Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

STAR QUAL­ITY: din­ner TWO tele­vi­sion stars went to a golf club’s char­ity din­ner to help raise as much money as pos­si­ble for a good cause.

Bea­cons­field Golf Club hosted the event on July 2 in aid of Iain Ren­nie Hos­pice at Home.

Great Bri­tish Bake Off host Mary Berry and TV weath­er­man Bill Giles went along to give the event a boost.

Ladies’ cap­tain Sue

Bill Giles, Sue Lynch and Mary Berry at the Bea­cons­field Golf Club char­ity Lynch said: “It was a fan­tas­tic evening at­tended by 120 ladies who en­joyed ev­ery minute. Bill Giles, of weather pre­sent­ing fame and pa­tron of the char­ity, was the only gen­tle­man in at­ten­dance but didn’t seem to mind a bit and hosted an ex­cel­lent ques­tion-and-an­swer ses­sion with Mary.

“There was a won­der­ful port­fo­lio of auc­tion lots and raf­fle prizes, gen­er­ously do­nated by many lo­cal busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als, in­clud­ing the young award­win­ning textile de­signer Emma J Ship­ley, who gave Mary one of her silk scarf cre­ations.

“Mary is a won­der­ful role model as she works so hard, yet al­ways finds time for the lo­cal com­mu­nity. We thank Mary and Bill so much for their amaz­ing sup­port.”
