Lady Captain Marks Year In Office With £31,528 Donation To Local Hospice

Megan Bibby has just completed her year as Lady Captain of West Hove Golf Club 2018/19 with St Barnabas House as her charity of the year.

Megan, who has had a phenomenal year in office, announced her fundraising total of £31,528.14 to fellow golfers at the Ladies annual general meeting recently.

Supported by her partner Howard, friends and the Ladies Section, Megan has been tireless in her fundraising and has held many successful events throughout the year including a bake-off, clothes sale, bridge evening, tea party and golf days. 

As well as hosting events, Megan has encouraged club members, friends and family to gather items to donate to St Barnabas House charity shops. In total, Megan has collected an astonishing 402 bags of clothes, accessories and other items, worth over £14,500!

Megan said, “St Barnabas House has touched the hearts of many West Hove Golf Club members, looking after their close friends and family by providing the best end of life care possible. Being Lady Captain of West Hove Golf Club gave me the opportunity to repay St Barnabas by selecting it as my chosen charity.

“I would like to thank all the members of West Hove, especially the Ladies Section, my family, friends and golfing and bridge colleagues outside West Hove for all their help and support. I was delighted with the final sum we managed to raise together, and I hope that it will help many more families in the future.”

Mary Bye, Community Fundraiser for St Barnabas House, said, “We are absolutely thrilled and so grateful to Megan for her wonderful fundraising throughout the year.  The money raised will make a huge difference and will go directly to caring for local patients and their families”.
