Ebury Hotel continues to support Myeloma UK. Every online booking from our own website generates a contribution to the charity, and through various events like our recent golf day, and coffee morning, we have been able to raise a considerable amount of money.
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 £9,500 for Myeloma UK.
To Barclays Corporate for matching the £750 raised by the auction.
To those who donated to the auction and raffle.
Boughton Golf club who donated exclusive use of the course and for donating prizes.
Alison Mason who organised the event and made sure that it ran smoothly.
