RICHMOND GOLF CLUB, like every other golf club has had an unusual year in 2020, with the pandemic and associated lockdowns having an impact on activity both on the course and in the clubhouse.

However lady captain, Barbara Gregory and gents captain, Ivan Rookes have been undeterred in fundraising for their chosen charities in 2020, and as they came to the end of their terms in office, were able to handover the proceeds.

Barbara raised £1,222 from members, guests and visitors to RGC for Just the Job, a charity and social enterprise based in Richmond which supports adults with a wide range of abilities, in practical work-orientated therapeutic activities. Ivan added a further £500 to this worthwhile cause from Landmarc Support Services.

Ivan’s chosen charity in 2020 was the North East Autism Society and he raised £1,406 from members, guests and visitors to RGC with an additional £500 from Landmarc Support Services. These funds will help with their on-going youth programme.

A spokesperson for the club said both Barbara and Ivan would like to thank everyone for their amazing generosity, helping them to raise a total of £3,628 for these very worthwhile causes.
