Captain's Charity Day 2017

A big thank you to all at Eaton Golf Club for making this day something special. I Feel privileged to be Captain of this Club. It seems that nothing is too much trouble for the members when they are asked to support a deserving charity.

Twenty five teams entered and enjoyed coffee and bacon rolls to start the day.

The raffle, mulligans and other items raised nearly £1,000 and a big thank you to the ladies who manned the welcome desk.

H A Fox Jaguar sponsored the day.


There was a shotgun start at 1pm and unfortunately the weather was not perfect, but no one really cared !!


Marie Curie were present all day long to introduce people to the Charity and a massive thank you to Charlie Hodson, Hugo Stevenson and our very own Clive and Alexandra Evans.


Karen and her team did a excellent job with a fantastic evening meal, nicely softening people up before the charity auction.

Our master auctioneer, Keith Cross was a star, making money from the tee auction in the morning and then making another substantial amount from the wonderful array of auction items donated for the evening.


Oh dear !! - then the Captain found himself on the winning team. Nothing to do with me!. It was the rest of them !!


Finally to everyone who contributed to this event A VERY BIG THANK YOU FROM ME AND MARIE CURIE.

The total amount raised was in the region of £5,000 but there is still money coming in.
