Golfers swung into action to raise nearly £700 for charity at a recent charity day.

The event took place last Friday at Staverton Park Golf Club in memory of Malcolm Wincott.

Reach for Health is Daventry’s only dedicated remedial gym which, over the years, has helped to improve the lives of people with stroke, heart and respiratory diseases to name but a few of the health problems that, given the right help at the right time, can mean sufferers can go on to lead full and useful lives.

Rob Juson, of Reach for Health, said: “We held our first ‘pairs stableford,’ annual golf competition and it was a tremendous success, raising almost £700 for Reach for Health.

“Our sincere thanks must go to all who took part, our volunteers on the day, those who donated the prizes and the DeVere Staverton Park Golf Club for the use of their fabulous golf course and facilities.”

The first prize was the Reach for Health Golf Day Trophy, in memory of Malcolm Wincott, won by John Hunter and Dan Haynes

Malcolm, who was supported by Reach for Health, was a keen golfer and his wife Jane, who presented the award, kindly supplied the winners trophy in Malcolm’s memory.

Rob added: “It is intended that the Reach for Health Golf Day, in memory of Malcolm Wincott, will be one of our key fundraising events each year.”

Reach for Health is a unique centre focused on helping people recovering from traumatic health events or living with chronic life-long illness. They also cater for those wishing to build and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
