put to good use locally and, having seen the hovercrafts in action
on our local beaches, we knew BARB was our choice - they do a marvellous
job," said a spokeswoman.

the greens, donations from the teams, and a very generous raffle
where the prizes were donated by members at our end-of-season game."

appreciated" by the charity and will help towards the cost
