The third annual Surrey LTA tennis and golf day was held at West Surrey Golf Club in Milford, raising nearly £10,000 for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and The Royal Marsden.

The day was organised by Doug Clare and his team from Surrey LTA, alongside Paul Jameson of Godalming – who was diagnosed with MND in 2017 – with his team of helpers.

The sun shone as members of various Surrey tennis clubs battled it out on the golf course, while some played in a fun tennis competition.

There were prizes to be won, such as the longest drive and nearest the pin, with prizes to the winning man and lady for each. Joe Salisbury, the former world number one doubles player, handed out the prizes.

50 Million Gin – which is produced by Village Spirit Collective in Hambledon – provided the prize for “nearest the gin” on the fifth hole, where a picture of a bottle of gin was attached to the flag.

“The golf and tennis day was a very special and emotional day for me – the goodwill of so many people who helped and participated in the day was heartwarming,” said Paul.

“The weather, yet again, was lovely, and the beautiful setting at the West Surrey Golf Club in the Surrey Hills was a perfect venue.

“We raised nearly £10,000, which will be donated to the MND Association and Royal Marsden Cancer charities.

“Both charities need improved funding into research, to help find better drugs and cures, so it was great we could do our bit to help.”

Kate Brewster, from Haslemere, attended the event. She said: “The day was incredible and ran to complete perfection. The golfers enjoyed the wonderful course, the incredible barbecue and blue skies.”
