Golf club donates £4,000 to hospice

A county golf club has donated more than £4,000 to a hospice after taking on a year’s worth of fundraising activities.

The ladies’ section of The Worcestershire Golf Club raised a total of £4,015 for St Richard’s Hospice during 2019, donating the sum just before Christmas.

Fundraising activities included golfing competitions, lunches, collecting loose change, a Christmas cake raffle, cake sale and more.

Julia Radley, Lady Captain of the Worcestershire Golf Club from October 2018 to October 2019, said: “I want to thank the ladies of Worcestershire Golf Club for supporting this worthwhile cause.

“I feel very proud – I am just delighted to be able to make our donation.”

The donation will help St Richard’s continue to fund its care to patients with serious, progressive illnesses, their loved ones and bereaved people.

Rachel Jones, fundraising manager at St Richard’s Hospice, said: “We are very grateful to the ladies of Worcestershire Golf Club for raising money in support of our care.

“They have raised a terrific amount which will help us continue to offer free physical, emotional and spiritual support to people when they need us most.”
