Club chips in £8,275 for char­ity

Stockport Express - - News -

WITHINGTON golfers cel­e­brated the club’s 125th an­niver­sary by rais­ing £8,275 for char­ity.

Re­tir­ing cap­tain Paul Hig­gins, lady cap­tain Moyra Levey and pres­i­dent Tommy Far­rell made the do­na­tion to Fran­cis House Chil­dren’s Hos­pice to mark the end of their year in of­fice.

The trio all had good rea­son to sup­port Fran­cis House as their cho­sen char­ity.

Tommy lives near the char­ity’s head­quar­ters on Parrs Wood Road in Dids­bury, where each year the fam­i­lies of 460 chil­dren and young peo­ple re­ceive respite and end-of-life care.

Moyra, from Bramhall, is a friend of John Andrew, a tire­less fundraiser for the char­ity for many years. She auc­tioned off one of her prize pos­ses­sions to raise funds - a book by the late golfer Seve Balles­teros which he signed for her in the 1980s.

Paul, from Sale, said: “We all know about Fran­cis House and its won­der­ful work, so were de­lighted to sup­port such a de­serv­ing cause. We’d also like to thank every­one who sup­ported us so gen­er­ously and for mak­ing our year so mem­o­rable.”
