Southport Rotary Club golf day raises £4000 for Rainbow House

An annual Rotary Club golf day in Southport has raised £4,200 for a disability charity.

The 27th annual Business-Amateur competition, hosted by The Rotary Club of Southport Links, amassed £4,200 for Rainbow House – an Ormskirk based disability charity which helps disabled children and their families become more independent.

A spokesperson for the Rotary Club of Southport Links said: “Despite the dismal forecast the weather on the day was cloudy with sunny spells.

“A total of 15 teams took part with HB Villages securing the win with a score of 92 points, closely followed by the team from Southport Insurance Brokers with 89 points.

“‘Nearest to the pin’ was won by Tom Dickinson, a guest of the Firwood Timber team; and the ‘longest drive’ was won by Ian Monaghan of the MJ Quinn team.

“Carole Cochrane CBE, CEO of Rainbow House, expressed her delight that such a large amount was raised on the day and confirmed that the proceeds would go towards continuing to provide conductive education and specialist treatment for severely disabled children.”
