Winners all round in annual CanTeen charity golf day



THE second annual charity golf day in aid of CanTeen (young people living with cancer) was hosted by the Lismore Workers Golf Club and 112 players took part.

They played a four-person ambrose on a course in top condition.

Steve Ingram??s team, with a score of 49, won the day, which attracted the support of four major sponsors ?X the Workers Club, Bank of Queensland, Lismore Lions and Farmer Charlies.

Other businesses, club secretary-manager Phil Kelly, golf club president Peter Warren and his sub-committee also chipped in, along with the fishing club, which organised the barbecue.

The highlight of the day was a talk by 18-year-old Liam Sluyters, of Yamba, a CanTeen member for six years but now in remission.

All who were there were amazed to hear this young fellow speak so fluently, telling the story from one who has been there.

He spoke of his involvement with CanTeen, which helped him through his sickness.

His future seems very bright, and deservedly so. ?z ?X STAN BENDALL,?v Northern Rivers co-ordinator?v
