The golf day...friday 13th ...lucky for some!

Karen Cooper, Manager at MEH, hosted this year's Charity Golf  Day at Lamberhurst Golf Club in Kent. After thanking everyone for organizing, taking part, sponsoring and supporting this event, She presented the prizes to the winning team: 'Tim's Boys',  runners up 'the Pigs' and the losing team (who shall remain anonymous!) She also awarded a prize to the winner of the 'longest drive
' Dino Myers-Lamptey, and 'nearest the pin' - Christopher Ward

the final total raised on the day has yet to be confirmed, but we think it will be just over £1700!


with a generous offering of raffle prizes from local business and individuals as well as a silent auction and an open auction, we raised over £430...

and they're off...Hannah and Karen stood on the first tee taking photo's of each of our 10 teams as they took their opening shots....some of which we couldn't possibly show here!

winning team  won travel bags, and trophies, runners up  received pitch markers and a medal each and the losing team went home with a wooden spoon complete with golf ball.  there were golf balls and trophies for the' nearest the pin' and 'longest drive' winners too.

the tables are laid up for the two- course presentation dinner in the newly refurbished dining room which looked very impressive.

here is David of the 'team captain's' relaxing after his 18 hole round....its thanks to him and his friends at Lamberhurst that we get to hold our event at his club. A very generous and kind group of people who have always been supportive of Mount Ephraim House and its residents.  David's wife, Elizabeth has been a volunteer at MEH for over 4 years.
In all, we had 10 teams competing and 26 local businesses who sponsored our event;  on behalf of the residents at MEH we would like to say a huge thankyou to everyone involved.

Remembering Sylvia

Sylvia White died peacefully at MEH a few days ago and her funeral was held today. We held a memorial tea in the lounge and shared some stories about her time with us. She is remembered as a clever, witty person, who enjoyed her daily dose of fresh air with a cigarette in the garden! she loved art and opera and she had written several childrens books as Sylvia scott white ...

 She will be sadly missed.

Patty's first drum lesson!
