Meryl Wilson nee Gillespie (Stanfield Leaver 1967) – Alzheimer’s Society.
MAGNIFICENT SUM RAISED FOR ALZHEIMER’S
The 2015 Lady Captain of West Lancashire Golf Club, Meryl Wilson, presented a cheque for £3,065.59 to Alzheimer’s Society.
Joanne Dobbie, Community Fundraiser for Merseyside, Cheshire and the Isle of Man said, “We are extremely grateful to former Lady Captain, Meryl and the members of West Lancashire Golf Club for all the time and energy they put into raising funds for Alzheimer’s Society. As a charity, we rely on the generosity of our supporters to ensure that people affected by dementia across the local area live well with dementia today and fund research to find a cure for tomorrow”.
The money was raised through a Race Night and Charity Dinner organised at the Club. Meryl said “This charity is very close to my heart. My mother, Wendy Gillespie, was Lady Captain of West Lancashire in 1961 and suffered from Alzheimer’s for many years before passing away last year. I have been overwhelmed by the support from the members and friends, which enabled me to raise much needed funds”.
