A KEEN golfer is to be honoured annually at a fundraising day on the fairways and greens of south Pembrokeshire.

Melgwyn Neale - known as Mel - was a member of Tenby, South Pembs and Trefloyne Manor golf clubs.

He had previously been the captain of Trefloyne, where the inaugural Melgwyn Neale Memorial Day in aid of Paul Sartori Hospice at Home was held recently, raising £450 for the charity.

Members of all three clubs enjoyed competing at the event for individual and team prizes, and Mel's daughter, Joan, was asked to present them.

Mel's wife, Diane, their other daughter Carol and their grandchildren also attended to watch the presentations.

Said Joan: "As a family, we asked for all funds to go to Paul Sartori because the support and help they provided during the last few weeks of Dad's life was truly amazing," said Joan.

This first event was organised and run by Keith Hubbard, a close friend of Mel, and it is hoped that the competition will be held annually, rotating between the three golf clubs.

Said Paul Sartori equipment assistant, Leanne Ryder: "Fundraising and donations are so valuable to Paul Sartori Hospice at Home.

"Last month alone, we delivered 83 pieces of equipment to 41 patients, and it is donations like these that help us to continue to provide our vital services."
