The Harral family arranged a golf fundraising day for The Myles Robinson Memorial Trust on Saturday 18 September in Abersoch, North Wales. Myles visited Abersoch with Sophie on many occasions and played golf there too.
Everyone arrived on Friday evening and met in the local pub where the owner had kindly laid on supper for the hungry bunch that had travelled up from London after work. Saturday morning was lovely and everyone turned up at the Abersoch Golf Club to be greeted by bacon butties and cups of coffee. Steve Harral was busy organising everything and Sophie’s flag and the Myles Robinson banners were put up.
The golf was extremely well arranged by David Munro and his wife, Darbs, and there were plenty of non-golfers around to cheer on those who took part. The players were put into teams of three. For the team score each player’s score counted on a particular hole and there were individual prizes as well as nearest the pin and longest drive. The weather was very kind with the rain coming in after everyone had finished. It was a lovely day in beautiful surroundings and a good time was had by all.
1st Libby Underhill – 38 points (won on countback)
2nd Chris Downs – 38 points
3rd Michael Robinson – 37 points
Team : David Munro, Rob Teare, Bob Underhill & Libby Underhill
Longest drive : Chris Downs – Nearest the pin : Ollie Tunnicliffe
In the evening a dinner was held at the Abersoch Yacht Club. Ruthie Harral and her band of helpers spent the morning blowing up balloons and making the room look pretty. Special thanks must go to Abersoch Yacht Club for giving the room for the evening. The girls sold raffle tickets before dinner, and afterwards games were played and then there was an auction and a raffle.
The auction prizes were terrific and first out of the hat were two tickets to watch the Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor, kindly donated by Cara’s employers at IMG. These were very popular and got the bidding off to a good start. Many thanks must go to Steve, Ruthie, Sophie & Lily Harral for all their hard work in organising the event, which raised over £4,000 for the Trust.
