David Kirkpatrick, Justina Heddell and David Moseley were the captains of the men’s, women’s, and senior sections at Benton Hall Golf Club in Witham for 12 months, which ended towards the end of last year.
During their year in office, all three captains supported fundraising events for two charities – our very own Rob George Foundation and The Js Charity.
Several raffles, one of which was a year’s free membership of Benton Hall Golf Club, and other events saw the BHFC raise a staggering £20k, split equally for the two local charities.
Long-term RGF supporter Justina said: “We were very lucky that our fundraising events were very well supported by the club and members. For many years, I was a colleague of Rob George’s father, Philip, at law practice Birkett Long. We are enormously proud that we’ve been able to assist what are such important causes.”
Pip George, Rob’s dad and RGF Chairman, added: “We are immensely grateful to Justina and her fellow captains and the members and supporters of Benton Hall Golf Club for choosing the RGF and The Js as their charities of the year. The funds raised make such a positive difference to the support we can provide to young people in Essex and across the UK.”
