We’re delighted and grateful that our charity golf day in Buxton has raised over £5,100 for local hospice services.

Ninety golfers came together on Friday 11th June for the event at Buxton and High Peak Golf Club, and enjoyed the fine weather on their round.

There were some great prizes for the winners including vouchers and golfing equipment very kindly donated by local businesses.

A bottle tombola with wines, beers and spirits proved popular with players too, helping to boost the event’s fundraising total for local care.

The money raised will fund Blythe House and Helen’s Trust care including the 24/7 Hospice at Home service which enables patients who’re at the end of their life to stay in the comfortable surroundings of their own home.

Becca Gregory, fundraising and events coordinator, commented: ‘I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made the golf day such a success; participants, volunteers who supported the event, and Buxton and High Peak Golf Club for once again playing host, and being so accommodating.

‘My sincere thanks to local companies who supported the event with donations of prizes or sponsorship, including Buxton Woodworks, DRiV International,  Home Instead care, New Mills Golf Club and Pak-Pro Ltd. I am also very grateful to local shops and hospice supporters who donated bottles for the tombola.’
