An annual Charity Golf Day at Carlyon Bay Golf Club has taken place for the sixth year and raised over £14,000 for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).
Despite the wet weather 32 teams of golfers played on 11th May and remained in high spirits to help raise funds for local children’s charity CHSW which runs Little Harbour children’s hospice at Porthpean.
An extensive selection of prizes were up for grabs during the raffle and auction which followed after the golf. Prizes included a range of signed sporting merchandise as well as dining out vouchers, experience days, rounds of golf at courses around the county and even a painting created by some of the children from Little Harbour.
Ian Warne, Branch Manager at HSBC said
It was a great privilege to once again be part of this annual event that provides much needed funds for this fantastic local charity.
I would like to thank everybody that contributed to another successful day in some way, be it competitor or donator and I look forward to an even bigger, better and drier day next year!”
This popular charity Golf Day has raised over £75,000 for CHSW over the past 6 years. These funds have helped the charity to continue providing care and support for children with life limiting illnesses from across Cornwall and Plymouth at its Little Harbour children’s hospice in St Austell. The hospice provides a great deal of respite and short breaks for whole families, offering specialist sibling support to brothers and sisters as well as nursing care for the sick child and emotional and practical support for parents.
Bernadette Chambers, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at CHSW said “We are delighted that this golf day continues to get such fantastic support not only from those taking part but also from businesses supporting with prize giving items as well as raffle and auction prizes and the sponsorship of holes. I would like to thank Ian Warne for all of the hard work and time that he has put in to organising such a fantastic event. In addition, our thanks must be extended to Paul at Carlyon Bay Golf Club for hosting such a fantastic day and running the auction. This money will allow us to continue supporting families through uncertain times, helping them create wonderful memories in a home from home environment.”
