£27,000 raised for local charity

The Macmillan Jersey Charity golf day was held at La Moye Golf course last Friday and the Advisa Wealth sponsored day raised a magnificent £27,000 for the local charity.

27 teams of 4 took part in one of the biggest fields La Moye has seen in years and the weather was kind with temperatures cooling to around 24 degrees and with a light sea breeze conditions were perfect and the scoring was high.

The event was won by Ben Haymer and his team from Santander who graciously requested to auction off their prizes in order to donate the funds to their friend’s fundraising efforts to Macmillan as a result of his brother losing his fight against Cancer last year.

Advisa Director Trevor Griggs said ‘The Macmillan charity Golf day was another fantastic success in raising much needed funds for the charity. It has become an annual event and is the flagship of Advisa’s ‘Supporting the local community programme. ‘It was wonderfully supported by both businesses and private enthusiasts’.

He added, ‘when Jersey has the weather there is no finer place in the world where anyone would rather be, the views were stunning and we are so lucky to have such a fantastic facility. I would like to thank everyone at La Moye for helping to stage the event and of course to all the teams who generously gave their support to such a brilliant Charity’.
