BADGEMORE PARK'S lady captain Sylvine Andrews held her charity day on Tuesday in aid of Maidenhead MENCAP.

On a bright morning 50 ladies braved the cold wind to play a nine hole Texas scramble off the first and 10th tees.

The winners on the first nine were Catherine Chandler, Pat Piggott and Elma Grant with 29 points. The winners on the back nine were Kim Hawkins, Val May and Dorothy Page with 27 points. Nearest the pin on the fourth was won by Helen Upson and on the 12th by Jeanne Nichols.

Andrews' handicapped daughter Tracy, who benefits from MENCAP's care and activities, was on hand to meet the competitors.



After lunch John Foulger, chairman of Maidenhead MENCAP outlined the work they do for their members and stressed that they have no Government funding, relying entirely on private donations.

Andrews, along with events committee member Liz Friend organised a tombola, cake and jam stall, gifts and a floral display of potted bulbs, plants and flowers donated by June Gaffney.

The day made £640 towards MENCAP.
