IN THE SWING (L-R) Chris and Chris Prior receive the cheque from Matt Hazledine

A CHARITY Golf Day hosted by Firefly Properties raised more than £8,000 at Dale Hill Golf & Country Club on behalf of its nominated charity, Lymphoedema Support Network [LSN].

Lymphoedema is a chronic -condition that causes swelling in the body’s tissues, usually in the arms or legs. It develops when the lymphatic system doesn’t work properly.

The final total was £8,106, and Firefly would like to thank Dale Hill’s Trustree, Matt Hazledine, and his wife Vicki, for their invaluable assistance in organising the day.

The event was supported by local businesses of all sizes, from Land Rover, Porsche and Waitrose to Independent Pension Specialists, Goodwin Pest Management and Crabtree Consulting.

Chris Prier, Director of Firefly Properties in Paddock Wood, said: “We were genuinely overwhelmed by the generosity of our friends in local businesses who either entered a team, sponsored a prize hole like nearest the pin or longest drive, sponsored a standard hole, or provided wonderful prizes for the auction, silent auction or raffle.“

Fellow Director Carol Prier added: “The day was a huge success and the weather was warm and sunny for our 80 golfers, which made the day even more enjoyable. Those who joined us for the evening meal and entertainment had a fantastic time, too.”
