On Tuesday 23rd October Ron & Eileen Wilkes accompanied by Richard Herring visited the Southend Urology department to present Mr Acher with the cheque for £5000 that the Members kindly donated, all in an afternoon at Orsett Golf Club!
Friday 14th September saw over 100 members & their guests gather at the Club for an afternoon of golf, fun & most importantly fundraising. Now in its third year this years efforts raised £5000. This is evenly split between Prostate Cancer UK & Southend University Hospital Urology Department ensuring that the efforts of all concerned and the monies raised are used here, close to home where so many of our Members have been treated over the years. Mr Acher always joins Ron Wilkes to play on the day and was kind enough to speak to all those gathered about the stigmas associated with the disease as well as how the money is used in the continued research locally into the early detection of the disease.
Looking forward to 2019 I am sure the Members will be looking to add to the £12,500 that has been raised in the past 3 years, Ron & Eileen along with all at the Urology department are so thankful for the support shown to this charity.
