Barnardo’s boost from golf society

Just four rounds of golf have boosted Barnardo’ funds to the tune of £1,062.

The Redbridge-based Yoxball Golf Society chose the childrens’ charity as its 2013 beneficiary, and raised the funds from golf days at North Weald, Stock Brook Manor, Warley Park and Woolston Manor.

Peter Middleton, the society’s captain this year, said: “The committee and I are extremely grateful for the continued support of our members and their generosity in supporting my charity for the 2013 season.”

Last year the 40-strong society – who like to stand out by wearing pink golf shirts – raised a similar amount for Motor Neurone Disease and will be taking to the course next year to raise funds for the Chigwell Riding Trust.

Pippi Reader, Community Fundraising Support Manager for Barnardo’s, accepted the cheque for £1,062 from Yoxball captain Peter Middleton at their head office in Barkingside.
