After taking my shot one of playing partners Iain Prescott shouted out “that’s got to be close, in fact Jeff that’s really close!” it was only when we approached the green and saw the large pitch mark in front middle of the green that I realised that the ball could well be in the hole because there was no sign of my ball. Sure enough when I eventually reached the pin there it was the ball in the hole! It was a tremendous feeling to achieve the feat of a hole in one and to win this great car makes it even better”.
Craig Mathieson comments, “NPDG charity is very personal to me and is something I hold close to my heat as my niece Lucy suffered from the Niemann-Pick disease. The Ramside golf day was created in Lucy’s name 5 years ago. It is absolutely fantastic that Jeff won the hole in one and I would also like to thank Mike Pulman for supporting us over the last 5 years.”
Toni Mathieson, Craig’s sister-in-law and Lucy’s mother is delighted with the outcome of the day, “the golf day was fantastic raising over £5000 for the NPDG charity. The funds will be used to provide a continuation of much needed support service for children affected by Niemann-Pick diseases and their families."
Mike Pulman, Manager Director of Pulman Volkswagen commented, “it was a privilege to be asked to be involved in the Niemann-Pick charity golf day, and we are so pleased that the hole in one was won. Niemann-Pick Group are an amazing charity, providing support for families affected by this terminal neurological disease. It was one fantastic shot by Jeff who deservedly wins the new Volkswagen Polo.”
