Donations With A Difference were honoured late last year when the incoming captain at Walmer & Kingsdown Golf Club, Brian Wash, chose DWAD as the golf club’s charity of the year.
Through a variety of fundraising events - including a quiz night, raffles, prize draws and the captain's charity match - plus members' generous donations, the club achieved a fantastic sum of £3,934.49 – a record for the club.
A further £325 was raised by Mary Hollobon, a member’s wife, who ran a half-marathon during the year. Not to be out done, Diane, the captain's wife, raised an additional sum of £346 by completing a sponsored ‘Sober for October’.
Wayne Hodgson, chairman of DWAD commented, “It is humbling to see people in our local community getting behind our wonderful charity. I am grateful to Brian and the members at Walmer & Kingsdown Golf Club for their efforts and generosity throughout the year.”
