25th Golf Day – Fight for Sight
On July 3rd 80 keen golfers in the took part in the 25th Annual Warwickshire Committee Golf Day in aid the eye research charity, Fight for Sight.
The golf day took place at Stoneleigh Deer Park GC and raised over £12,700. This fantastic result means that, throughout the twenty-five years of their support, the Warwickshire Committee have now raised a staggering £370,000 for Fight for Sight through the golf day.
The 18-hole competition, was co-organised by Debbie White, Chair of the Fight for Sight Warwickshire Committee. The annual cup was, for the second year running, won by the narrowest of margins by the team of Ocusoft – courtesy of a back-nine countback from the team of Surgitrac Instruments.
Debbie, a founding member of the Committee, has been fundraising for Fight for Sight for over 25 years. She said: “We are grateful to our core supporters and it’s always great to welcome new ones. It would not be possible to raise these funds without their continued support. Special thanks also to Topcon our headline sponsor this year and all the team at Stoneleigh.”
Both Debbie and her brother, Ady, have Usher Syndrome which includes an eye condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa; this most often leads to tunnel vision and night blindness. She said: “The research projects Fight for Sight fund are so important to understand conditions like mine and Matilda’s. We will only find better treatments and solutions for sight loss through research, hence my passion for fundraising for such an amazing charity.”
