Captain's Newsletter - 5 September 2021

Hi Ladies,

I would like to start by congratulating you all! We now have the numbers which confirm the amount you raised on our 'Charity Day' which was held recently in aid of ‘The Magic of Play’ and the ‘Volunteer Butterfly Service’ both operating at the Lister Hospital. It's an amazing £5,242,65!!!! We are now looking at a total raised so far in excess of over £7000 to date. Well done to everyone on this mega achievement, especially as we only came out of lockdown in March. A truly magnificent achievement ladies! Many thanks to everyone who helped on the day, who donated and took part! We are certainly putting some smiles back on the faces of sick children, and helping to comfort those in their final hours. I can't thank you enough for your enormous generosity, best ladies section ever.

Solheim Cup: Friday saw Chesfield Downs (USA) take on new opponents 'The Essex' (Europe). 22 ladies travelled from Essex to Chesfield Downs to take part in our very own Solheim Cup. This is our first year competing against our new opponents, and the enthusiasm from both teams was beyond anything I could have expected as you will see from the photos below. Sadly it was not to be Chesfields day, and despite some very close matches the Essex took the cup, but our revenge will be at the Essex in two years time when I am sure we will bring it home! Well played Chesfield, and congratulations to the Essex. What a great day!
