About the day…
On the 23rd of June 2021, Andrew Mooney (M.D.) entered a team of four in a Golf Day held at Sale Golf Club, in aid of Stockdales’ Charity, based in Sale. The guests were blessed with beautiful weather and were treated to lunch, followed by a shotgun start at 1.15pm. Afterwards there was a BBQ, a raffle and prize presentation. The day proved to be a great success, with many people supporting the event and helping to raise much needed funds for Stockdales. All proceeds from the event went towards Stockdales’ vital work supporting children and adults with learning disabilities and life-limiting conditions.
