Teeing off for charity

WARWICK Golf Club captain Adrian Murphy rates the Dementia Support Group Golf Day which will be held on April 15 as one of the biggest charity events of the year.

"We support heaps of charities and the dementia day is one of the biggest," Murphy said.

"It is very popular with the members."

Co-organiser Greg Eather said this year's event would be the 11th.

"A Pocket Rocket motor bike donated by Wickham Freight Lines will be auctioned after the golf," Eather said.

Much of the money raised will go towards the push by the group to set up a respite centre for people with dementia to ease pressure on carers.

Eather said the day was all about helping people, and this year some of the money raised would support long-time Warwick Cowboys player and official Noel Loudon who was receiving treatment for leukemia.

"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 at the pro shop on 4661 3664.
