THE Leader of Carmarthenshire County Council is on a drive to raise money for a cause close to his heart.
Cllr Emlyn Dole will tee off an inaugural charity golf day at Pembrey’s Ashburnham Golf Club on Friday, April 13, hoping to raise at least £1,000 for Prince Philip Hospital’s Breast Care Unit.
He said he owes the unit a ‘personal debt’ after staff cared for his wife Gwenda through her successful battle with breast cancer.
He is inviting people to enter teams of four, with competitions, raffles and an auction to help fundraise for the cause.
“Since becoming Leader I have made an annual effort to raise money for good causes,” he said.
“This golf day will be a fun way of raising money for the Breast Care Unit, to which I owe a personal debt because of the care they gave my wife, and to acknowledge the work that they do across that unit.
“The Golf Day is an open event, we’re geared up for 20 teams of four, with competitions, raffle and auctions throughout the day.
“Hopefully this will raise money for the excellent work they do.”
