GOLF CLUB RAISE OVER £12K FOR HOSPICE

BERKHAMSTED GOLF CLUB captain David Bird presented the town’s Hospice of St Francis with a spectacular donation of over £12,500.

The outgoing captain completed a tradition at Berkhamsted, handing over the sizeable charity cheque to the charity’s head of community, Lucy Hume.

Commenting on the occasion, Bird said: “Everyone here is simply very proud to have helped raise such a meaningful sum of money. I think it is large enough to make a difference. The club has enjoyed a long relationship with the wonderful people at the hospice, and my wife also works there as a volunteer. It felt like the natural choice.”

Several charity events contributed to the total, with a charity auction raising £5,000.

Hume said the charity was “blown away” by the donation and thanked the club for their incredible efforts.

“It was absolutely amazing and we are incredibly grateful to David and the members at Berkhamsted Golf Club – especially in our 40th Anniversary year,” said Hume. “The golf club and the Hospice have worked together in the community for decades, but this is truly exceptional.”
