Due to the ash cloud, there were a few players short however, more than 60 golfers took to the course. They were joined by another 40 guests for an evening meal followed by the auction and a raffle which was supported by many local companies.

Bob's brother Alan Downing awarded the trophies to the team winners HSBC bank and a speech was given by Brenda Clabburn from the British Heart Foundation who explained how the money helped the foundation. This year the event raised an amazing �10,700 for the British Heart Foundation, and pictured are Kerry Hester and Jenny England from Maritech presenting the cheque to Brenda Clabburn and Beryl Jones from the British Heart Foundation.
