Rotary Club of Chippenham Golf Classic: Thursday 16th April 2015

Golf clubs picture

We are all looking forward to meeting you at the 2015 Rotary Golf Classic, to be held on Thursday 16th April.

The day offers a great opportunity to play a challenging game of golf at the award winning Manor House Golf Club at Castle Combe, which is located in splendid scenery, on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment. The course is listed as the Number 1 Course in Wiltshire, and is included in the UK’s “Top 100 Golf Courses”.

Forever Friends picFor 2015, our nominated charity will be Bath’s Royal United Hospital Forever Friends Appeal, which is building what is believed to be the best cancer care centre for a district hospital in the UK. This is so important, as one in three people are affected by cancer. Everyday lives are changed forever by this disease, which indiscriminately alters the futures of people everywhere.

This year we will follow the now successful format, with access to the driving range to limber up, coffee and a bacon roll to get you going, followed by a “shotgun” start for a Texas Scramble medal competition. Buggies are included in the price and the day will be rounded off with the opportunity for a drink in the bar before the prize giving, followed by a traditional carvery dinner. This will include a charity auction with some stunning lots donated by local organisations.

The £55 per person fee for all of the above is considerably cheaper than the usual cost of playing at this splendid course!

What a great opportunity to play a round of golf with friends, work colleagues, or to entertain corporate guests.

In addition to the two charity holes (beat the Pro and “stay on the green”), the day will feature on-course competitions for the straightest drive and nearest the pin for both ladies and gents.

We will have a number of excellent lots in our auction, which will be run by Gordon Brockman of Chippenham Auction Rooms as auctioneer – so bring your cheque book!

The star auction lot this year is the opportunity to drive a brand new £60 000 Jaguar F-type for a weekend with all expenses paid. This splendid lot has been provided courtesy of Grange, the Swindon Jaguar dealership. If rented from a specialist car hire company, the cost would be £1000+

Further information is included on the attached application form.

P.S. if you would like to sponsor a hole at the event for £125, you have the opportunity to display a banner for your company at a tee and behind the green, plus a mention in the Programme and Auction Schedule. Please contact Rotarian Liz McCarron on liz.mccarron@btinternet.com

Happy New Year, well done Rotary!

We were on Radio Somerset this morning!

World Waterworks and the work we are continuing to do with flood affected residents on the Somerset Levels were just two of the topics discussed this morning when Hugo Pike and Peter Noble were interviewed on Radio Somerset.

When asked what was in store for Rotary 1200 in 2015 Peter replied that nothing changes, disasters continue to happen, and Rotary is always there with volunteers to collect funds or supply the emergency equipment needed.  The general public are very supportive of Rotary because they know that we are all volunteers so all money collected goes to the intended cause.

We are always looking for more Rotarians to help us and in some areas we are even starting new clubs.  We are a service organisation providing opportunities to use your skills to help our local communities as well as international causes, while also having fun and making new friends.

If you are interested in volunteering in Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset, find a club local to you and make contact to find out what we do.

“HOPE FOR TOMORROW” TODAY

132BRADFORD ON AVON Rotary Club member Dan Conley recently handed over a
cheque to Lord MacLaurin, Chairman of “Hope For Tomorrow”.
The charity funds Mobile Chemotherapy Units, which gives treatment to patients nearer their homes, so reducing travel & waiting times & the strain on
busy hospitals.

Mr.Conley stands in front of the newly commissioned North Wiltshire Chemotherapy Unit at the Great Western Hospital which is named in memory of his late wife Linda, where she was first diagnosed with breast cancer but sadly died last November.
Bradford Rotary continue to support Dan with his fund raising & together we have now raised over £80.000 towards the £150,000 cost of each unit.
