Allan who chose FORCE as his charity of year, also raised over £1000 for a defibrillator for Exeter Golf and Country Club.
The fundraising took place at the club and included the President’s Golf Day, an Open Day and charity boxes in the bars and reception area.
The cheque for FORCE was presented by Allan Wilson, his wife Frances and General Manager, Martin Halse to Mervyn Hayes, Friends of FORCE Co-ordinator at Exeter Golf and Country Club.
Allan said, “I am delighted to be able to provide over £1000 to FORCE on behalf of Exeter Golf and Country Club and would like to thank everyone at the club for their support of the charity during my year as Club President. FORCE is an incredibly important organisation in the South West. They are truly committed to supporting people affected by cancer and have worked tirelessly since they started in 1987.”
FORCE helps over 13,000 people a year in the region from their centre which opened in 2004. They continue to fund an ongoing programme of cancer research in Exeter and have a number of forthcoming events in the next few months.
