On Oaks Day (Thursday 9 Nov) the Jubilee Golf Club ladies held their annual fundraising event which raised $700 for CAN-MOVE. The CAN-MOVE program is run by our Community Care Centre and provides a free six-week exercise and water-based program for people recovering from cancer.

The day started with the golf course being shortened to 18 par three holes with nearest the pin on every hole, this was followed by the arrival of many friends for a chicken and champagne lunch, sweeps, best hat competition and raffles.

Sally Timmins, a Breast Care Nurse addressed the ladies about the CAN-MOVE program and Heather Champlin, a volunteer with CAN-MOVE spoke of her role.

The ladies appreciated the help of golfers Keith Moorhead, Chris Norris and Bill O’Brien in the kitchen, Doug Ritchens for the sweeps and John Johnstone in the bar. The weather was fantastic and a great time was had by all, with many local businesses supporting the event.
