Perranporth Golf Club has raised an incredible £9,656 for Cornwall Air Ambulance from a series of fundraising events throughout the year.
Club Captain Peter Naish presented the cheque to Cornwall Air Ambulance Trustee, Ian Brackenbury, at the club on Saturday 23 March.
The club chose Cornwall Air Ambulance as its charity of the year after one of its members needed the assistance of the helicopter service.
Peter said: “This year we had cause to call out the helicopter when one of our members was taken ill on the course, he has thankfully made a great recovery thanks to the skill and expertise of the paramedics.
“I would like to thank our major sponsors Lloyds Bank, Truro Timber Frames, Macsalvors Crane Hire and The Davies Partnership Solicitors and of course all the members of the club who have been fined, quizzed, played their cards right and mulliganed all in a good cause.”
Becky Wise, Community Fundraising Manager for Cornwall Air Ambulance, said: “We are overwhelmed with the generosity of the club members. It’s a fantastic amount to raise and will really make a huge difference to the charity. A huge thank you to Peter for choosing Cornwall Air Ambulance as the captain’s charity of the year.”
