, “Julia’s House is a really fantastic charity, with their Devizes facility and staff providing practical and emotional support for families in Wiltshire caring for a child with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. Many congratulations to Rick Squires and his team for running a really successful event again this year which has raised such a large amount for the charity”.



Liz Froud, Community Fundraiser explained ‘The Rotary Club of Chippenham has been a great supporter of Julia’s House and we are always bowled over by their fundraising ideas and the enthusiasm they show for the work we do. We are really glad to hear their Golf Classic went so well and we are incredibly grateful for all their hard work.’
