Billingshurst Lions Annual Golf Day, at Slinfold Golf Club, raised £4,270 for SERV Sussex aka The Blood Runners.

SERV (Service by Emergency Rider Volunteers) provide a free overnight service, delivering medical items including blood, platelets, plasma, biological samples, X-rays, human infant milk, patient notes and medical equipment to hospitals.

Seventeen teams of four players took part on a fine day, using Stableford scoring.

The winning team, with a score of 130 points, were the ‘Latecomers’ comprising Neal Hallett, Rod Callaghan, David Thompson and David Crunden. The individual winner was Sharon Johnston. During the day a raffle was run and after the dinner an auction was held. The result of this was a total of £4,270, to go towards buying a new vehicle.

Riders Keith and Anthony received the cheque from Billingshurst Lions President Peter Coleman at a subsequent Lions Club meeting.
