Captain's message

John Tarn Club Captain 2021

I have been a member of this club for 15 years, serving in a number of roles over the years, for example JLO, committee member and most recently Vice Captain for my friend Alan Pearson, however I am extremely proud to be serving the club this year as its Captain, this is privilege and honour, as is having my friend Dave James as my Vice Captain.

 I am very passionate about Boldon Golf club and i will strive to serve it and its members, I will also strive to help make Boldon golf club an enjoyable experience not only for our members but for visitors too. I will work closely
with our chairman Paul Mackings, secretary manager Steve Watkins, head green keeper Jack Hetherington, and members of  the committee to help me achieve this. 

 My aim is to meet and play a round of golf with not only current members but also new members, i will be looking for spaces on BRS to help me achieve this. 

 I am committed to help improve Boldon Golf club and my first objective is to supply 2 swing nets which I believe will be a welcome addition, I am hoping club members will approach me with their ideas on what may improve Boldon Golf club, ideas that i may be able to achieve this year or start to plan for the future.

 As some people may be aware my chosen charity this year is “ If u care share foundation”  

 “If U Care Share Foundation is a local charity which focuses on suicide prevention, bereavement support and promoting positive mental health in young people.

The charity was founded following the tragic death of Daniel O’Hare in 2005 who took his own life at the age of 19.

Since it was set up the charity has helped over 1700 people across the region who are at risk of suicide and has worked with over 30,000 young people in schools, football clubs and community groups promoting positive mental health and encouraging young people to speak about their emotions.

Our support is bespoke and provides tangible support to individual people at their darkest time, showing that ‘there is always a way’ and there is always someone to reach out to”

 I am also hoping to raise some much needed money (£500) to enable Jack Smiths parents purchase a mobile hoist, Jack is a local young lad, aged 9 years old, he has complex physical health needs and is totally dependent on his parents .. to read Jacks story please follow this http://jacksmith.co.uk

From our Lady Captain Liz Evans 

My lady Captain's charity is
Cancer research this year. I have chosen this charity as I believe that cancer has touched most of aware lives .

We have come a long way in the treatment of cancer all due
to the research that has been done over the years. More people are  in remission and living longer and healthy lives.

I don't think we will ever eradication cancer from our lives but if we can make the survival rate good that is a fabulous achievement. 

I lost my mother in 1960 from breast cancer, I think if she had contracted it today she would have survived. All down to Cancer research UK.

Due to the pandemic charities have
suffered greatly, so I would be great for your support this year.
            

We promise is that we will do our very best to fulfill the role as Captain that you have trusted in us.
