Hospice to hold Malvern golf day

3rd February 2016

St Richard’s Hospice is inviting golfers to join them on the fairway for a fundraising golf day.

The event, to be held at The Worcestershire Golf Club on Thursday 14th April, will be the first to be held by the hospice at the Malvern club and follows the continuing success of its annual event held at the Droitwich Golf Club.

Rachel Jones, Fundraising Manager at St Richard’s Hospice, said; “We are very excited to be holding a new second golf day in Malvern. Our last golf day was so popular we had a reserve list so we thought that an additional day was in order. We would like to invite local golf enthusiasts and businesses to put bring teams along for a great day of golf and networking. As a bit of fun we will be offering prizes for the first three teams, the longest drive and nearest the pin. I would like to thank Malcolm Jeffs, St Richard’s volunteer and my golfing expert advisor, for his help and support.”

The event is being kindly sponsored by Santander. Tickets are £300 for a team of four, and includes a bacon roll with tea or coffee on arrival, a 18 hole round, with tee off times from 11am, a two course dinner with prize giving and charity auction.

Anne-Marie Stride, spokesperson for Worcester’s Santander Corporate and Commercial, said; “Santander Corporate & Commercial is extremely proud to sponsor this event from St Richard’s Hospice. We are keen to support local charities when we can and St Richard’s is well known locally for the wonderful care they provide to patients and their families. We had the opportunity to visit and see first-hand the special care and attention given and the fantastic people that work and volunteer there. The hospice is completely reliant on donations, so it is a pleasure to be involved in the golf day which we know will be a fabulous event, come rain or shine.”

However, we will still do our utmost to make sure that each patient and loved one is given the compassion and dignity they deserve. To help families stay in touch we are encouraging virtual visiting using technology such as video calls and apps. This will be discussed and explained to patients and families on admission and we can help provide access to equipment in the hospice. In addition, the IPU nursing team will liaise with each patient and family to arrange short daily visits from the patient's closest loved one and compassionate visiting, as appropriate.
