Another very successful Golf Day with SOS Kit Aid

The annual SOS Kit Aid South West Golf Day was held on Friday 4th September. It was a hugely successful event with 28 teams fighting it out around Kingsdown Golf Club which was in fantastic condition. Our SOS Ambassadors and guests Gareth Chilcott – Graham Price – Steve Spiers - Andy Deacon – Simon Devereux presided over the whole day and Graham & Steve aka big Al concluded everything with a most entertaining and hilarious prize giving.

Richard Westaway Regional Director added…”The day is not only about raising much needed funds but we are reaching out and informing more and more people about what do. With 100 + people attending and playing in our ninth year the event has turned into one of our most important days in the charities calendar. The monies raised will enable to us to continue our valuable work to help and support underprivileged kids to play rugby in developing countries.

Our thanks to all of very loyal sponsors and supporters who combine to make this a truly successful day for SOS. Also a massive thanks to Pat Bunton for the kind kit donation ( 5 x sets of shirts ) on behalf of Oldfield RFC.
