Bray People - - NEWS -

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.
