Wave 105 presenter Steve Power accepts the cheque on behalf of Cash for Kids from Jack the Cat organisers John Howlett and Frank

Held at Cams Hall Golf Club in Fareham, the annual Jack the Cat Golf Day has raised more than £1400 in aid of Wave 105 Cash for Kids, beating last year’s total.

Named after the founder’s cat, the popular golf day began 19 years ago as a social event until the organisers realised that they could raise money for a worthy cause and teamed up with Wave 105 Cash for Kids.

This year’s event saw 68 golfers compete against one another to win the coveted cup. A crowd of 150 players, caddies and family members gathered at the Old Ship at Lee on the Solent for the evening presentation. The prestigious prize giving was followed by a buffet, disco, charity raffle and auction.

Gloria Hill, charity manager of Wave 105 Cash for Kids, said: “As always, it was a fantastic, well-organised day and this year the weather gods were smiling on us too. The 68 players and caddies could not have wished for better weather! Thank you to everyone involved for helping to raise an incredible amount of money for local children under the age of 18, who are financially, socially, emotionally or physically disadvantaged.”

Wave 105 Cash for Kids also encourages healthy lifestyle options by promoting physical, mental and general wellbeing of children and adolescents specifically within the Wave 105 region.
