At most golf clubs there is a tradition of new captains choosing one or more charities for whom they will fundraise in the club for that year.
Reading Golf Club follows this tradition and this year Cathy Jones, Club Captain and Hilary Rusby, Ladies Captain have chosen to support Reading Family Aid. Any fundraising events that the Club hold during the year will generate funds for us.
On a surprisingly sunny afternoon on April 2nd the two new captains of Reading Golf Club drove off to mark the beginning of their year's. Reading Golf Club's new home is The Caversham in Chazey Heath.
Here are Cathy and Hilary driving off after the preceding captains have "putted out".
At the "Drive In" they asked members to guess the combined distances of their drives for a small fee. £133 was raised on this their first day. Ruth Perkins, RFA's Fundraising Mgr attended the event and was able to say "Thankyou very much Reading Golf Club for choosing us this year".
