CHARITY was the biggest winner at County Armagh Golf Club this year, with over £4,000 presented to local charity organisations.
NI Chest, Heart and Stroke Association, Marie Curie and Macmillan Cancer Support were the beneficiaries of collections on the club's three big golfing occasions during the season.
The magnificent sum of £1,577 was collected on Lady Captain's Day in July and presented to the NI Chest Heart and Stroke Association by Lady Captain Gail Steed
Club President Walter Neville's similarly impressive collection of £900 from members and guests on his President's Day in August was presented to Marie Curie.
And Club Captain Richard Stewart welcomed representatives of Macmillan Cancer Support for the presentation of a cheque for £700, proceeds of his charity collection on Captain's Day in June.

“On behalf of the Club President Walter, Lady Captain Gail and myself, I wish to thank all those who contributed to all of the collections this year, and may your generosity be continued for many more years to come.”
