Each year we at Lilleshall Hall Golf Club give our captains’ the opportunity to choose a charity each to support. These chosen charities will then be the focus of our fundraising throughout the year, raising lots of money for worthwhile causes. Below you can read more information about this years captains’ chosen charities, and why they have chosen to support them.
Antibiotic Research UK
Chosen by our Mens captain, Nick Collins’ choice of charity was inspired by his daughter, Emily. Faced with an antibiotic resistance, Emily is just one of thousands of the people that struggle to find treatment. Antibiotic Research UK is worlds first and only charity tackling antibiotic resistance. With only 2 new types of antibiotics introduced into the market in the last 40 years, further research is essential. Failure to act now could mean that in as little as 10-15 years time, many routine medical procedures will be impossible. As new antibiotics become available, it isn’t long before bacteria become resilient, this is why this is a very real and worrying threat.

Lingen Davies Cancer Fund
Our Ladies Captain, Meg Jones, chose this great local charity. Started in 1979, the Lingen Davies Cancer fund has contributed around £18million towards improving cancer services in the local area, improving treatment and care for around 75,000 people in Shropshire, Telford and Mid Wales. The life changing work carried out by this charity has been witnessed first hand by some members of our club and their families. Each year around 12 million people will be diagnosed with cancer. It is the work carried out by charities such as this that give these people a real fighting chance at beating the terrible disease.
