Golfers show support

GREG Eather is leaving no stone unturned to cater for players at Sunday's Dementia Support Group golf day at Warwick Golf Club.

Eather has organised Nadia Gaffney and Ashlea Payne to drive around the course in a golf cart to offer drinks to players.

This year's event is the 11th held to raise funds for a respite centre for people with dementia, which will also ease pressure on carers.

The Dementia Support Group day is one of the best-supported each year in Warwick by golfers and non-golfers.

An auction will be held at the end of the day to boost fundraising.

A Pocket Rocket motorbike, donated by Wickham Freight Lines, will be auctioned after the golf.

This year, Eather also decided to give some of the money raised to support long-time Warwick Cowboys official and player Noel Loudon who is receiving treatment for leukemia.

Loudon was home at the weekend before returning to Brisbane early Tuesday for more treatment at Brisbane Private Hospital.

"Noel and I were in the same class at Christian Brothers College," Eather said.

"We want to help someone doing it a bit tough."

A time sheet applies from 8am for the four-ball ambrose with bookings welcome at the golf shop on 4661 4336.
