Putting in charity efforts for Mablethorpe British Legion

Putting in their efforts on Saturday was WO-2 Alan Brooks and Staff Sergeant Pete Rogers who took part in the annual charity golf challenge at Woodthorpe, running around the course doing the full 18 holes as quickly as possible.

This year the duo completed the course in one hour, one minute and 55 seconds, falling just short of their record. Alan and Peter also had some musical support on the way round thanks to the Mablethorpe Air Training Corps who were playing the drums.

Overall, the charity golf challenge raised £443.78.

During the day, Glenda Fern held a cake stall and tombola and an event in the evening at Woody’s Bar which included entertainment.

Glenda raised £612.36 through those events.

Also going on in Mablethorpe were collections at the Co-op as well as bag packing and another collection at Lidl, which raised a further £2,123.18.

This brought the final fund
raising total over the weekend to a staggering £3,170 for the Mablethorpe Royal British Legions Poppy Appeal, with more money still coming in.

Poppy Appeal organiser Mark Reddin commented: “We cannot thank Alan, Pete and Glenda enough for their amazing fund raising efforts.

“We would also like to thank the Co-operative and Lidl who kindly allowed us to collect in store over the weekend in support of Armed Forces Day and we thank the community of Mablethorpe and the surrounding areas for their continued support to the charity.”
