Putt for a cause

Area committee chair Lyn Govenlock, St John treasurer Adrienne Bruce and Te Puke Puke Golf Club manager, Scott Evans.

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.”
