Lady Captain's Charity 2019:
Papplewick Riding for the Disabled Association
Hello everyone and welcome to my Charity page.
My charity for this year is Papplewick Riding for the Disabled Association. As the name suggests this is a very local organisation, providing horse riding therapy for children and adults with a variety of conditions.
Update: August 2019
Well my year is flying by as everyone said it would. I have been constantly amazed by the generosity and kindness of our members here at Mapperley.
My charity has benefitted from donations from individuals such as Susan Bunting whose sewing projects raised over £90. Norman Wells donated a similar sum from reselling lost balls back to the members. The Ukulele group very kindly donated money raised from their concerts and I had an unexpected £40 from the Lady Past Captains amongst others.
The money raised from the gents raffle in late April and the Ladies Summer Open in July boosted my second charity cheque to £752!
Thank you all so much for your wonderful support.
I presented this cheque to Emma from the Papplewick Riding for the Disabled Association at my Antiques and Afternoon Tea on August 6th
Thank you to all 40 ladies who bought up every ticket. We all thoroughly enjoyed hearing the valuer, Nigel Kirk’s assessment of our items. Whether we had a fake or a fortune and one or two lucky people had just that, it was fun to get together and do something a little different.
Our vintage afternoon tea served in the dining room went down splendidly with Carl and Ricky showing how well they can bake cakes and now that we know …………………………!
So that’s it for now and a huge thank you once again to everyone.
Enjoy the rest of the season. There’s plenty more golf to be played.
