Golf round-up: Tydd St Giles seniors chip in with £700 for charity at sponsored event

An impressive £700 was raised for Prostate Cancer as Tydd St Giles Golf Club’s senior section put on a sponsored charity event.

The competition, which was a Stableford and was won by Andy Betts, was the first the club’s seniors have been able to put on since the COVID-19 restrictions came into place.

Organiser Toby North, who saw his event plagued by bad weather, was delighted with the efforts of everyone involved.

He said: “I’m pleased to announce that on the day, with contributions from members and sponsors, £700 was raised for the charity.

“The competition was played in less than perfect weather conditions, but was enjoyed by all.

“Thanks to all for taking part and special thanks to the sponsors, including local companies Kerry Global, Matterhorn, Quay Central Ltd and ADS.”

A score of 38 points was enough for Betts to take first place in the competition, with Peter Sharpe hot on his heels in second with 36 points.

David Abram (35 points) completed the top three.
