On Friday 4th July 2017 Burbage and Easton Royal Cricket Club held their annual golf day, hosted Upavon Golf Club in Wiltshire. This was to raise funds for the club, and also provide the perfect opportunity to hold a raffle in aid of Prospect Hospice. The hospice is an incredible charity that provides support and care to patients and their families at the most difficult of times, and it is only with continued donations that they can sustain this amazing service.
The day began with bacon rolls and a briefing from the club professional Richard Blake, before players headed out to their tees in anticipation for the shot-gun start.
Once players had completed the 18 holes, everyone returned to the club house for dinner, followed by presentations and the raffle. The raffle raised an amazing £700 pounds for the hospice, which would not have been possible without those who generously donated prizes : DBA Sports, Pure Cricket, Julia Chandler, Marlborough Golf Club, Upavon Golf Club, Dyson, and Manchester United Football Club who donated a signed football.
Many thanks also to all the tee sponsors for the day: Thrings Solicitors, Macer Cricket, Tom Rosier Physiotherapy, Pewsey Vale Coaches, RNB Plastering, Acorn Builders, AB Electrical, Dave Britton, Delagua, Moonrakers .... and myself : )
The day wouldn't have been possible without all the hard work of Jon Chandler with his trusted aids, Nobby Wotton and Leigh Hawkins.
Special thanks to Richard and his team at the club, for all their hard work and support to make the day a success!
