Golfers chip in for Help

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - SOCIAL SCENE - By Jack Troughton [email protected]­news.es

Pego Golf So­ci­ety cap­tain Dave Phillips handed a €1,000 cheque to Help of De­nia and the Ma­rina Alta – and promised there was more to come.

The money was raised dur­ing his year as the club’s cap­tain; how­ever, his ten­ure does not end un­til De­cem­ber 31, so the fund rais­ing goes on.

Dave and his wife Alaide made the pre­sen­ta­tion to Help at De­nia hos­pi­tal; and said the char­ity was ‘a very good cause’.

He said: “The money was raised at var­i­ous so­ci­ety so­cial evenings, in­clud­ing Cap­tain’s Day, the sum­mer din­ner dance, and so­ci­ety com­pe­ti­tions – and a lit­tle friendly bul­ly­ing by me.

“I am still cap­tain to the end of the year; there’s more money to come af­ter the Christ­mas Din­ner Dance. I set a tar­get at the be­gin­ning of the year; and we have known the hos­pi­tal and Help for over 10 years so it is good to give some­thing back.”

Help pres­i­dent Candy Wright said the money would sup­port the char­ity’s work. “And the Help team at the hos­pi­tal al­ways need a help­ing hand too.”
