MORPETH Golf Club’s previous lady captain did an excellent fund-raising drive for a regional charity.

Audrey Pattison’s nominated good cause for her year in the role, which ran from November 2011 to November 2012, was St Oswald’s Hospice.

She recently handed over a cheque for £2,146.50, which will go to its children’s unit, after collecting money from various well-supported activities such as knitting, baking, sewing and raffles.

Part of this total (£940) was raised from a special event featuring her son, Richard. He did an audio-visual presentation about his mountain climbing over the last decade, including his successful expeditions to Mount Everest and Ama Dablam in the Himalayan region.
