Cash boost for Welwyn Garden City golf club
THE chosen charities of men’s and ladies captains at Brocket Hall Golf Club had a welcome boost recently.
Lakeside School in Welwyn Garden City for pupils with severe learning difficulties, and CHIPS, a local charity run by volunteer parents, offering play schemes for children with special needs, were picked by Len Montague and Jennie Lewis Puttick when they took over their roles.
Now each have received a �2,000 cheque from Placid Gonzales, a senior partner of St James’ Wealth Management, who is also a member of Brocket Hall, near Lemsford.
“We chose the charities we did, as we wanted to cover the whole spectrum of a child’s life,” explained lady captain Jennie Lewis Puttick. “While we hope to provide funds for a major project at Lakeside School, extending every aspect of the school building, we also wanted to support CHIPS, helping to fund activities and fun days for children outside of school time.”
CHIPS runs Saturday clubs across east Herts during school term time, and play schemes during the holidays.

Mr Gonzales, who was a founding partner of St. James’s when it began in 1992, said: “St James’s Wealth Management is very pleased to support such very needy local charities. It was a delight to present each of the charities with the cheques.”
