Henry's Myeloma Golf Day
Friday 21st March 2012
The day was fine, the sun shone and 72 golfers arrived at Boughton Golf Course in 18 teams of four, raising funds for Myeloma UK.
A good golfing day was had by all, with the eventual winners being the 'Toro' team - Terry O'Rorke, Sean Norris, David Draper, and Terry Hewlett.
The day was rounded off with a charity auction. We had some great lots: Rob Key/ Freddie Flintoff signed England Cricket Shirt, Jonny Wilkinson signed Toulon shirt and a Rory McIlroy signed golf shirt. The top lot went for £1700 - a limited edition 2003 Rugby World Cup book signed by Jonny Wilkinson, Martin Johnson, Sir Clive Woodward, and Lawrence Dallaglio. Donated by Mr T O'Rorke. The charity auction raised £4,500 and the raffle £750.
In all, the event raised £10,000 for Myeloma UK.
Henry Mason, Terry O’Rorke, Andrew Cox, Shaun Barrett, Sean Thompson, Steve Wallace, Rob Knight, Christian Wilse, Greg Hewitt, Nick Dawson, Rob Shephard, and Andrew Nurse all grew some outrageous moustaches for the month of November 2013 whilst pursuing sponsorship, and financial backing.
This event raised in excess of £6,500 for MyelomaUK.
I would also like to thank Alison Mason and Lois Cox for the coffee mornings they have hosted.
These events have raised in excess of £2000.00.
