And Fitch chose to split the sum between two very worthy causes, handing over cheques for £11,350 to Breast Cancer Now and Corbets Tey Special Needs School at a special presentation.
"I chose these charities as they are both in my thoughts," said Fitch, who has been a member at the club for 35 years.
"Breast cancer has affected my family this year and having visited Corbets Tey local school many times I know what a fantastic job the staff do there.
"I know this money will make a difference to better people's lives. I cannot thank the members enough."
