Kangaroos Charity Golf Day

Despite fewer teams than usual, Kangaroos 9th Annual Charity Golf Day, held at Cuckfield Golf Centre on Thursday 22nd August, went with a swing, raising £3,000 for Kangaroos!

The sun shone throughout and the day was full of fun and friendship which is exactly what Kangaroos offers its members.

Their proud headline sponsor was local firm, Project Sixty One Electrical Services and other main sponsor was Cuckfield Life with editor and long term supporter, David Tingley helping throughout the day.

Before the golfers teed off, newly appointed CEO, Emma Hunt welcomed everyone and highlighted the importance of local communities coming together to support the organisation which will be celebrating its 30th anniversary next year.
