Golfers raise over £5750 for Cancer Charity
Friday, October 2, 2015
More than £40,000 in aid of local Northamptonshire based charities has now been raised following the sixth successful staging of the RJN Memorial Charity Cup at Kingsthorpe Golf Club last month. Co-founder Richard Nicholson, a club member organised the first event in 2010 after being told he was suffering with terminal cancer. Richard sadly passed away early in 2014 but the annual fourball amateur team comp has continued thanks to his long time friend and co-founder Andrew Kunman.
This year’s event attracted 25 teams and raised £5,755, the funds split among local charities and the Kingsthorpe GC junior development programme as has been the case in all of the previous years of the cup. The RJN Trophy are also sponsoring the 2016 Shires Junior Golf Tour Order of Merit, the winner to receive help and support including travel, clothing and a holiday.
