Golf day makes thou­sands of pounds for can­cer char­ity

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

A char­ity got into full swing at a spe­cial golf­ing day, rais­ing more than £5,300 to help com­bat can­cer in chil­dren.

Ab­bie’s Army was set up in mem­ory of six-year-old Ab­bie Mif­sud, from Ash­ford, who died of a brain tu­mour in Septem­ber 2011.

Since their first fundrais­ing event in March 2012, Ab­bie’s par­ents Amanda Walker and Ray Mif­sud, of Brom­ley Green Road, and their friends and sup­port­ers have brought in around £185,000 for can­cer char­i­ties, and now their own char­ity.

Mem­bers of Ash­ford Golf Club in Sandy­hurst Lane dug deep to take part in a com­pe­ti­tion and the chance to win a whole host of prizes.
