Ryston Park Golf Club captain Richard Taylor is grateful to the British Heart Foundation and held his charity weekend in aid of the charity.

GOLF: Ryston Park Club captain Richard Taylor repaid some of his debt to the people who saved his life at his charity weekend.

Proceeds from the event were in aid of The British Heart Foundation, chosen after the captain had a heart attack last year and made several visits to The Royal Papworth Hospital.

Over a period of time he had eight stents fitted and therefore chose the BHF as his charity. 

The men’s event was won by Richard Allen, with Anne Emmerson taking the ladies prize. Both won a two-night hotel break of their choice. 

Kate Hately was one of the weekend sponsors, donating £500, and presented a prize to nearest the pin winners Alan Clarke, Fran Johnson and Pat Blyth. 

Simon Bird and Matthew Hail won the longest drive and Richard Allen and Phil Jones won nearest the pin in two.

On Sunday afternoon family members turned up for the presentation and auction of four-ball vouchers, a signed Norwich City shirt and two framed paintings of Downham Market.

Taylor thanked the members who participated over the two days and supported his charity.

Thanks were also expressed to Quay Financial Planning, Greenyard, A1 Signs and VJ Clothing for their sponsorship. 

Dick Johnson entertained everyone with the bidding of the four-balls donated by other clubs and the support of members was also acknowledged.
