The new Golf Captains at Exeter Golf and Country Club are celebrating a great start to their captaincy year during which they will be fund raising for Diabetes UK.



Mike Priest and Shelia Scott were welcomed as the newly elected Golf Captains with the annual drive in and golf dinner dance. These events together raised over 1,300 for their charity of the year, Diabetes UK.



The new Golf Captains chose Diabetes UK because they wanted to raise money for a cause which affects a growing number of people from all walks of life. The charity is the largest organisation in the UK working for people with diabetes, funding research, campaigning and helping people live with the condition.
