ELEVEN blind and partially sighted members of the Berkshire Vision charity were among a field of 35 golfers who played in a tournament at Sand Martins GC in Wokingham.

Competing in a nine-hole Texas scramble, teams consisted of two sighted players and one or two visually impaired golfers, plus a sighted caddy.

The winners were Berkshire Vision’s Ros Weir and Sand Martin pair Joan Franklin and Di Raeside.

Former Reading footballer and manager Mick Gooding, who was in last season’s winning team, also played, as did Stan Bembenek, the one-legged international golfer.

Reading player Chris Gunter donated a pair of boots for the raffle, while auction items included a beautiful sketch of the Sand Martins clubhouse.

The raffle and auction raised nearly £300, which will go into the fund set up to raise £61,000 for a fully-adapted children’s minibus.

Sand Martins member Alan Leason, who helped to organise the event, said the tournament demonstrates the club’s keenness to support the local community.
