Enmore Park Lady Captain’s Charity Day was held on Wednesday 19th May in glorious sunshine.
The theme was Pretty in Pink, Purple and Turquoise, the colours of the Lady Captain’s Charity Somerset and Avon Rape and Sexual Abuse Support (SARSAS).
In total 55 ladies took part in this fun event, dressed in the colours of the charity playing an 18 hole and 9-hole team competition with all proceeds going to charity.
Afterwards Claire Bloor CEO SARSAS joined the ladies to tell them about the work of the charity in Bridgwater and Taunton and how money raised will be used to support local communities.
Julie Blumgart, Lady Captain said : “This was the first opportunity for us to meet as a section with the Clubhouse now open and the outside Marquee available and what an amazing day it was and I couldn’t have wished for better weather. The ladies are so generous in supporting my charity and an amazing £870 was raised.”
The winning 18 hole team with 74 points was Rachel Johnson, Heather Neale and Eve Bolton and the winners of the 9 hole competition Lynn Slocombe, Lorna Parker and Carolyn Blackwood.
