Charity golf day raises £4,000 for hospital
GOLFERS found their swing at a charity cup day held in memory of a friend who died of prostate cancer earlier this year.
The Mark Tanner charity cup day at Hamptworth Golf and Country Club raised more than £4,000 for the Pembroke Unit at Salisbury District Hospital.
Mr Tanner, 54, from Landford, was a member and a greens keeper at the club.
Co-organiser Nick Stoner said: “There was a great atmosphere all day.
“Everyone really enjoyed themselves and hopefully we can raise a bit more money next year.”
The winning team was Pro Shop, with 25 teams competing over 18 holes.
The Tanner family will be giving the money to the charity at a presentation evening on January 11.
Mr Tanner’s sister Sam said: “We would like to extend our thanks to everyone who helped organise and to those who attended the Memorial Day.”
