Golfers raise more than £16,000 for hospital children’s unit
Members of Hurlston Hall Golf Club have celebrated raising £16,400 for the Children’s Unit at Ormskirk and District Hospital over the past 12 months.
Will Oldfield, the 2016 Club Captain 2016, said: “It’s a terrific result and I am bursting with pride at the generosity of the club membership.”
The key fundraising activity was held when the club arranged a Longest Day Challenge with 23 golfers playing 72 holes in a day at Hurlston Hall, starting at 4.30am and finishing just before 10pm.
Members and friends supported the event during the day providing refreshments, marshalling and moral support.
Other fundraising activities included a novel “virtual nearest the pin” competition on the 7th hole at Pebble Beach during the Captain’s Away Day in July.
Linda Connolly, Assistant Matron for Paediatrics and Neonates, and Tina Hill, Paediatric Practice Development Nurse, received a cheque on behalf of the hospital at a presentation evening from the club captains, Alison Wood and Will Oldfield.
Linda said: “We were honoured to be chosen as the club’s charity for 2016. Members have worked hard at raising an amazing sum of money and we would like to express our greatest appreciation to everyone. Their fundraising and generosity will be put to good use to benefit the patients who attend the unit.”
