There was an excellent turnout at the annual charity fund-raising coffee morning run by the Ladies’ Section of Whalley Golf Club, despite the damp and dismal weather.

Lady Captain Mrs Anne Prior OBE welcomed everyone and said how delighted she was to see so many members and visitors to the club. After that the clubhouse was a hive of activity as ladies buzzed around the various stalls including a bring and buy, delicious homemade cakes, exquisite handmade cards by Whalley Golf Club member Mrs Agnes Flanagan, and beautiful jewellery and accessories by “Precious of Whalley”.

Coffee, tea and biscuits were served and a tombola and raffle also proved to be a great success, thanks to all who donated prizes. The grand total of £1,250 will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
