Darjeeling Cup 2017

Thank you to one and all for another great day yesterday at the Darjeeling Cup.

A special thanks to Sue for her dedication and support to help make the event such a success, to Malcolm and his brilliant team at Pontefract Golf Club, and to Graham for helping out with registration.

This is our eighth year – and this year we raised a magnificent £5,300 net of costs to support the children and our projects in Darjeeling.

The total is made up from entry fees, some fund raising on the day, sponsorship and donations. A real team effort, my thanks to each and every one of you for your generosity.
