The Mayor, Councillor Tannia Shipley, held her Charity Golf Day on Monday 3 April which was hosted by Surbiton Golf Club. The funds raised will go towards the Mayor’s chosen charities CHEER (Concern and Help for East Elmbridge Retired) and ECL (Elmbridge Community Link).
The Mayor welcomed the players for bacon rolls before they tee’d off at 9am. The competition was hotly contested by 18 teams who had a fabulous sunny day playing the lovely course. The Mayor’s team, pictured, included Richard Givan and broadcasters, Clare Balding and Alice Arnold, who were narrowly beaten by one point into second place by Weyside Construction.
After a delicious lunch at Surbiton Golf Club, the Mayor presented the prizes to the teams and congratulated them all. She said “Thank you to Surbiton Golf Club for hosting the occasion and to the players for helping to raise funds for my chosen charities, ECL and CHEER. These local charities will be delighted that over £2,200 has been raised through the enjoyment of golf.”
