Lyme Regis Golf Club held a charity day in aid of this year’s charities SUDEP Action and the Muir Maxwell Trust, which are part of the fight against sudden death syndrome due to epilepsy, writes Richard Jackman.
SUDEP is mainly research and support for bereaved families while Muir Maxwell, a smaller organisation, distributes tablet sized alarm pads to go under a child’s mattress which is activated in the parent’s bedroom if it detects abnormal movement.
Jane Hanna OBE, one of the founder members of SUDEP was there to present the prizes and thank everyone for participating and in excess of £1,600 on the day.
In the ladies stableford Rosemary Shepherd’s 36 points was the best score of the day and ensured her the Division One title. Based on a steady front and back nine, Rosemary secured her victory at the expense of Jean Jolley, 33, and Ros Cox, 32. The ever-improving Amy Mudford secured Division Two with 32 points, scoring exceptionally well on some holes, from Mary Minter 31, and Lesley Jelleyman, 29. There were some exciting close scores in the junior medal, but it was Lewis Gibbons who won with a solid nett 73 followed closely by Dominic Beardwood and Ben Prosser, both nett 74, but Dominic came second on countback.
