Record number of volunteers help stage 11th Fendis Golf and Fun Day
HUNDREDS of people enjoyed a great day out on Friday as a record number of volunteers helped stage the 11th Fendis Golf and Fun Day.
Despite a blustery wind and frequent showers, around 150 people with various disabilities - accompanied by friends and carers - joined in a wide range of sporting activities at the Priory Golf Centre in Wimblington.
The day, jointly organised by Fenland’s Disability Sports Forum (Fendis) and Fenland District Council’s sports development team, saw participants enjoy games of golf, cricket, archery, bowls, rugby and arts and crafts events.
The event was supported by the Cambridgeshire Cricket board, Cambridgeshire Football Association, Parkfield Archers, the Disability Bowls Club and the Fenland Area Community Enterprise Trust (FACET).
Sue James, Fendis’ chairman, said: “It was a tremendous success again, with everyone really enjoying themselves despite the weather.

“There was enough going on for people to move between activities and the arts and crafts were particularly successful - FACET got that spot on.
“We also had 80 volunteers helping out – more than ever before - and the council’s team did a sterling job with the organisation.”
