Generous donation from Long Ashton Golf Club

14 March 2019 chsw Fundraising

Richard Wood chose a number of charities to benefit during his 2018 Captaincy at Long Ashton Golf Club. One of those was Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).


Along with his professional golfer son, Chris Wood, Richard visited CHSW’s Charlton Farm to hand over a cheque for £8,000.

Richard explains why he chose CHSW to be a beneficiary charity, “CHSW is only 5 minutes from our home and from the golf club so it was a natural choice. My son, Chris Wood, has been supporting the cause for many years too.”

The funds were raised last summer during a special Golf Day in July where Chris and two of his European Tour professionals, Dave Horsey and Jamie Donaldson, came and played at Long Ashton. The event was hosted by Geoff Twentyman.

Kylie Gallagher, CHSW Community Fundraiser said, “We are absolutely delighted that Richard chose to support CHSW. Without such fundraising in the community we would not be able to offer respite, palliative, end-of-life and bereavement care to local families. We'd like to thank everyone who supported the event and donated to all the good causes.”
