Lady Captain's Charity 2017:
Nottingham City Hospital Neonatal Unit
My name is Maria Timson and I am Lady Captain this year at Mapperley. As with prior Lady Captains it is the norm to choose a charity to support. Over the years we have supported numerous charities, all very worthy courses and we are proud to have helped raise awareness and funds to help them. It gives me great pleasure to choose a charity nearer to home so to speak, this being the Neonatal Baby Unit. at Nottingham City Hospital.
A majority of us know the joys that children bring into our lives, but in some case the sadness too. This special unit helps these little babies born too early or in need of help due to illness. The staff are hardworking and when looking after these little babies their dedication and compassion knows no bounds. I would like to raise the funds to help this unit so they can put it to good use for the babies and their families. I welcome any support from anyone during my year with my charity and I thank you in advance.
I would like to thank my main sponsor Mr Robert Sansom of Frank Key, Daybrook, who has kindly supported my charity this year and has already raised £3,000 for the Neonatal Unit which as started the ball rolling for this worthy cause. A big thank you for your support.
I would like to thank the Ladies Committee and Ladies section for all their hard work, especially with arranging my Charity Texas Scramble. Also for the many sponsors who have made donations for this event - their names are listed on the notice board in the Ladies locker room. Thank you all for your kindness – it is overwhelming.
I wish all the members a good golfing year but most of all good health always.
