A generous £19,000 was distributed to three charities by Ferndown Golf Club at the Centenary Captains’ Farewell Dinner.
Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund (PCRF) received £9,500 and Diverse Abilities Plus and Round Table Children’s Wish were each given £4,750.
The Dorset club’s two Centenary Captains, Barrie Vincent and Di Groombridge, made the presentations.
Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund was chosen because several club members, including former captain Terry Day, have suffered from the disease was supported by both captains.
Round Table Children’s Wish (RTCW), which makes dreams come true for children with life-threatening illnesses, was chosen by Barrie who was an active Tabler when the national charity was formed in Bournemouth.
And Diverse Abilities Plus was selected by Di after being impressed when she visited Langside School, the specialist day school in Poole for children with profound and multiple disabilities run by the charity.
The fundraising has taken place over the year at events including a Christmas fayre, carol concert, a charity bridge day and an Evening with Peter Alliss, the famed golf commentator, known as the “Voice of Golf”, who learned to play at the club.
