Golfers hit the sweet spot in charity match

Golfers put a swing into a charity’s fund-raising by making £1000 for its work.

They presented a cheque to the Horsham Branch of Cancer Research in East Street.

A field of 68 golfers competed at Ifield Golf Club to raise money for the Farlington Foundation at Farlington School and Cancer Research UK.

Tim Richardson, chair of the Farlington Foundation, presented Victoria Godfrey, Horsham branch of Cancer Research UK with a cheque for £1000.

Sara Whittaker, director of PE and Games, who organised the event with Farlington’s Nia

Cumber, said : “It was a great event with sponsorship from the Black Isle Group, Crickmay

Chartered Surveyors and other local companies.

“Farlington is delighted that so much was raised and that we can contribute to such a worthwhile charity.”

Victoria said: “I am thrilled to accept this for Cancer Research UK. It is an illness that has affected everyone in some way. This money will go towards funding scientists,  doctors and nurses to help beat cancer sooner, as well as providing cancer information to the public.

“The branch has had girls from Farlington Sixth Form work there as part of their voluntary service and they have been exceptionally helpful. I know that some girls are

going to help at our other Horsham branch this year.”
