The 10th annual Lady Taverners’ Golf Day drew 29 teams to Kenwick Park GC.

With two scores to count at each hole and all four on the par three 12th, Grimsby team Heroes and Zeros – Roger Henton, Mike Giles, Alan Douglas and Brian Capindale – won with an excellent 94 points.

The Eastgate Occasionals (Oliver Cookson, Jasper Jarrett, Mark Ryder and Rob Brown) came second with 93, and the Eurovision Logistics – Harold Kaye, D. Ellison, Josh Baines and Liam James – scored 92 to take third place.

The Liddies (Simon and Di Lidgard, Mike Walker and Chris Davies) were fourth with 90, and the final fifth prize went to the Wild Ireland team of Steve and Cindy Ireland playing with Trevor and Judy Wild (89).

Nearest-the-pin winners were Di Lidgard at the second hole, Simon Hartley at the eighth, Ann Walker at the 12th, and Roger McCracken at the 17th.

The highlight of the evening saw Barbara Dickson, honorary president of the Lincolnshire branch of the Lady Taverners, present a cheque for £25,000 to the Lincolnshire Wolds Federation.

The grant is to be used to provide a new sensory room at St Bernard’s School, in Louth, to benefit students, aged two to 19, with moderate to severe and profound learning difficulties and complex needs.

The Lady Taverners is part of the Lord’s Taverners, the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity, and is dedicated to giving young people a sporting chance.

Through the golf day, the Lady Taverners, supported by their generous sponsors Bluefin Insurance Group and Westgate Honda, have raised an £40,000.
