The sun shone and the smell of bacon butties drifted gently down the fairway. The Tibbs Dementia Foundation, Charity Golf Day was under way.

Hosted at the magnificent Bedfordshire Golf Club in Stagsden, the charity had over 100 competitors with 26 teams of four taking part in a shotgun start.

Thanks to an array of local businesses, who had kindly sponsored each hole, there were prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed teams as well as prizes for best scores.

And what a day they had! The competitive spirit was much in evidence aided and abetted by the Tibbs Half-Way House, providing Bedfordshire’s finest home-made cakes to keep all the teams at peak performance.

The day concluded with a celebration supper and prize giving and culminated in a fabulous charity auction, under the watchful eye of our guest auctioneer, recently appointed High Sheriff for Bedfordshire, Russell Beard.

Tibbs Charity Golf Day raised over £8,000. An amazing achievement. This money will help Tibbs to continue providing high-quality support services for families across Bedfordshire, who are living with dementia.

A huge thank you to all the sponsors, enthusiastic and talented golfers, the team at the Bedfordshire Golf Club and everyone else that helped to make the event such a success.
