In each of our games throughout the week, we were given the warmest of welcomes from our hosts. As if we weren’t fed well enough at the hotel, we enjoyed the Cornish Pasties, Cornish Cream teas and buffets on offer before and during the games. At Topsham we enjoyed a meal after the game before our drive home.
The Presidents’ charities: Ailsa – Macmillan Cancer Care; David – Prostate Cancer UK; benefitted during the week from various donations both on and off the green. The total amount raised was £358.80. Ailsa & David would like to thank all for their generous contributions and donations.
In a week when summer weather finally arrived, Ailsa & David would like to thank everyone who came on tour and made it such an enjoyable week.
