Disley ladies raise funds with double
DISLEY Golf Club’s lady captain Irene Fell was delighted with a great double of events that helped raise funds for the Little Princess Trust.
The first event was their first Sunday Ladies Open which had amazing prizes with great sponsorship from Hicks Watson and some donations from the players.
The winning team was Sarah Beard (Marple), Jane Darcey (Mottram Hall) and Ann McCormick (Disley), who each received a £100 voucher for John Lewis plus a Jo Malone candle.
Two days later they held a Charity Fashion Show which raised £1,170 for the charity.
Irene said: “There was a great response from our own members and friends and people from other golf clubs and I would like to thank them for their generosity, support along with our own hard-working ladies who put in a lot of time to make both events a big success along with the sponsors.”
Irene then led from the front in a 14-hole Stableford for Disley ladies with her 31 points taking her three clear of Ann McCormick and Gaynor Calvert.
