It was a real delight and privilege to be present at our outgoing 2023 Seniors Captain, Steve Thompson's, presentation of an Axe Cliff GC cheque for £409 to representatives of the wonderful charity "Guide Dogs for the Blind" in our Clubhouse, writes Dave Bruce.

The cheque was presented to Lena Welch, who was recently taken up the volunteer position of Group Co-ordinator for the East Devon Fundraising Group for the Charity based at Sidmouth. She was accompanied by well-known local man Geoff Chapple, who is a ‘Puppy Raiser’ volunteer for the organisation.

Lena is a wonderful young lady and has been sight impaired since birth. Lena thanked Steve and the Club for the much-needed funds, as it can cost £50,000 to fully raise and train a Guide Dog. We thank Lena and Geoff for the excellent work that they both do, they are shining lights for the Association:
