FIVE LAKES MEMBERS RAISE £6,000 FOR CHILDRENS CHARITY
The Captains Charity for Five Lakes Golf Club for 2019/2020 benefited from the efforts of the members by the sum of £6,000. Captain for that period was Clive Weir (pictured) presenting the cheque to Samantha Baker, on behalf of Metabolic Support UK. Clive explained “My granddaughter Bea was born six years ago with a very rare illness, GA1. Her illness was deemed so rare that it was not previously included in the New Born Screening heel prick test until just before her birth. Metabolic Support UK had lobbied to get her illness included in the testing for which we as a family will be eternally grateful as this decision was crucial to her wellbeing.. The charity does great work in raising awareness and helping the families of children affected by rare metabolic illnesses. It has been a tough year for us to raise money as we haven’t had the normal raffles and social functions that we would have in a normal year so this just endorses what a fantastic, charitable membership we have here at Five Lakes. It has been a strange challenging year to be Captain but the generosity of our members has made me extremely proud to have been the Captain of the club for the last year”
