On 8 March 2019 a very successful charity golf tournament was held in Whangarei. Organised by Whangarei Lions, 24 teams competed including a team from Arthritis New Zealand. The two recipient charities were Arthritis New Zealand and Alzheimer’s and the day was a wonderful combination of raising funds for worthy causes and people enjoying the great day. Thank you to everyone that helped make this day enjoyable and successful.
