The Rotary Club of Carrickfergus Annual Fund Raising Golf Day was this year run in association with NK Group. Liaising with Rotarian Michael McCune, NK Group donated a generous amount of time both organising and administering the whole event which netted 6,775 in aid of Rotary Projects.

The NK Group have long had an association with the Rotary Club of Carrickfergus. Their late group managing director Roy Davidson, was a highly committed Rotarian. He joined Carrickfergus Rotary Club in 1987, was President in 1995-96 and was instrumental in setting up the first hugely successful fundraising golf day. Following his passing the Davidson family have continued to support Carrickfergus Rotary Club events and donated the Roy Davidson Perpetual Golf Trophy to be awarded to the winning team on the charity golf day.

On the day the weather was superb and the event ran like clockwork thanks to the efficiency of NK Group's personnel Sharon Davidson and Simon Ferguson who provided a colourful, smiling and welcoming registration partnership which set the tone for a competitive but fun filled day.

Carrickfergus Rotary Club President Brenda Houston thanked the NK Group for their organisation, for the tremendous effort they put into attracting 18 fourball teams to compete for the Roy Davidson Perpetual Trophy and other valuable prizes, and also for attracting a huge number of sponsors to support the event by providing prizes and sponsoring holes. She thanked all the sponsors for their generous support.

Jennifer Davidson, wife of the late Roy Davidson presented the Roy Davidson Perpetual Trophy to the winning fourball team of Jai Johnston, Simon Wady (current Captain Carrickfergus Golf Club),Duncan McLeod and Darren Awin.

President Brenda also thanked Carrickfergus Golf Club caterers and green keepers for their valuable contribution to the success of the event.
