Rotarians find ‘fair way’ to raise funds for chemo appeal
Charity golf day raises thousands of pounds for local cancer patients
BARNSTAPLE Rotarians know a thing or two about fund-raising – and they’re not too bad on the golf course either.
The town’s Link Rotary Club raised �4,484 at its annual charity golf day held at Saunton Sands in August.
The money will go towards the Northern Devon Healthcare Trust’s Charitable Fund appeal to build a purpose built chemotherapy unit to treat thousands of cancer patients in North Devon.
President of the Barnstaple Link Rotary Club, Chris Heywood, and competition organiser Tim Neve are pictured presenting the cheque to Chemotherapy Appeal fund-raising manger Ian Roome.

The money was presented to junior sister Mary Bragg and appeal fund-raising manager Ian Roome by the club’s retiring veteran’s captain Stewart Robinson.
Mr Roome said: “We are extremely grateful to both clubs.
“The appeal continues to go from strength to strength and these generous donations keep us moving forwards in our efforts to bring a new chemotherapy and day treatment unit to North Devon.”
