Charity day at the Glen Mill golf course
Last Saturday, Glen Mill Par 3 golf course hosted the first amalgamated Ladies and Men’s Societies charity day.
With so many people and families affected by cancer, society captains Anne Martin and Joe Carroll chose Purple House Cancer Support Centre in Bray and Greystones Cancer Support as their nominated charities.
The weather was kind and the course was a wash of colour as players wore the colours of both charities – the women golfers wearing pink and purple and the men donning blue and yellow.
The centres offer a wide range of supports, professional services on offer include counselling, complimentary therapies, bereavement counselling, services for children and young adults including creative arts and one to one support, health awareness programmes, yoga and mindfulness classes and many more practical and emotional support to those going through cancer and treatments and also to their families, friends and wider community.
Captains Anne Martin and Joe Carroll and their committees put in a mammoth effort to make the day a huge success and it has, to date, raised over €4,000 with the promise of more monies coming in.
Anne and Joe would like to thank all those who took part and made the day such a great success, from the green keepers who had the course in tip top condition, committees and volunteers to those who sponsored tees, donated to the raffle, brought salads and other scrumptious treats and cooked and sliced the turkey and ham and provided everyone with a fabulous buffet on the day.
