The KM Charity Golf Day at Chart Hills was a great success.

Children’s literacy and road safety projects received a cash boost from teams taking part in the annual KM Charity Golf Day.

Sixty golfers from 13 organisations raised more than £5,500 at the event staged at the Chart Hills course.

Maidstone-based Baumit and Barclays bank were the main sponsors of the day, both taking part and presenting awards to the star players and teams. Lee Crumbie had a day to remember as he first managed to get nearest the pin on the 7th with a stunning effort and then went better a few holes later when he scored a hole in one on the 11th green.

The team competition was won with 106 points by the Maidstone office of MHA MacIntyre Hudson. The team comprised of James Gransby, Steve Garnett, Peter Cheney and Lee Crumbie.

In the 0-14 handicap competition Malcolm Cook, from Aylesham-based Ovenden, topped the leaderboard with 44pts. In the 15-28 handicap section, honours went to Steve Garnett from MHA MacIntrye Hudson with a mammoth 49pts.

Other winners on the day were Les Gosling, Barry Wesley, Maggie Bates and Brett Sherwin.

Simon Dolby from the KM Charity Team thanked the organisations involved for their support and Dominic Comins for staging the day.
