Special Charity Ladies' Tournament

2013-08-22

White Rose Polo Club honours a special Lady

White Rose Polo Club is holding a special Ladies’ Day tournament on Sunday 25th August in memory of Karen Nuttall, a wonderful young lady; polo fanatic and player who recently passed away age 42 after a brave battle with Cancer.

The Yorkshire Polo fraternity has been stunned by the death of fellow player Karen Nuttall who lost her courageous battle against cancer recently. Karen was a local lady, who was well respected and loved in the world of Polo particularly in her home county. It is in her memory that White Rose Polo Club is dedicating its annual Ladies’ Day tournament; with all profits going to St Andrews Hospice in Grimsby, where Karen spent her last days.

Guests will be greeted with champagne and strawberries upon arrival and spend the day watching exceptional Polo whilst also perusing the many local trade stands.

Support from local businesses has been overwhelming, with hugely generous raffle prizes donated from Barbour, Andrew & Rogers Opticians, Mint Polo and Masons Gin to name but a very few.

Entry: £10 per ticket inc  a glass of champagne and a draw to win a Polo lesson and a copy of Living North Magazine
