Dave Hopper, our 2016/17 Club Captain was delighted to present a cheque to David Squires of The Chestnut Appeal [Prostate Cancer] for £1090.00 which was raised with the help of Club Members during David’s year in office.
Assisting Dave to lift the cheque were Fred Burch – Club President, Michael Jones – Club Secretary, John Rowe – Club Treasurer & Colin Jeffs – Short Mat Chairman.
Picture shows The Club President, Fred Burch, presenting a letter from The British Heart Foundation and a certificate from the club in thanks for John Roes’ prompt action in giving CPR to Martyn Ellis when he had a heart attack at the club.
John quickly assessed the gravity of the situation and delivered CPR until The Paramedics arrived. They confirmed that without Johns’ prompt action Martyn may not have survived.
