Teeing off a record day of fundraising

Posted onPosted on 28th Jun

The Armchair Club — a Mansfield-based group that helps local sports people — raised a record £3,000 at its ninth annual fundraising golf day at Coxmoor Golf Club.

Twenty five teams from 17 clubs around the region competed for the Armchair Club Challenge Trophy.

The winning team was Dolly’s Dreamers, captained by Neil Dallman with team members Jim Kirkham, Raphael Richardson, all of Oakmere Park GC, and Trevor Dallman, of Rufford Park GC.

Runners-up were Team US, followed by The Tin Man, Medleys Muckers, and R.E.A.L. Education.

Armchair Club patron and event organiser Bill Taylor said they were very pleased with the turnout.

The support of the main sponsor, Linney Group, along with many others, a raffle, and a silent auction helped to raise a record £3,000 for the Armchair Club, which will be used to support local sports people, clubs, and organisations across the area.

Bill also thanked Coxmoor Golf Club for the use of its facilities and the support from the club professional’s shop and catering staff.

He said the course was in excellent condition and many compliments were paid by competitors to Coxmoor head greenkeeper Ben Cumberland and his staff.

Armchair Club members praised Bill for his hard work and the support from colleagues, including by Julie Creed, Josh Creed, Jacob Creed, Lisa Knox, and Rebecca Truscott.
