Golfers’ wel­come gift

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

THE Can­ter­bury Oast Trust has re­ceived a boost of more than £1,000 thanks to a gen­er­ous do­na­tion from the ladies’ sec­tion of the Lon­don Beach Golf Ho­tel in St Michael’s.

The pre­sen­ta­tion, by cap­tain Jenny Tyler to the trust’s fundraiser Terry Swan, was made dur­ing the sec­tion’s Christ­mas lunch and prize-giv­ing last week.

The trust, which is based at the Rare Breeds Cen­tre in Wood­church, sup­ports adults with learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties.

Mrs Tyler ex­plained: “I have a Down’s syn­drome grand­daugh­ter aged five and this char­ity was close to my heart.”

The money was raised in a va­ri­ety of ways.

Mrs Tyler said: “My daugh­ter held a cof­fee morn­ing for me and some friends held a quiz night in Bethers­den.

“We also held a char­ity lunch with a raf­fle.

“Every­one was very sup­port­ive and we are most grate­ful.”
