Redbourn Golf Club, a Burhill Golf and Leisure Ltd (BGL) venue situated on the outskirts of St Albans, has enjoyed a brilliant year of fundraising, amassing £10,255 for its chosen Captain’s charity, Keech Hospice Care.
Fundraising was driven by the club Captains, Will Goatcher and Trish Keens, who chose the charity at the beginning of their tenure last year.
A number of events were held throughout the 12 months, both on and off the golf course, including the Eric Russel Trophy, Redbourn members’ equivalent to the Ryder Cup, and a Christmas Market, raising over £1,000 each.
Ian McDowell, General Manager at Redbourn Golf Club, commented on the fundraising efforts, “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.”
Keech Hospice Care supports adults in Luton and South Bedfordshire, and children and their families living in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, and Milton Keynes, all of whom have been diagnosed or have family members diagnosed with terminal and life-limiting illnesses.
Past Ladies’ Captain, Trish Keens, was incredibly grateful for the efforts of her fellow members:
“It’s been an enjoyable year and a huge thanks must go to all the members throughout the club for their support for Keech Hospice Care.
“The year was full of fun and camaraderie, which is what’s great about being a member at Redbourn.”
2016 Captains Andy Crawford and Angela O’Connor have now taken over the reins for fundraising over the next 12 months with all proceeds going to their newly chosen charity, Herts Air Ambulance.
