Local charities are Lions golf match winners
Local charities are the big winners in the Ryedale Lions Club annual golf tournament.
Some 37 teams from all over Yorkshire took part in the golf day at Kirkbymoorside Golf Club and together with more than 50 sponsors raised a record £3900.
“This was a very enjoyable day for all the golfers and with the invaluable support from the local business community around Ryedale it makes it a very good day indeed for local charities,” said Lions’ tournament organiser Peter O’Malley. “We have no shortage of good causes in financial need and we shall do our very best to ensure we help those most deserving,” promised Peter.
The Kirkbymoorside FC Old Boys, captained by Phil Butler, took the men’s team top prize while the Essentials, led by Sheila Riby, also from Kirkbymoorside, won the ladies’ event. Prize for tee shot nearest the hole went to Sara Hayman and John Harrison took the straightest drive prize.
