On 18th February 2020, LDUK Chair Natasha Metcalf was invited to the Rothley Park Golf Club Ladies Charity Lunch hosted by Lady Captain, Jenny Piecha, whose daughter Samantha suffers from Lyme disease. Jenny and the club have very kindly chosen to support Lyme Disease UK this year.

After a delicious lunch, Natasha gave a talk to the lady members of the club, touching on her own personal story as well as general information about the disease, including symptoms of Lyme, issues with current testing and tick bite prevention techniques.
The event was a huge success and lots of interesting questions were asked after the talk. The lovely Rothley Park Golf Club ladies came up with some wonderful ideas on how to raise awareness of Lyme disease and shared their plans for upcoming fundraisers to support the charity. A huge thank you to Jenny and Rothley Park Golf Club for choosing to support Lyme Disease UK and for extending such a warm welcome to us! Stay tuned for information on fundraising events from the club this year!
