The fifth annual golf day at Wellow where Lisa worked and played golf was a great success. Over 150 members played in the members competition on an absolute heaven sent day the sun and the golf really hotted up. As well as the members competition there was a separate sponsors competition won by Sue Bakewell and most surprisingly Clive Wilson Lisa’s dad. Ninety two attended the sponsors dinner and 72 the members barbeque. Mr Southampton himself Lawrie McMenemy presented the many prizes and also auctioned a day at St. Marys on his for hospitality to watch Saints. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the ‘Grumbleweeds’ who put on a great cabaret. The evening was topped of with dancing to ‘For One Night Only’. With the raffle auction, members donations and generous sponsorship £6300 was raised. Wellow golf club put on a first class day and donated the guests green fees to the charity.
Many thanks to all concerned.
July 29th saw the Fourth Lisa Wilson Golf Day take place at Wellow where Lisa worked and played golf. Nearly 150 people played on the day with a members’ competition and friends and family competition. Whilst the weather was a little wet at times, golfers seemed to be quite happy to get some respite from the baking sun. The evening cabaret starred comedian and singer Steve Womack who was on top form and well supported by ‘Soul Diva’ Danielle. There were some beautiful trophies and a whole host of lovely raffle prizes. A DVD, ‘Lisa’s Legacy’ produced by Lisa’s brother Ross was shown and the announcement of breaking the £100,000 barrier was made on the night. Lisa’s mum Tricia came second to Sue Bakewell in the Ladies guest competition, and Lisa’s brother Scott came second to Will Cheater in the men’s guest competition. The winners of the members’ competitions were ladies’ Margi Burt, men’s D G Lewis and junior Ryan Burgess. Congratulations to you all.
