Weston Rotary Club held another successful charity golf day at Weston Golf Club.
WESTON Rotary Club held their 19th annual charity golf day at Weston Golf Club.
Forty-eight teams of mainly local businesses competed and with the course in great condition, the scoring was very high and close at the top.
The winners were the Weston Electrical Services team captained by John Rogers with 96 points, just beating BWOC, captained by Steve Corrick, also with 96.
When all the money is received, more than £10,000 will have been made on the day, making over £170,000 raised for charity by this event since 1997. The prize giving was conducted by Weston captain Scott McKechnie and Weston Rotary president Gordon Fozzard.

Also, £1,000 was presented to the local branch of Cancer Research. The balance will be donated to other mainly local charities as needs arise.
