Golf day at Crane Valley raises funds for MS Society
Businesses from across Dorset and Hampshire helped to raise almost £3,000 for charity at the annual Hoburne Charity Golf Day.
Some 27 teams of four enjoyed glorious weather at Crane Valley Golf Course – and one player, Ced Gelling from Vending Solutions, scored a hole-in-one.
A raffle and auction helped boost the final total and the £2,837 raised will be split between the Bournemouth and District branch of the MS Society and Rose Road Association in Southampton.
Alan Lindsay, president of the Bournemouth and District branch of the MS Society, said: “It costs £170,000 a year to run our centre and we have to raise every penny, so you can imagine how much this money means to us.”

Neil Wilson, director of business development at Rose Road, which looks after children and young people with the most complex disabilities and health needs, added: “It’s fantastic that Rose Road was chosen as one of the charities to benefit from this golf day. We care for children and young people from the New Forest and have a play scheme in Ringwood so this area is very close to our hearts.”
Operations manager for Hoburne Golf, Andrew Blackwell, said: “We were blessed with a lovely sunny day and everyone enjoyed themselves. We saw many of the same faces as last year, which is great, and we will be running the event again next summer.”
