THE popular Moor Park Golf Club in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire was the venue for the recent fifth annual Shalom Charity Golf Classic.
A total of 19 teams headed out onto the fairways, raising funds to support the work of Fr Patrick Devine and his team at the Shalom Centre for Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation, which is based in Nairobi.
The scoring was of a very high standard and the overall winners on the day were the Powerday Team with 97 points.
The golfing action was followed by a gala dinner and charity auction, as well as live entertainment.
The organising committee of the Shalom Charity Golf Classic were Andy Rogers from Rogers Associates, Seamus McGinley from McGinley Management and Brendan and Bernadette Morahan and Andy Hastie from Invennt, ably assisted by a hard-working team of volunteers.
Fr Patrick Devine is a native of county Roscommon who has spent over 30 years working in Africa, founding the Shalom organisation in 2009.
The Shalom Center for Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation works to end the cycle of violence in the tribal lands of Eastern Africa.
