After several ideas were discussed, it was decided to hold a Madge Sparkes Putter competition each year with the proceeds to go to a cancer fund chosen by the current Lady Captain.
Several silver spoons were also returned and have been presented to past winners as mementos.
The Madge Sparkes Putter was destroyed in the fire of 2009 and replaced with a cup.
