Rotary Golf Cheque Presentation 2018
£2,000 donated to local charities.
On a beuutiful sunny summer’s day on the 27th June 2018 at Pleasington Golf Club, the Rotaries at Blackburn and Clitheroe jointly hosted a Golf Charity Day in aid of both the East Lancs Hospice and Macmillan Nurses (North West).
This was the 17th consecutive year the event has been hosted originally by Blackburn Rotary on their own but since 2017 jointly with Clitheroe Rotary.
The event was well supported with 30 teams of 4, and we thank all the participants and donors as well as Pleasington GC for allowing us the use of their course.
As usual it takes a few weeks to sort out the final details of the fund-raising accounts but on Thursday 6th Sept in a joint session, the Presidents of Blackburn Rotary (Don - Fraser-Clark) and Clitheroe Rotary (Sandy Morrison) were able to present a cheque for £1,000 to Cath Leech of East Lancs Hospice and £1,000 to Hannah Richmond Macmillan Nurses (North West). The 2 Presidents were supported by a few of the Event Organisers at the presentation.
Both Cath and Hannah conveyed their thanks to both Rotary Clubs for the ongoing financial support QUOTE "because continuing to receive funds is vital to their work in our area and also because they personally know how much time and effort it takes to make fund-raising events work well."
Fortunately both Rotary Clubs were able to confirm that the Golf Event will be held again next year at Pleasington GC on Wednesday 26th June 2019 and that both Macmillan Nurses (North West) and East Lancs Hospice will remain the main beneficiaries of the Golf Day. We just hope the weather will be kind to us again next year.
We would be delighted to have more teams taking part.
More information or details can be obtained by contacting either Rotary Club, Macmillan Nurses or East Lans Hospice.
Thanks again to all who made it a huge success.
