St John will be better equipped on the course after they received a donation from a golf competition.
The $550 donation came from a fines system from Te Puke Golf Club’s Summer Business House Golf competition, which ran for 10 weeks from November 17-February 18.
The co-ordinator of the Business House, Barry Smallridge, says he was pleased with the collection and happy to donate the funds to a worthy cause.
“This season the competition attracted a record number of teams and participants,” says Barry, “and it was fantastic to have many new golfers experiencing our great course and club.
“The club has a full commercial kitchen which was very busy over summer, and is now available for functions, including weddings and receptions.”
Treasurer of St John Te Puke, Adrienne Bruce, says: “It will be very useful towards the setting up of the new Health Shuttle service which is anticipated to be launched in April/May.”
