Boggabri’s Craig Summers cannot thank the Narrabri, Boggabri and Gunnedah communities enough as ‘Movember’ approaches its yearly close.

Mr Summers, who is the proprietor of Sign Print Stitch, joined forces with the Railway Hotel in Gunnedah to form a team which set out to raise both awareness and funds for men’s health while growing moustaches during November.

Part of the fundraising efforts included a golf day on Sunday at the Boggabri Golf Club.

The nine-hole three-person ambrose attracted 51 golfers who helped raise $1000.

The winners of the event were Rob Maunder (Baan Baa), Geoff Hobden (Boggabri) and Robert Tumbers (Boggabri).

Travellers from Narrabri, Gunnedah and a few from Tamworth joined Boggabri golfers on the day, which included a breakfast before play and a lunch after it.

Mr Summers said that it was an enjoyable day and he thanked all who attended to make it a success and help raise money for the great cause.

“I thought the golf day was a good idea to do something in Boggabri, there hasn’t been much on because of COVID lately,” he said.

“I have contacts either side, in Gunnedah and Narrabri, and it was a good way to bring everyone together at the one spot.

“There was a lot of banter on the day, it was that sort of crowd.

“It was a great day and we raised $1000.

“I’d like to thank all the golfers who came out, as well as the ladies who cooked lunch for us, everyone really enjoyed lunch.

“I’d also like to thank all of the sponsors who supported and donated prizes, we ended up giving prizes for the teams first to sixth and then Bradmans’ prizes too.”

As of today, the Sign Print Stitch/Railway Hotel team has raised $4147 on its fundraising page. That excludes  the golf day money, which means the team has reached its $5000 goal.
