We’re proud to announce our final fundraising figure for our charity golf day on 18th July – Drumroll please... We raised an INCREDIBLE £14,600 in aid of the Hospice!

Taking place at Letchworth Golf Club, teams of 4 took part in a day of fun and games to help us raise vital funds for patient care in our local community. But this wasn’t just any round of golf; players took part in a special ‘speed hole’ where teams worked together in a relay to see how quickly they could get the ball in the hole, as well as on-course fines and in-team competitions.

We’d like to thank each and every person who helped make this event such a fun and successful day. Special thanks go to Letchworth Golf Club and Club Captain Jim Abraham whose passion and support on the day were outstanding. Thanks also to First Response Fire Safety, Hitchin Camera Club, everyone who donated to and supported the event and finally to our 80 players!

And of course, congratulations to the winning team, made up of players Neil Swinburne, Will Power, Tony Tuffin and Murray Sale.

Jim Abraham, Club Captain at Letchworth Golf Club commented:

"It was truly an honour to host the recent Garden House Hospice Care charity golf day at Letchworth Golf Club. With almost £15,000 raised it was a very successful day with 80 players enjoying the golf, raising lots of money and having plenty of fun.

“The golf club have a strong and long standing relationship with the Hospice and I've been happy to support this relationship throughout 2018. Many thanks to Danni and all the Hospice staff for their dedication and hard work for a wonderful organization."

Lisa Seccombe, Head of Marketing, Fundraising and Communications at GHHC commented:

“We all had a great day and were made to feel so welcome by Kevin, Jim, Gareth and the Letchworth Golf Centre team and members. Everyone couldn’t do enough to make our charity golf day go so well, and I cannot express my thanks enough from myself, my team and our golf supporters for giving us such a great friendly day of golf, enabling us to raise nearly £15,000. We hope to come back next year!”
