In this, Macmillan Cancer Support’s centenary year, Churston Golf Club recently presented the charity with a cheque for £4,200, following a year of fundraising organized by retiring men’s captain Roy Clarke.
Roy said: ‘As an indication of what Macmillan means to local people affected by cancer, this charity has invested £1million in new services and financial support in South Devon the past five years alone, and the programme of improvement continues. It has been my pleasure to raise funds for this most worthy cause, Macmillan is 99% dependent on public donations, and the officers and members of this club have my sincere gratitude for their kind support.’
Club President Ray Rearden MBE said: ‘Our lady and men’s captains choose different charities each year, but Macmillan is one of the favourites. On top of Roy’s fundraising we have hosted a team from Hooper and Wollen which took part in Macmillan’s Longest Day Golf Challenge (and raised £1,500) and the South Devon launch of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, the charity’s flagship event.’
Calvin Lovelock, Macmillan’s Fundraising Manager, adds: 'The wonderful, continuing, big hearted support of Churston Golf Club is greatly appreciated, especially in a year in which Macmillan has begun funding two new cancer care specialists in South Devon, at a three year cost of around £200,000. I hope the example of Churston Golf Club will inspire many others to do what they can to raise funds for Macmillan in this special year.'
