The three captains of The Vale Golf Club pooled their resources, collecting more than £14,000 to be divided between two nominated charities for this year, Evesham And District Mental Health Service and British Heart Foundation.

Throughout the year the three sections held raffles, barbecues, fashion shows, quiz nights etc which were supported by all members of the sections to reach the sum of £14,014.14.

The presentation took place before the annual meeting of The Vale Golf Club where representatives of the charities thanked the club and members for their hard work and explained how the money – more than £7,000 each – would help them both.
