Nyngan Can Assist golf day huge success

A total of 91 golfers took to the green in fancy dress on Saturday to raise money for Nyngan's Can Assist.

The number of players tripled from last year's charity event, raising a total of $3577 for the local cancer support program.

President of Can Assist Nyngan, Lyn Webster was pleased with the annual golf day, and thanked Debbie Matheson and the Golf Club committee for their hard work hosting the event.

"It was a hugely successful day hosted by the golf club," she said.

"Thank you to everyone that came along and donated to such a worthwhile cause."


The best dressed team went to the Ambo's and Mim Patemen's team had the best decorated cart.

Royden Donohue kindly donated his time and entertained guests with his live vocals, and Simon Bartley raised $150 for Can Assist auctioning off two toilet rolls.

Ms Webster also thanked their major sponsor Aeris Tritton mine for their support and donation of prizes.

All proceeds from the day stays within the community and goes to helping local people who are affected by cancer.
