£3,122.50 raised for Mayor’s Charities at ‘Yano’ Golf Event


Over £3,000 has been raised for the Penarth mayors three charities following the 'Yano' charity gold day at Dinas Powys Golf Club last weekend.

The annual event is held in memory of a "true legend" Ian James, better known as Yano who died in September 2012 after a short battle with cancer.

A competitive day of golf was followed by a just as competitive evening of celebrations.

The golf was won by the all star team captained by Ryan Packer, with a Texas scramble score of 49.5! Mr Packer also had ’closest to the hole’ but unfortunately it was on the 18th tee!

Town Mayor Cllr Ian Buckley expressed his thanks to all that attended:

“A massive thank you too Dinas Powys Golf club who hosted the event, Sharon and Babs at the Tesco community team, everyone else that donated prizes, all the golfers, all the non golfers and staff. I am so grateful to everyone that came along and  supported my chosen charities.”

A grand total of £3,122.50 was raised for the mayors charities; The Amelia Trust Farm and Woody’s Lodge.
