‘Putting’ on a great day for Alice House
Golfers came together to play in a charity tournament in aid of Alice House Hospice at Eaglescliffe Golf Club on 13 September, raising almost £10,000 for the local charity.
The golf day was co-organised with LFF Glamal, based at Wynyard and sponsored by Mayfield Insurance in Hartlepool. A further 18 companies sponsored a hole each on the course and the day was supported by Barclaycard Commercial who allowed staff members to volunteer in work time and also donated £2,000 in matched funding.
Seventeen teams took part in the event which included a 4 ball competition, raffle, auction, putting contest and other fundraising initiatives. Following the competition, the players were all treated to pie, chips and mushy peas back at the clubhouse.
The auction and raffle included high quality prizes including signed sports memorabilia, golf vouchers for various clubs and much more.
Greg Hildreth of Alice House was there on the day and said “It is wonderful that all of these generous companies and individuals contributed to make the day such a success. I would like to thank Ben Needham at Glamal, Martin Smith at Mayfield, Mark Henderson and Neil Picken from Barclaycard as well as all of the players, hole sponsors and prize donors. Special thanks also go to all at Eaglescliffe Golf Club, especially Jane, Andy, Stacy and Dave who were all very welcoming and helpful. We had a great day and all of the money raised will be used to fund hospice care at Alice House.”
