Wyke Amateur Golf Society (WAGS) recently held a presentation event and handed over cheques for £1,000 to Ducks and Drakes Cancer Trust and Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance (DSAA).

The event took place at Henstridge Golf and Leisure Club and both charities were presented with cheques by Dan Faulkner, Society Captain for WAGS.

Trustees Carol Eavis and Liz Tite attended the presentation and received a cheque on behalf of Ducks and Drakes Cancer Trust.

Liz said: “We would like to thank WAGS for their generous donation, we could not do all the things that we do without people raising money for us.”

Volunteer Doug Wiggins was delighted to attend the presentation and to receive the cheque on behalf of DSAA. The Charity’s Chief Executive Officer, Bill Sivewright wrote to WAGS to thank them for their donation saying: “What a fantastic gift, thank you and best wishes from everyone at DSAA.”

WAGS have been running since 1988 and raise funds for various local charities and good causes. Since their inception, they have donated over £17,000. The society is made up of golfers of varying abilities from across North Dorset and the Blackmore Vale.
