A full complement of more than 136 golfers took part in the PM Charity Cup played at the Mullumbimby Golf Club last Saturday.

At least 136 players hit the course filling out all the available spots, organiser Adam Culbert said.

‘It was very social golf, and everybody had a good time on a beautiful day,’ he said.

There were various prizes along the way for competitors. Now in its second year the PM Cup, a four-person Ambrose, supports mental health and this year will donate roughly $5,000 to the Byron Youth Service, he said.

‘The money will be used to deliver new mental health services,’ he said.

Support

The event also received sponsorship from a range of businesses and individuals from Kingscliff and down the coast to Lennox Head.

‘The day isn’t just about raising money for a great cause; it’s about getting people together to have a good time, get away from any negatives in life, socialise and realise how much support and help is out there for anyone who is doing it tough or in a hard place,’ Adam said.

‘A big thanks to photographers Krystal Fysh and Jess Rider, and all-rounder Glenn Abbott,’ he said.

The event is named after Paul Mitchell, a local footballer who suffered from depression.
