Abersoch Golf Club has donated £3267 to the Wales Air Ambulance Service. The golf club has handed over a cheque to the crew of Wales Air Ambulance to support their operations. The funds were raised by the golf club through a tournament arranged by two club captains. John Brynmor Hughes and Elin Williams visited the crew at their Caernarfon Airport base located in Dinas to present the cheque.
Money Raised through Golf Tournament
The two club captains organized a Charity Golf Open AM, which proved to be successful in raising the funds for Wales Air Ambulance and another charity. The competition was open for both club members and visitors. There were a total of 136 people competing at the charity golf competition. Their collective efforts helped in raising the funds to support the two charities.
In addition to the golf competition, Abersoch Golf Club also organized an auction of promises, which took place in the evening of the competition. As a result of their efforts, the golf club managed to raise a grand total of £6530. The money was then split between two worthy charities –Wales Air Ambulance Service and Bloodwise.

The two captains – John Brynmor Hughes and Elin Williams – paid a visit to the Wales Air Ambulance base to present the cheque. Their terms are coming to an end, so they took it upon themselves to personally hand over the donations to the charity. The cheque was received by the charity’s coordinator Eryl Jones and a paramedic for the air ambulance, Carl Hudson.
The two captains also expressed their gratitude towards everyone who supported their efforts and donated items to be auctioned. They also thanked the people who sponsored the holes on the day of the competition.
