Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall is Emma’s Charity

March Golf Club Ladies Captain for 2020 Emma Norman

Today, we’d like to say a special Thank you Thursday to Emma, the Ladies Captain at March Golf Club 🙏

Emma has kindly chosen to support our hospice over the coming year.

“My chosen charity for the year is Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough as this is where my Dad who passed away in January 2019 spent the last 10 days of his life,” she explains.

“The care he and the rest of my family received was something we will be forever grateful for.”

Thank you for your kind words and support Emma – it is an honour to be there when it matters 💙

We look forward to hearing about your fundraising over the coming months.

Cambridge Evening News and Charity Cheque

On Tuesday 12th November Past Lady Captain 2018 of March Golf Club in 2018, Lydia Molyneux, met with Tammy Swiderski from the East Anglian Air Ambulance.  Lydia wanted to present a cheque for £1,353.75 which was raised during her captaincy year for this important local charity.

Lydia  “I chose to support East Anglian Air Ambulance because I felt that it was a service that any one of us could need at any time, not just for those suffering from ill health. Having lost a close friend in tragic circumstances in 2017, it made me realise how important services like this are to our community. Although the EAAA receives some Government funding, they rely predominantly on the goodwill of the community. If all of us gave £3 per year they would be able to fund their basic needs. Tammy told me that just one helmet costs £2,000, so my donation, will go some way to providing one of those but it is only a small gesture when you consider the demands made upon the service.”

 

Cambridge Evening News Winter Foursomes

On Tuesday 12th November 2019 Derek Wisbey and Danny Daniel played Peter Mansfield and Micheal Drakakis from Newmarket GC in the first round of the Cambridge Evening News Winter Foursomes competition at Ely GC. The weather was atrocious but the company was really good and the match was played in good spirit.  It was a very close match and a shame somebody had to win but March Golf Club came through to win on the final hole.  The second round will be drawn sometime in December.
