LAST YEAR'S CAPTAINS' CHARITY RAISES £1680 FOR THE ALZHEIMER'S SOCIETY
In 2018, Ashbourne Golf Club’s Captain Alan Mudie and Lady Captain Gill Lockwood both decided, for personal reasons to support The Alzheimers’ Society as their Captains’ Charity. Over the year money was raised through a number of charity events, including the Captains’ Ball, a fashion show sponsored by Chic of Ashbourne, family fun day as well aS raffles and general donations. Alan and Gill have very much appreciated the support of local businesses who have donated raffle prizes and the generosity of members of Ashbourne Golf Club, and people in the wider community who have contributed to the impressive total raised.
The final total was £1680, and on 25 March, a cheque was presented to the East Midland’s Alzheimer’s Society Fundraiser Olly Larkin.
