The Ladies’ Captain’s Charity Day was held on Sunday 18th June on the Holywell Course. Raising Funds for Active8, a local charity supporting disabled youngsters from Cornwall, it was good to see 2 teams from the charity participating and including Aaron Gill, one of the young people being supported, playing with his Dad on Father’s Day.

The teams were greeted in the clubhouse by Ladies’ Captain Tamsin Blake and were treated to coffee and home-made cake while being relieved of a little cash for the raffle by Tamsin’s persuasive team!

The day was hot and all the teams enjoyed basking in the sunshine while they played a Texas Scramble format. Refreshments after the 10th were a very welcome sight, served with a smile by hostess with the mostess, Marion Andrews. In reality this was to butter them up in time for the 15th tee where Trudy Tremain was lying in wait to encourage players to bet that they could get on, and more importantly stay on the green with their tee shot. Needless to say this was quite a challenge and only one skilled competitor managed to achieve the feat, well done Dave Garner! A tidy sum went to the charity from the many players generously taking the bet on.

Back at the clubhouse Tamsin thanked everyone for supporting the day and for their generosity throughout. She also thanked Paul Trevelyan of Barclays Bank for his support with the occasion and for arranging for Barclays to top up the funds raised to the tune of 50% of the total. Further thanks went to the local businesses who again came up trumps by generously providing prizes. 

The total sum raised from the event, including Barclays contribution was £2154.00.
