Golfers swing into action to support county charity

A charity golf event has given a big boost to the work of a Gloucestershire charity.

The Charity Golf Day at Minchinhampton Golf Club help raised over £10,000 for The Nelson Trust based in Stroud.

The abstinence-based treatment centre has provided support for people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction for three decades.

The Nelson Trust Charity Golf Day was sponsored by Cotswold BMW, Ardent and Sandler Training.

The team from Ardent, Jason Briggs, Craig Ashby, Wayne Anderson and James Grant (pictured right) won the Richard Lister Memorial Cup. Mr Lister was chairman of the Nelson Trust for 11 years and his son Rob Lister and his company, Stonehouse-based Lister Unified Communications, continue to support the important work of the charity.

Melissa Atherton, corporate and events co-ordinator for The Nelson Trust, said: "The event was a huge success, raising over £10,000 towards our services. The Golf Day is an occasion to remember the work of Richard Lister and how instrumental he was to so many of our fundraising activities.

"We must extend our thanks to the team at Minchinhampton Golf Club who looked after us on the day and our sponsors Cotswold BMW, Ardent and Sandler Training."

She said the money raised would enable The Nelson Trust to give a stable future to families struggling with addiction.
