What a fore-midable day!

Friday May 13 proved lucky for Barnsley Hospice, as an annual golf day raised £7,000 to fund patient care.

Twenty-two teams played in the Golf Day, held at Silkstone Golf Club, and Barnsley FC legend Barry Murphy put in an appearance to support the day.

The teams competed for the winner’s trophy, and ‘Kitch’s Klowns’ were crowned champions at the pie and peas supper that followed the 18 holes.

Isabel Hartland, interim director of finance and income generation at Barnsley Hospice, was delighted with the amount raised: “Our Golf Day has been going for over 20 years, and it is a firm favourite with staff and supporters.

“As a charity, we rely on events such as our golf day to raise almost £2 million each year. This money supports our aim of ensuring palliative and end-of-life care is available for adults across Barnsley.

“Our thanks go to everyone who attended on the day, the event sponsors and Silkstone Golf Club.”

The event was sponsored by Dodworth-based company, Lifetime. Lifetime director William Bottomley said: “It was another fantastic day, superbly organised, and enjoyed by everyone. Lifetime is proud to have such a close relationship with the hospice and we are delighted to play our part in helping them raise funds.”

Minx Consulting supported the event by sponsoring refreshment stations and PIB Insurance, Seaman Herbert & Co, Legacy Financial, Legacy Estate Planning, GMB Union, Glass Onion and Hargreaves contributed to the costs of the day as hole sponsors.
