Marple Golf Club Ladies Section has donated £1,550 to Epilepsy Research. 

The 2017 ladies captain Anne Porter presented a cheque to Epilepsy Research, her nominated charity. The money was raised with a variety of events during Anne's year as captain and is a charity very close to Anne and her family.

The Ladies Section at the golf club donate over £2,000 to various charities every year. One of the beneficiaries is always the Beechwood Cancer Care Centre in Stockport.

This year the Ladies Captain, Kay Gould-Martin, has nominated as her main charity The New Horizons Canal Boat, which provides day trips for the disabled from their mooring in Marple.
