As secretary of Gama Golf Society, Derek Parsons was instrumental in the organisation of this years Russ Abbott Celebrity Classic golf event. Raising money for the Sunshine Coach Appeal, this event has become an enshrined yearly fixture. The event starts with a dinner and cabaret on the Sunday night before teams, captained by a celebrity, tee off on the Monday.
In total £13,000 was raised on the Sunday night and 4 coaches were handed over to worthy causes on the day. PMSG donated a number of auction prizes as well as donating time to make up the gift bags. Donations were also made by First Drinks and Continental Tyre Group.
