A series of annual golf days organised by a St Albans business have raised over £15,000 for a centre supporting children with cerebral palsy.
St Albans brothers Adam and Daniel Ginder, of M K Ginder and Son funeral directors, first organised their charity day on the course in memory of their father Martyn, who passed away in 2011.
Since then the brothers have donated money raised from the days for their family friend, Freddie Goodchild, aged 11, who needs funding to be able to attend The PACE centre in Aylesbury.
The past two golf days, which ended with an evening of dinner, music and a charity raffle, have seen over 100 competitors take part and this year’s event has already been planned for Friday, September 9, at Aldwickbury Park Golf Club in Harpenden.
Daniel said: “It is simply amazing to see so many people honouring the life of our Dad, and helping us keep his mantle of supporting local charities and causes.”

In a statement Freddie’s family said: “In spite of busy lives, running a business and a young family of their own, Daniel and Adam have been relentless in their commitment to and support of Freddie.
“We can never thank them enough for their determined and absolute belief in him and his abilities and for helping us to give him the dignity and life he deserves.”
