Two very well supported local golf days have each raised an impressive amount of money for Rennie Grove Hospice Care.
More than 100 players participated in the Rotary Club of St Albans Verulamium charity golf day that took place at the Verulam Golf Club. The event raised an amazing £5,100 for Rennie Grove.
The golf day is an annual event that has been running for over 10 years and the organisers are keen to encourage more people to join the “regulars” next year. A special thank you goes to Norman Jelley who has been organising this successful event for many years.
Another substantial sum was raised for Rennie Grove at the 14th annual golf day organised by Mike and Sarah Hodge and their colleagues that took place at Aldwickbury Park Golf Club in Harpenden. 25 teams participated on the day raising a whopping £12,000.
And although Mike has handed over responsibility for the organisation of golf days from 2019 and beyond, he will continue in his role of auctioneer and lead the popular end of evening sing-song that rounds off the event so well each year.
