Charity Golf Challenge 31st May 2024

Despite the unexpected chilly and wet conditions, 44 golf enthusiasts teed off at the 4th Crowborough Rotary Charity Golf Challenge, rallying together to raise a whopping £1,500 in support of the Wealden Dementia Alliance.

Representing the Dementia Alliance, Allan Penney attended the after-golf dinner, extending heartfelt gratitude to Crowborough Rotary for organising such a fantastic event and to the golfers for their generous contributions. This funding will go a long way in making our community more dementia-friendly and in spreading awareness among our residents and local businesses.

Special thanks are due to the sponsors of the event:
