Golfers raise over £500 for maternity unit

Golf club donation to maternity unit


A group of four friends from Atherstone Golf club have donated £515 to the George Eliot Maternity Unit.

Chris Cadman, Lee Bull, Mark and Dwaine Cleaton started fundraising two years ago following family bereavements for their own charity group called CCCB.

A memorial trophy in memory of Eileen Bull, the mother of Chris Cadman who passed away two years ago was the first event organised. Another event was also arranged in memory of Mr Dave Cleaton, the father of Mark and Dwaine.

The group also organised two annual weekend away golf trips where the prize money was donated to the charity. Further funding was also raised through raffles at their annual presentation night.

The events were sponsored by Atherstone Golf Club, The Bull in Witherley and Luke Melling Golf Academy who donated raffle prizes.

Fundraising Co-ordinator, Jean Whittaker MBE said: “The donations are being used to purchase waterproof Fetal Dopplers which are used in a birthing pool to measure a baby’s heartbeat.”
