What fantastic weather we had for the tournament.
The Crimbo Pullies were out in force and the course looked beautiful.
The halfway house went down a storm.
Motor Sport for MS links up with the Rutland County Golf Club's Senior Section for 2019.
Steve Markham, the 2019 Seniors Section Captain introduced myself and Motor Sport for MS as his nominated charity for 2019 at the Christmas dinner after the Festive Stableford Golf Tournament.
All monies collected via the Golf Club will go, through Motor Sport for MS, to the MS Society and then ALL that money will go to the Peterborough MS Society Group.
July 9th 2019 Seniors Captain Charity Golf Day.
This is the 'big one' during Steve's tenure as Seniors Captain.
Well, what an event, Steve Markham and all the members of the Rutland County Golf Club put on.
The Golf tournament and then the dinner and evening entertainment all went well. Steve, as Senior Section Captain has put his heart and soul into the event. He initially went out to get the holes sponsored and to add value to the sponsorship he decided to have a programme printed for the event. My friend and personal sponsor for printing leaflets for MS4MS, Mike Hodgkins of the RVS Group stepped up and agreed to print the programme. This meant that all the £1275 that was raised could be added to the pot without the printing costs.
Steve's wife Ann, along with help from some of the club members ran two raffles, one during the day and one in the evening, which raised an incredible £773!
John Adkins, a club member and former Captain, organized and ran the putting competition after the gladiators came in from their main round and raised another £85.20.
Once all the monies in, and the outgoings are taken off, Steve and everyone involved on the day have raised another £2,214.01 with another £200 due. Absolutely fantastic guys. Thank you all so much.

Let's see how close to the £5,000 mark or even over the top of it we can manage.
