Back in January, we were very gratified when incoming Seniors Captain of Church Stretton Golf Club Peter Freegard decided to make Mayfair the charity of his year in office. The Seniors’ main fundraising event is the Seniors’ Open, which was held in July. The event was won by Mike Foss and Glyn Hughes – though perhaps the real winners were Mayfair, with £1,000 being raised from entrance fees and a raffle.
‘The Mayfair provides a valuable service to the Church Stretton community. During these challenging times, I felt it was appropriate that the Senior Section should provide financial support to the Trust so that they can continue their excellent work.’ – Peter Freegard
The handover of the cheque took place out on the course during a sunny Seniors’ competition day in August. Handing over the cheque was Peter Freegard. Mayfair’s Chief Officer, Nicola Daniels, attended from Mayfair and expressed her thanks and appreciation for the Golf Club’s support.
‘We are so grateful that the Golf Club chose Mayfair to receive the funds raised from this special event. It is the support of local people and organisations, like the Golf Club, that help us provide support and services for the community. After a year of not being able to hold fundraising events, it is great to see people out enjoying themselves at the same time as raising funds.’ – Nicola Daniels
