Variety Golf President Jimmy Tarbuck OBE welcomed everybody before the lunch started.

Shortly followed a live performance of two Christmas songs, one of which was sung by the children from the Five Acre Wood Special School, who received one of the two Variety Golf Sunshine Coaches that were presented on the day. 

The Live Auction was hosted by legendary auctioneer Jonny Gould and the Grand Raffle Prizes were drawn out at the end by Lady Wilnelia Forsyth, wife of the late Sir Bruce Forsyth.

There was a great atmosphere in the room and a real festive spirit which enabled Variety Golf to break fundraising records and an astonishing £561,000 net was raised in total!

The fact that a golf society can raise nearly £600k over lunch is nothing short of astonishing!
