Golfers raised a bumper £1700 for two Plymouth charities as an annual tournament organised by a city based organisation of property professional was another great success.

Yelverton Golf Club hosted the event on Friday 16th June staged by the Plymouth Area Property Professionals Association (PAPPA), an elite group of fully accredited property experts with more than 500 years’ combined industry experience.

In a closely fought contest between 13 teams made up of property industry colleagues and clients, it was PAPPA members Stratton Creber Commercial, who came out on top in the tournament, held in aid of Shekinah and Horizons Plymouth.

Darren Lawson, of fellow PAPPA members Mansbridge Balment Plymouth, was also on a winning streak himself scooping two prizes in the raffle – a meal for two at the city’s Duke of Cornwall Hotel and an electric golf trolley.

Natalie Ebsworth of Maitlands, the current PAPPA chair, said: “Once again, the PAPPA Golf Day was a tremendous success and we were particularly lucky that the sun shone for our outdoor barbeque in the afternoon.

“Thank you to everyone who took part in what was an amazing day, helping us to raise an excellent sum of money for two very deserving charities.”

Horizons Plymouth is a sailing charity formed to help disadvantaged and disabled children from the inner city communities in Plymouth get involved in water based activities, while Shekinah provides opportunities for those in recovery, or seeking recovery from a range of issues, such as homelessness, drug and alcohol problems or mental ill health.
