A WOMEN’S open golf tournament at Kilworth Springs GC raised £765 in support of the captain Brenda Ashford’s nominated charity for her year of office.
She has presented the money to Mary Guppy, chairman of Kilworth House Riding for the Disabled group.
Ashford said: “It was a very successful open tournament earlier in the season, with 140 women competing from around the local clubs. It was combined with a raffle and we would like to thank the generosity of many local businesses who supported this effort.
“The cheque handover was at the Witham Villa Stables at Broughton Astley and it was fantastic to see how much joy the youngsters get from riding the horses and how much support is provided by the volunteers. We are very pleased to have been able to help.”
