Wow what fantastic day it was on Friday 12th July for the golf day in aid of CAFOD ‘s Cyclone Idai appeal which raised an amazing £1200! Many thanks to Pat Murphy and Joe Shelvin from the Catenians for organising  the day .

Pat told me “On a recent beautiful summer’s day, some 60 golfers came together to support CAFOD and its work in cyclone-hit Mozambique.

Organised by Joe Shevlin and Pat Murphy, both members of the Basingstoke Catenian Circle, the golf day was staged, this year, at Weybrook Park Golf Club on the outskirts of Basingstoke.

Players, ladies and men, came from far and near to play in the day.  Following coffee and a hearty bacon roll, the golf got underway.  At the supper following the golf, prizes were awarded for best individual scores as well as prizes for best team scores.

Every Catenian organised event involves a raffle and this day was no different!   The players were very generous, such that at the conclusion to a very successful day, over £1200 had been raised for CAFOD’s work with its partners in Mozambique. ”

Many thanks to everyone who took part in the day, especially for your generous support  to help those who have lost everything due to cyclone Idai.

We will follow the golf with dinner, to which your non-golfing partners are very welcome to join us.

Entry cost, to include a donation to CAFOD, is £50 per player, or £30 for club members.  We welcome entries from teams of 3, but if you cannot make up a team, don’t worry as we will place you into a team with others.

We do hope  that you will be able to join us again to make it as enjoyable as it has been in previous years, whilst at the same time helping us to raise funds for a very worthy cause.” Joe Shelvin  and Pat Murphy
