THE club held their annual Presentation Evening recently at the Bedale Golf Club. Fourteen different awards were presented by special guest Shelli Gordon. Shelli is from Stokesley and recently completed the Montane Spine Race over 268 miles of the Pennine Way. She described the event to incredulous listeners who were in awe as to her achievement. Through family circumstances she is raising funds for the charity CALM which is looking into male suicide prevention. The Bedale club have promised to support this charity at their Car Boot day in April.

The club's President, Brian Hall, was also a guest. He generously donated a trophy and was happy to present this, which is voted for by all members. This is to someone who, in the opinion of the voter, has made the most significant contribution during the year.
