We were thrilled to be back at Worplesdon Golf Club on Thursday 11 May for the charity’s Annual Golf Day.
Organised with the help of supporter, Sue Stradling, and her son Ewan, the competition has been held in aid of the charity for over 30 years.
The weather was much better than predicted as the players headed out onto the stunning Worplesdon Golf Course to play 18 holes of four ball better ball.
Worplesdon is one of the classic heathland Surrey courses which remains much as it was set out by J F Abercrombie in 1908.
The competition was followed by a delicious buffet lunch after which prizes were awarded and Andy Cook, CEO of Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity, gave a short speech.
We were thrilled to be joined by David and Peter Arkell, sons of the charity’s founder as well as other members of the Arkell family.
Many congratulations go to David Chiltern and Terry Perkins who won the competition, taking home the silver salver.
