The lady captain of Chesterfield Golf Club has chosen Bluebell Wood as her charity for 2018-19.
Tracey Warwick is supporting Bluebell Wood with various events at the Walton club this year including a ‘guess the name of the bear’ competition and a ‘win a chocolate explosion’ which raised £100 between them. Tracey has also raised funds by knitting Easter items with her friend and through commissioning two pieces of jewellery, a pendant and a bracelet featuring bluebells, as prizes.
Together with three friends, Tracey recently took part in Bluebell Wood’s Colour Dash, which saw thousands of people walk, wheel and run their way through six colour stations on a five kilometre course at Rother Valley Country Park.
Tracey said: “As lady captain it’s a pleasure to have Bluebell Wood as my chosen charity. I trained as a learning disability nurse 30 years ago and now my daughter is a paediatric nurse on a children’s cancer ward, so we understand what life threatening illnesses are and the impact they have on children and their families.”
Lucy Rathbone, Community Fundraiser for Bluebell Wood in Chesterfield and North Derbyshire, said: “We’re delighted that Tracey has chosen to support us for her captaincy at Chesterfield Golf Club. She is doing a fantastic job of fundraising for the hospice, and also in helping raise awareness of our services in the Derbyshire area.
“Every penny raised will help families across the region to make special memories together, and help us provide the services they need, from music therapy and sibling groups to counselling and end of life treatment and care.”
