Tee off for hospice care

A hospice is inviting guests to join them on the fairway for a fundraising day of golf.

The St Richard’s Hospice Golf Day, held at The Worcestershire Golf Club in Malvern, will take place on Friday, 27th April.

Now in its third year, the event will see teams play 18 holes of golf before enjoying a two-course dinner as each team finishes.

Ria Simons, Fundraiser at St Richard’s, said: “We’re delighted to be holding our Golf Day once again in the beautiful surroundings of The Worcestershire.

“Last year’s event raised more than £4,000 in support of the free, specialist care provided to patients and their loved ones here at St Richard’s.

“The event is always a great day out – with plenty of healthy competition, as we will be awarding prizes for the first three teams, nearest the pin and longest drive. We hope to see you there!”

John Hyde, of event sponsors Santander, said: “We are very pleased to be supporting St Richard’s by sponsoring this event again this year. They do tremendous work and we are well aware that their need to raise funds is never ending.

“We encourage local businesses to come out in support by entering a team on the day”

To start the day, bacon rolls, teas and coffees will be served – while the day will finish with a silent auction and raffle.

Booking fee for a team of four is £300. To book a team, contact Isobel Mathews on 01905 763963 or email
