The SSS Strawberries Charity Golf Day attracted a plenty of people keen to take a putt for a good cause.

Foundation manager Maria Burnet said she was overwhelmed by the support.

“We had 96 players, which was fantastic,” Mrs Burnet said.

“Danielle Thompson, the event director, did a fantastic job.”

Mrs Burnet said the day’s success would not have been possible without the help from the many businesses that made donations, including the platinum sponsor, SSS Strawberries, which donated $2000 to the cause.

“We’re hoping to raise between $5000 and $10,000,” she said.

“We had some fun putting and chipping events and a barbecue.”

Mrs Burnet said the whole day was about locals.

“We’re just a local charity organisation raising funds locally to help local patients,” she said.

“It all stays local.”
