The Exeter Leukaemia Fund (ELF) Annual Golf Day was yet again a storming success!

The event, sponsored by Brewin Dolphin, was held last week at the Exeter Golf and Country Club and has raised over £11,000 to support families affected by blood cancers and blood disorders in Devon.

37 teams took part and enjoyed a round of golf in the sunshine, a BBQ and a charity auction hosted by ELF Patron, Steve Rider.

Brewin Dolphin, a wealth management company with an office in Exeter, kindly sponsored this year’s event.

“We’re delighted to help raise funds for such a worthwhile cause,” said Divisional Director Francis Clark. “As well as working in Exeter, we all live locally and charities like ELF do an amazing job. We entered three teams in the event and all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.”

The ladies’ event was won by “Bob’s Babes”: Sue Burley, Nina Hawkins and Shirley Horsburgh whilst the men’s event champions were “St Stephen’s 2”:  Stephen Rhodes, Alan Creber and Don Slee.

The team from Tozers’ Llp retained the Wooden Spoon!

Mags Naylor, Chief Executive of ELF said: “We are thrilled that our golf day continues to attract so many supporters and we would like to thank Brewin Dolphin for their sponsorship of the event this year which has meant that more money can go to the people who desperately need ELF’s help.”
