DURRELL’S Go Wild Golf Day has raised nearly £10,000 for the charity’s work with endangered wildlife.
Golfers clubbed together in 22 teams of four for the event at La Moye Golf Club – and were also joined by British world champion sprinter Derek Redmond.
A total of £9,862 was raised. Durrell chief executive Dr Lesley Dickie said: ‘A huge thank you goes to all the teams that took part in the event and helped to raise valuable funds for Durrell. The money raised will go a long way in helping us care for the unique and precious species we are working to save from extinction around the world.’
The golf day was sponsored by Rathbone Investment Management International – who also happened to field the winning team. In second place was JTC, and in third place was a team from Affinity. Prizes were also awarded to Callum Culf for ‘Beat the Pro’, Sam Dawes for ‘Nearest the Pin’, Andrew Morton for ‘Men’s Longest Drive’, and Hannah Werin for ‘Ladies Longest Drive’.
