Callum Mills

Lovely letter to Eric Malkin from Tracey Sanders, mum to Callum.

 

Hi Eric my names Tracy sanders and I’m mum to Callum Mills who you have so kindly agreed to help fund a new wheelchair for. Callum is now 12 and has outgrown the chair he has now as you can see from the photos ive sent. So we are in quite a pickle to get him a new chair so he can go out and about comfortably. Geoff has helped us figure out the chair that will suit Callum and aslo be lightweight enough for me to manage with my back problems. He will be measuring Callum up hopefully next week so we can get the ball rolling. Callum had meningitis at 10 days old which left him with brain damage, learning difficulties, cerebral palsy in his legs (diaplegic) and also severely visually impaired. Callum wears leg braces daily and he suffers many blisters from this. Life is tough on him in many ways but having a great wheelchair not only makes things a bit easier but gives him independence and a want to go further afield then being isolated at home. We as a family can not thank you enough for offering to support us in getting this chair for him, it means so much to all of us.

Yours gratefully Tracy

 

Well Done Boston GC. Thank you

Email from Roger at Bostin GC

 

Hi Roger/ Jackie,

I felt very proud and humbled to present my second wheelchair yesterday.

The presentation was to a very courageous and lovely 11-year-old boy, who is paralysed from the chest down after getting a virus when he was 2 and a half years old.

He was so excited to receive the wheelchair/bike. He is a very happy boy, well supported by his Mum and Grandparents. He is doing very well with his swimming being faster than some of his able-bodied friends. The chair will give him so much independence, he’s looking forward to going on bike rides with his friends.

I have attached some photos. Many thanks to the “The Peter Alliss Masters” and you both for your support in allowing me to provide these chairs as my Golf Club Captains Charity over the last 2 years

Best regards Colin 

 

 

 

 

Congratulations South Kyme GC

From Paula Young, South Kyme Golf Club

Hello Jackie

I finally saw the end result of my two year captaincy, when I raised over £3,000 in the end. The family, who live very close by in Ruskington, were so appreciative and it was a lovely afternoon getting to know them. Both girls were able to benefit from the great work that Peter started all those years ago.  Roger was there to receive the cheque too, which was nice. I am so pleased I chose the Masters, as it meant we could see exactly where the money went and to see the joy from the family was humbling and emotional.

I hope this photo is put onto the South Kyme website for all to see.

Hope to see you again at the events later this year.

Many thanks,

Paula Young

Lady Captain 2020/2022 at South Kyme, Lincolnshire

PS I am the partner of Colin Latham, who managed to get two chairs during his same two years as Captain at Boston GC.

Cheshire Society Donate Two Chairs

A Cheshire golf society of just 40 active members – Frodsham & Helsby Golf Society – managed to raise enough funds in one season for TWO powered wheelchairs. 2016 Captain Phil Davies chose the Peter Alliss Masters as his Captain’s Charity in the hope of raising funds that would go some way towards the £3,000 needed to buy a powered wheelchair. However, such was the generosity and resourcefulness of the society’s members, a magnificent £5,300 was raised.
With a top-up from the Charity’s central funds to take the figure up to £6,000, the Society was able to present chairs to two deserving youngsters at its final event of the year, its Christmas event at Helsby Golf Club. The children receiving the chairs were Alainah Hussain, aged 16 from Nelson in Lancashire and Dylan Kelsall, aged 14 from Stoke-on-Trent. They are pictured above with Captain Phil (seated) and behind them (l-to-r) Kieran McCabe (FHGS Secretary) , Zahida Yunis (Alainah’s Mum), Colin Moss (FHGS Treasurer), Ray Feldwick (PAM Treasurer), Warren Kelsall (Dylan’s Dad), Steve Cunniffe (Helsby GC Captain), Jim Potter (Helsby GC President) and Alex Walters (FHGS Captain Elect).

As Phil explains: “The way the members took on this challenge was amazing. They came up with all sorts of ideas for raising funds as part of our monthly golfing get togethers. Ideas included auctions of complimentary rounds of golf, sweeps, swear boxes and individual donations. I’m really proud of what everyone’s achieved and it made it all worthwhile when we saw those two youngsters receiving their new chairs just before Christmas.” 

If you want more details of just how the society raised the money, Phil is happy for you to email him at PJDsolutions@aol.com.
