Cheque Presentation

Last years Lady Captain, Mrs Anne Weir, is pictured here (centre) presenting a cheque for £3500 to her chosen charity - West Cumbria Rape Crisis. To receive the cheque on behalf of the charity is Karen Shaw (seated left) and Rebecca Todd (seated right). The ladies section held raffles and various social and golfing events to help raise the fantastic amount which is much needed by the charity to help in our area of West Cumbria.

Marras Cheque

The chosen charity for last years Captain, Mr George Ellison (pictured holding the cheque on the left), was Prostate Cancer UK. The receive the cheque on behalf of the charity was local volunteer Mr John Baxter (holding the cheque on the right). George, with a lot of support from the Whitehaven Marras managed to raise an amazing £4120, an outstanding effort.

With an 03:50am start time the four club members set off on a marathon day of golf. Their aim was to play 5 rounds of golf, allowing 3hrs for each round and playing each round in no more than 100 shots - a target they easily achieved. They started with only just enough light to see the first fairway in blustery conditions with a wind chill of 4 degrees in the middle of June! Car headlights were used to light the 2nd green which was still shrouded in darkness. The 1st and 2nd rounds were marred by wind and rain but the guys, in strong spirits, were well supported by the Ladies section with coffee, bacon sandwiches and gingerbread. They completed the final round at 20:05pm.
