Golfers from Bushey Hall Golf Club turned out in force on Sunday, October 28, to remember a popular woman who died following a brave battle against breast cancer.
Teresa Jordan was a member of the club for more than 40 years and had captained the club’s ladies’ team.
Her family were also longstanding members of the club.
A statement on a crowdfunding page for Teresa said: “Those of us who knew Teresa will always remember her arriving at West Herts College where she worked, dressed in her golf gear wearing killer high heels. Teresa loved her shoes.
“Despite having dyslexia in 2001, she became a level 2 teacher at West Herts. In 2002, she began working alongside her dear friend Linda Topping running the summer school at West Herts and going out to do external assessments.
“She then became a permanent member of the team at West Herts teaching mature students. Her education continued, and she proudly went to Greenwich University with her Mum and Dad by her side in 2007 to receive a degree.”
Linda Topping added: “Teresa had an active playing handicap of 12. She was a lovely woman who was taken too early, losing her battle to breast cancer while still in her 50s.
“The number of golfers, 91 in total, who played on the day is a glowing testimony to the love and respect people had for Teresa.
“The event was generously sponsored by MyLocalNews and Gold Care Homes, plus many other companies.
“All the extra money raised on the day will be donated to various local charities which include The New Hope Trust in Watford which was one of Teresa’s favourite causes and MacMillan Cancer Care.”
