CATTERICK Golf Club welcomed back Lisa Johnston and Adele Miller from BLESMA, The Limbless Veterans Charity last week to help promote the lady captain’s 90-hole golf Challenge.

Lisa, who met Prince Harry and won five medals, including gold, at the Invictus Games in the Netherlands, joined lady captain Sue Marshall, lady vice captain Caroline Whitehead and Adele Miller from Blesma to promote their 90@90 Golf Challenge.

On May 25, Sue and Caroline will attempt to play 90 holes of golf in one day to raise money for Blesma, which is celebrating its 90th year as a charity. The challenge will start just after 5am in the morning and will take several hours and more than 25 miles to complete.

Sue chose Blesma has her nominated charity after treating casualties and seeing the effects of conflict during operational tours in Bosnia and Afghanistan. She served with 212 Field Hospital throughout her career in the reserves and said: “Through my experience on tours, seeing many injuries and how lives were changed, I became aware of Blesma. I chose this charity for my term as lady captain of Catterick Golf Club to give something back for the sacrifices these veterans have made for us.”

Anyone wishing to donate and support the event, which is being sponsored by Simpson Millar Solicitors should contact club secretary Shireen Rudge at or 01748 833268, option four.
