Brenda Braithwaite (Lady Captain) and the Lady Golfers at Knott End Golf Club have been busy over
the past year in spite of lock down and have raised £2,300 for Rainbow Hub, the Lancashire charity
supporting children with physical and neurological disabilities.
The dedicated group have combined all their skills to produce a publication which included poems,
recipes and and quizzes. They have made face masks and marmalade and taken donations instead of
Christmas cards. Just recently they also added £50 from the sale of a blanket knitted in squares by their
crafty Lady members.
Brenda Braithwaite, Lady Captain, Knott End Golf Club, said, “I chose Rainbow Hub as my charity of the
year because my friend, who works as a volunteer there, told me about it and invited me to go and visit
the centre before lockdown. I was not only impressed by the fantastic facilities in the centre itself but also
by the lovely garden and outdoor areas as well. I will never forget the happy faces of the children I met
and the laughter I heard. It was really mind-blowing and the help and consideration they give to the
parents make Rainbow Hub an unbelievably special place.”
Lyndsay Fahey, Chief Executive, Rainbow Hub, said “Their efforts are amazing and we are so grateful to
Brenda and the ladies. I was able to join their AGM via Zoom to thank them but we are so
looking forward to their visit when the restrictions are lifted so that we can thank them in person.
And it is wonderful that their next Lady Captain has also decided to support us.”
