£783 raised for Chairmans charities
The golfers raised a magnificent £783 for the Chairman’s chosen charities, including; Epping Forest Community Transport, a local charity which meets the needs of local people who are unable to use conventional public transport and towards grants for children’s charities and clubs across the district.
Chairman of the Council, Councillor Richard Bassett said: “It was a fabulously sunny day and the standard of the golf was very high. Congratulations to Trevor Johnson, David Clifton, Wendy MacLeod and Steve Smith on their respective victories! A fun day was had by all and even better still – a sizeable amount was raised! Thank you to everyone that took part and helped raise funds for such worthy causes.”
