A very big thank you from Mark

Dear Captains

I am truly humbled and honoured to see the overwhelming amount you have collected for my ‘leaving’ gift.

When my successor Joe, said that he would like to set up a ‘Just Giving’ page should members wanted to donate something to thank me for my time and efforts for the last 12 years, I did not imagine how generous you all would be.

It goes without saying that I have enjoyed my time in office and have had an opportunity to meet so many people, not only from Sussex clubs but from all the counties we play matches against. I have made some great friends and now look forward to turning up at an event being the other side of the registration desk!

I can honestly say the SGC are in a far better shape now than from when I took over in 2009. I know that Joe is faced with a massive task of not only being Captain this year, but he has had to ‘hit the ground running’ talking over as Hon Sec as well. I have assured the committee that I will be happy to advise on any matters if required, and I am sure you will give Joe the same support and understanding you have given me over the years.

Nikki and I will look forward to our weekend away at Rick Stein’s – somewhere we’ve always wanted to go. She too has been a great support and many of you will know she helped me out at a few of our golf days - not to mention fielding phone calls and putting up with me being out the house 12 hours of the day only to get home to update the website and reconcile the day!

Thank you for your generous donations and kind words – It is wholeheartedly appreciated.

Looking forward to seeing many of you during the season.

Kindest regards

Mark Terry

Sussex Golf Captains are noted for their generosity, and you’ve shown this once again with your donations and kind words of thanks. Between you, you raised £2,230 for Mark’s retirement gift. 

This is an outstanding achievement that far exceeds our wildest expectations, and the committee would like to thank all of you for contributing.
