Supporting local charities
The club ‘feel’ also embraces the community - with a very active charity programme that raises significant sums of money every year. Every summer the club hosts a fun day in aid of the Captains’ charities. This combines golf, food and entertainment. It's always fun and raises money for a good cause too.
In 2017/18 the charity we support is:
Diabetes UK are the UK’s leading diabetes charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns on behalf of every person affected by or at risk of diabetes. That means that, if you’re living with diabetes, care for someone who does, or are worried about your risk of getting Type 2, we’re here for you.
We provide care, support and information, because we know that diabetes is complicated and can be difficult to manage. We campaign tirelessly for better care and treatment for everyone with diabetes. Our researchers are leading the way in understanding diabetes – how best to treat it, avoid it and cure it.
Imagine being diagnosed with a condition that has no cure and requires careful management every minute of the day, and getting the right treatment depended on where you live. Imagine people didn’t take your condition seriously or thought it was self-inflicted. That’s why Diabetes UK’s work is so important.
With our help, people with diabetes can understand their condition, manage it, and live a full and happy life.
