A glorious day of golf has raised £2,400 for St Barnabas House hospice.
The event at Hill Barn Golf Course in Worthing on the 10th June was hosted jointly by Computer & Network Consultants (CNC) and Worthing-based solicitors, Bennett Griffin.
Many of their customers and business partners joined them to raise much-needed funds for a hospice which has cared for thousands of people since it first opened in 1973.
There was a golfing competition using Stableford scoring, awarding points according to the number of strokes taken at each hole. There were also prizes for a number of other feats including the longest and straightest drives and the best golfing effort at the Charity Challenge Hole.
St Barnabas House’s Community Fundraising Manager, Wendy Bardsley commented: “St Barnabas is truly overwhelmed by the generous support of CNC, Bennett Griffin and all their guests.
“We’ve been providing hospice care for over 40 years and we can only help our patients and their families with the kindness and generosity of the community who pay for three out of every four patients we care for. Over the years we have helped more than 38,000 patients so this type of fundraising is very important to us. A big thank you from all of us at St Barnabas.”
Gary Jowett from CNC said: “It was a lovely sunny day for golf and the barbecue afterwards. We’d like to thank everyone who joined us to help support such a worthy cause. It’s our second charity golf day. Last year we raised £1,600 for the hospice, so let’s hope we can raise an even bigger total next year.”
St Barnabas provides specialist palliative care services to adults with advanced progressive life-limiting illnesses within the hospice and in the comfort of patients’ own homes throughout Worthing, Adur, Arun and Henfield.
