Pontefract Sports & Education Foundation Trustee Rob Jepson in mid ‘thank you speech’. Rob is pictured holding the presentation cheque for £8,500 which was raised by Pontefract and District Golf Club via their Captain’s Charities of the Year in 2016. The Foundation and the local Prince of Wales Hospice each received the same amount. The Captains – Dr Martin Johnson and Ruth Storey – were thanked for not only selecting the Foundation to be a beneficiary of their year but also for their dedication and hard work to raise the money.
Steve Evans (Foundation CEO), Ruth Storey (Ladies captain), Dr Martin Johnson (Men’s captain) and Andrew Johnson (co-organiser) pictured here will be taking part in a sponsored walk on Sunday July 24th 2016. The walk is being organised by Pontefract Golf club and proceeds are to be split between the local hospice and the Foundation. The aim is to walk around every racecourse in Yorkshire in one day, including Redcar, York and Catterick.
