Swing for Sammy successes continue

THE fifth annual Swing for Sammy competition has kept-up the event’s success in raising over £15,000 for a number of charities.

Swing for Sammy is a fund raising event at Muswell Hill created in memory of local school teacher who died from cancer in 2008.

The main beneficiary is Cancer Research UK, with a number of local hospitals and hospices, and Macmillan Cancer Support also recieving money.

Winners of the competition were a Muswell Hill  team and the club had more success by taking second place, with a team from Hendon Golf Club coming in third. Again this year the crowd were treated to trick-shot specialist, Jeremey Dale, showing off his skills. He drove off a three-foot tee, using his weaker side, almost onto the green of the par-4 10th hole, before putting on a show in front of the clubhouse at the end of the day’s play.

“This is a fantastic result, yet again, for a small suburban golf club,” said Ben Trow, event co-organiser and Sammy’s husband. “We raised more than £60,000 from the first four years of Swing for Sammy and to keep up with that rate during a time of recession is absolutely exceptional.”

The sixth Swing for Sammy will take place again at Muswell Hill on the fifth of July this year.
