Golfers in Redbourn have teed off a host of money-spinning events to raise more than £10,000 for charity in the coming year.
It follows last year’s fundraising success when,Redbourn Golf Club captains, Will Goatcher and Trish Keens, chose Keech Hospice Care to receive the donations of a year-long effort.
Fundraisers on and off the course included the Eric Russel Trophy, Redbourn members’ equivalent to the Ryder Cup, and a Christmas Market – raising more than £1,000 each.
Golf Club general manager Ian McDowell said: “Will and Trish worked hard to drive fundraising throughout their time as captains.
“We’re proud to have such proactive and generous members at Redbourn, and we’re delighted to have raised so much for a local cause.”
The total raised at the Kinsbourne Green Lane club was £10,255 which will go to the charity, supporting children and their families going through terminal illnesses.
Newly crowned captains Andy Crawford and Angela O’Connor have chosen Herts Air Ambulance as the club’s charity for 2016.
