Golfers have raised £4,000 for Canterbury Oast Trust after enjoying 18 holes and mid-game nibbles.
The Rotary Club of Tenterden annual golf day saw 88 players take to the local course following a bacon butty, pausing to enjoy refreshments at the first and 10th holes courtesy of the trust’s catering students.
Canterbury Oast Trust, which owns and runs the Rare Breeds Centre in Woodchurch, provides opportunities for adults with learning disabilities and was among the major charitable beneficiaries of the event.
Gill Gibb, chief executive of the trust, said: “It was a wonderful day, enjoyed by all.
“The golf raised most of the money, with sponsorship, sales of plants from our nursery, tickets for our rocking horse raffle and an auction taking us over the £4,000 mark.
“In addition, rotary club president Phil Auden presented the trust with a cheque for £1,394 from the Rotary Foundation and the club’s own funds, which will go towards a specialist bath to support people with severe mobility needs.”
The day culminated with prize-giving and the auction, which featured donations from NatWest, Powcom, Mulberry Cottages, Hobbs Parker, Coty, Wilkins Kennedy, US Cop Cars, and Kent Cricket.
Gill added: “We would like to say a big thank you to the Rotary Club of Tenterden for their hard work and donation and to all the golfers who got in the swing of things.”
