Friday’s Open Day at St Austell Golf Club raised £655 from entries and a raffle – and a further £200 donated by sponsor Imerys – enough to pay for 68 sailing lessons for schoolchildren in the Roseland and St Austell Bay.
Said organiser Simone Kennett: “A massive thank you to everyone who turned up and supported us today. You will have made a difference to many young people by your generosity. The winners will receive a voucher for a round of golf for four people at St Austell to be taken within the next year. Many congratulations to Gary, Luke, George and Darren for a spectacular round that included seven birdies.”
RYST Chairman Dina Wheatcroft added her thanks to St Austell Golf Club and Imerys for their support: “Days like this are so important to us, not only in raising funds, but in spreading the word about the work of the Trust.”
For the uninitiated, a Dallas or Texas Scramble is a form of team golf which places less emphasis on the performance of individual team members, meaning beginners can take part without fear of letting down their team-mates.
So a fun day out for all, raising money for a good cause.
