Charity organiser Claire Slade-Carter gave a very moving speech explaining the profound difference that this amount will make to the charity.

The funds were raised thanks to the generosity of Freshwater Bay GC members through various special events such as the Charity Day in August and 100 holes of golf all played in a day by club stalwart and Iron-man, Steve Orchard.
