6 July 2018 - The Foundation Golf Challenge

The annual Foundation Golf Challenge was held on Friday 6 July at the Royal Eastbourne Golf Club, helping to raise funds for the Peter Bibby Award. Eighteen teams took part and had an enjoyable day's golf in very hot and sunny conditions. The day had started with registration and coffee and bacon rolls before the shotgun start at 12.30pm. The players were kept refreshed on the course with supplies of water and beer, before returning to the club house for the traditional group photo.

Prizegiving followed, with the winning team being announced as AFC. This led in to the evening dinner, during which there was a charity auction, to help raise money for the Peter Bibby Award, which provides bursary funding for a place at the College for a talented local cricketer. Final figures are still being calculated, but the total amount raised through the auction, sponsorship and entry fees is expected to be at least £13,000.
