A brighter future for children and young people in Darjeeling

Darjeeling Cup 2016

Another great Darjeeling Cup event last Friday. Thank you to everyone who took part – players, support team, donors, prize givers and the management and staff at Pontefract & District Golf Club. The success of the event is dependent on each and every one of you taking part, so thank you for your support.

There are still donations and pledges of support to come in – but all in all we anticipate raising funds of around £5,000 (net of costs) – a hugely valuably contribution toward the ongoing work of the Trust.
