A successful and enjoyable Golf Day raising funds for Oxfam was recently held at Mannings Heath Golf Club.

Friends of Horsham Oxfam organised the event and made over £1,800 to help the valuable and much needed work Oxfam carries out across the world. A big thank you goes to all the golfers, sponsors and helpers.

Gill Bence, representing the Oxfam Group, spoke to the golfers about the Oxfam shop in the Carfax that will celebrate 25 years on that site this year and paid tribute to the loyal supporters who volunteer in the shop. The bookshop is an essential part of their fundraising and a lot of time is taken to ensure that donations are valued appropriately.

This was the 19th year that this event has been held and congratulations to the winner this year, Peter McMahon, pictured here.

More information on Oxfam’s work here in the UK or abroad can be found from the Oxfam shop or on www.oxfam.org.uk.
