The Searles Resort Golf Club AGM took place on Friday 21st February to elect new Captains’ for 2020. However, the first order of the evening was to present the NARS (Norfolk Accident Rescue Services), Searles 2020 Captains’ Charity with a cheque for £3500.
The superb amount was raised from Captains Day, Gala Day in June, Ladies 100 hole challenge, the captains chaos and Dave Cox’s Friday quiz nights. Junior member Louise Palmer raised over £1000 of the total by selling golf balls lost on the course.
Paul Strutt NARS Fund Raising officer was there to collect the cheque, stated “they are a small charity and the impact donations to NARS have when even their insurance was £7 to £8000 a year”. He thanked the club for their continued support and Louise Palmer for all the balls sold to raise money.
Searles are delighted to have donated an ongoing total of £12,900 to NARS since 2017.
