A team of golfers representing RfM Preston took to the fairways of Leyland Golf Club in September to raise money for the Baby Beat Appeal at Royal Preston Hospital.
The 3rd Mark Lawrenson Charity Golf Day on 9th September attracted 20 teams of keen amateur golfers from across the region.
The RfM team of Paul Newsham, Sean Nicholls, Rob Flanagan and David Acland did our golfing reputation no harm by coming third with a score of 85, just two points less than the overall winners.
The golf was followed by a swish gala dinner and charity auction. Thanks in no small part to the prize of a week in Antigua donated by Paul Newsham, the day raised over £5,000.
Mark Lawrenson is a patron of the Baby Beat Appeal, which raises funds to provide the Sharoe Green Maternity Unit at Royal Preston Hospital with the latest monitoring equipment, helping to ensure more babies can be born safely.
