Mary Saddington, Retford Golf Club’s Lady Captain for 2022, recently presented a cheque for £3,220 to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice – her nominated charity for her year as Captain.
The Golf Club raised this money by organising various golfing events, a Fashion Show, a Coffee Morning and from generous donations from other Club members.
“Our Club members are always happy to join in all fundraising events for local charities,” said Mary.
“They were particularly pleased to support my charity, which allows the Hospice to continue to provide the very best support to children and young people with life-shortening illnesses as well as extending this support to families.
“It was a pleasure being last year’s Lady Captain as the Ladies section at the Golf Club is particularly lively and is always welcoming new members, whatever their capability.”
If any ladies are interested in giving it a go, now is the time to take advantage of some Taster Sessions currently underway at Retford Golf Club.
