Ladies at Wycombe Heights get festive for charity

Ladies from Wycombe Heights Golf Centre were spreading Christmas cheer at this year's Ladies Par 3 Fun Day Event, and helped to raise more than £300 for the DEBRA Charity.
With a two tee start, 57 women, all wearing festive hats, took to the 18 hole Short Course at Wycombe Heights, the public pay-and-play centre, in a bid to win the coveted prize of ‘best Christmas hat’ along with many other prizes.
Jann Howard was judged to have won the best hat award, beating off stiff competition from Maureen Stoddart and Sue Clarke. In addition to the main competition there were prizes on offer including nearest the pin, with Liz Keens winning the low handicap prize and Carole Davies the high handicap winner on the day.
The competing ladies enjoyed mince pies and mulled wine, which were served in the half-way house by some of the senior members, before the event was rounded off by lunch and the charity raffle for DEBRA.
Graham Rolland, Wycombe Heights Golf Centre General Manager, said: “I’d like to thank all of the ladies that came out in force to help make this festive event such a success and who helped support and raise money for such a worthwhile charity.”
DEBRA is the national charity that was set up to support individuals and families affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a genetic skin condition that currently has no cure and causes skin to blister and tear at the slightest touch.
Graham Rolland added: “Congratulations to Jann and to all the other winners on the day and I look forward to welcoming them back next year to defend their titles.”
