Two charity golf days, held in aid of the Hospice recently have raised in excess of £51,000!
annual golf day held by Cala Homes in aid of the Hospice took place in Dyrham Park and Country Club in Barnet on Thursday 6th
September. Organised by Tracey Richardson and Darren Dockerill from the construction company, the day raised £21,000.
Robin Webb, Isabel Hospice CEO said “I was overwhelmed to be presented with a cheque for £21,000 by Darren Dockerill and Tracey Richardson of Cala Homes following their golf day. This astonishing sum takes the total raised by Cala Homes over the last 4 years to £51,000 which is simply amazing. At Isabel Hospice all the care and support we provide is free – last year we supported 1,555 people plus their loved ones and this was only possible because of the generosity and fundraising efforts of Cala Homes, hundreds of other events and thousands of generous supporters.
“We know there are hundreds more people who could benefit from the care we provide and we are working with GPs, local hospitals and other healthcare professionals to ensure people are referred to us earlier, so we can help them live as well as possible. It was great to receive the cheque from Darren and Tracey at our Living Well hub in Welwyn Garden City where we provide a range of activities including exercise classes, singing groups, fatigue and breathlessness courses, complementary therapy and counselling sessions.”
October, a golf day organised by the Isabel Hospice Events team led by Natasha Hind and Chairman of Isabel Trustees Rod Leggetter raised £30,000. Held at Brocket Hall Golf Club in Lemsford, the day, which was sponsored by Lexus Hatfield saw 18 teams take part, with the winning team being Joe Colletti. They received a magnificent trophy which will be passed on to a new team at the next Brocket Hall Golf Day on 16th
Rod Leggetter said “We were delighted with the support we received to enable us to reach this record breaking total for a Hospice golf day. £30,000 could cover the running costs of our Hospice at Home service for 6 weeks which means more people are able to be supported and to die at home if that is their wish. I’d like to thank all our sponsors on the day, including Lexus Hatfield.”
