Dragon LNG Group held their second charity golf day at Milford Haven Golf Club, raising over £4,000 for their selected charity of the year.
Over 40 teams participated in the successful day, at the end of July, with one team travelling from as far as Hampshire.
All enjoyed a round of golf, food and the sunshine to raise money for Withybush Hospital Cancer Day Unit Appeal
(WHCDUA), followed by a presentation evening. Bernie and Anne from WHCDUA came along to meet the teams as they teed off and to sell raffle tickets.
The registered charity, set up in 2009, is run entirely by volunteers, raising funds to invest in facilities and equipment needed by the team of clinicians and nurses in the Cancer Day Unit at Haverfordwest.
All equipment supplied is requested by the team working at the hospital to ensure the needs of the unit are met. In conjunction with the work they are carrying out for the unit, the charity is also managing an additional website www.kipp.tips.
Aimed at Pembrokeshire Cancer patients, the website provides a wealth of information including money matters, transport, access to information and much more.
Bernie George, Trustee for Withybush Hospital Cancer Day Unit Appeal said ‘A big 'thank you’ from me for including Anne and myself in the amazing event and giving us the chance to tell people what we are all about. You should all be very proud of the organisation on the day and it was great to meet many of your colleagues.
The evening presentation was just buzzing and evidence that everyone had had a great day out.’
The format of the day was Texas scramble and the winning team was Jason Rickard and his bunch of Merry Men - Leighton Edwards, Greg Murdoch and Jason Thomas, followed closely by teams from South Hook LNG and Valero Pembrokeshire Oil Terminal.
Richard Hull, member of the Dragon LNG Golf committee said ‘ It was great to be involved and to play in in the second Dragon LNG Charity Golf Day, both of which I have helped organise at Milford Haven Golf Club. I was delighted to see staff, business partners, suppliers and club members supporting our chosen charity of the year.’
Thanks go to everyone at Milford Haven Golf Club for their help including the food, use of the club house and the golf course, and to Upton Farm Frozen foods for the delicious, discounted burgers cooked by members of the Dragon Team.
