Golf competion raffles raise £1000

The Tidworth Garrison Golf Club runs an annual open competition for seniors, and alongside it a fundraising raffle. For the past 2 years Vice Captain John has arranged for it to be in aid of aniridia. His 4 year granddaughter Sabrina has aniridia.

After the latest he said:

The 2021 Seniors Open day was a glorious success. Weather was excellent for golf – no rain light wind and not too hot. There were 153 competitors from all over the country – including Scotland and Lancashire with the bulk coming from Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset and Berkshire. All were very complimentary of the course, the club, the organisation and the catering.

They also raffle off prizes including wine and spirits and golfing paraphernalia. They provided aniridia information sheets alongside the ticket sales.

I am happy to say that the take-up of the raffle was very good and competitors were very interested and happy to buy tickets to support the cause.

In 2020 they raised £400 and this year £600 for Aniridia Network. Magnificent.

Thank you very much to John and everyone who organised and took part the event/raffle. Effort and kindness like this mean we can keep supporting families like Sabrina’s.
