GOLFERS have helped give a Ryedale charity a boost by raising £342 for its funds.
Malton and Norton Golf Club members Judy Gibbard and Barbara Machin organised a golf day, supported by 60 players, in aid of Acorn Community Care in Norton.
The competition was followed by a mini afternoon tea prepared by Presswell Catering, who have recently taken over the catering.
“I found out a little bit more about Acorn and their projects and was delighted that, as a local charity, they were able to benefit from my special day,” said Barbara.
The not-for-profit organisation provides a supported learning service for adults with learning and physical disabilities in Ryedale.
The farm at Whinflower Hall provides projects which promote an active lifestyle and supports people in achieving their full potential.
The money will be used to buy an induction hob for the refurbished kitchen.
“Not everyone with learning difficulties can sense if a hob is hot or not and the induction hob will prevent accidents and burns,” said Julie Hall, farm manager at Acorn Community Care.
