In beautiful weather forty golfers enjoyed their 4 Ball Ambrose games, followed by a sausage sizzle, at Yamba Golf and Country Club on Sunday August 9.
Before the golf results were announced, Terry Betts, representing the Yamba Veteran Golfers, gave the president of the Maclean Lower Clarence Hospital Auxiliary, Sandra Bradbury, a cheque for $2,500 with which to purchase a wheel chair and catheterisation mannikin for the hospital.
The over all winners of the golf were Susie and Jamie Stokes, Bill Petersen and Tony Eppell. Second were M Shirlow, P Blom, G Martin and K Bodycote while in third place were K and C Stansby, J and B Penny. Prizes for nearest the pin were awarded to S Stokes and K Bodycote on the third green, J Watson and J Scott on the tenth and S Stokes and J Scott on the twelfth. There was also a large number of prizes for the draw of the cards.
The winner of the major raffle was Betty Chapman who received a first aid kit donated by Gwen Dowling (number 47161). The second prize, a Compact Cafe Grill, went to K Hutchison (number 94928) and the third prize of a Wiltshire barbecue set, donated by Audrey Robinson, was won by Margaret Davis (number 47056).
The lucky winners of the numbers board were Michael Shirlow, Joyce Bell and Carrie Aitkins.
Altogether a total of $2134 was raised for the Maclean Lower Clarence Hospital Auxiliary, money which will be used to buy the latest equipment for Maclean District Hospital.
