BROADWAY Golf Club’s outgoing captains Jim Hutchison and Brenda Corfield ended their year of office in style as they prepared a final tally on their charity funds collected during 2017.
Jim had chosen to support the charity Bloodwise, which does fabulous work in researching cures for all blood cancers.
Bloodwise is the UK’s largest blood cancer research charity and funds world-class research into all types of blood cancer. It also supports anyone worried about blood cancer with expert information and advice.
Claire Horrex is the regional manager of the South West area and is pictured with Jim receiving the cheque for a tremendous £2,830 thanks to the generosity of all of Broadway’s members.
Added to that amount is a further £525 which was Jim’s share of the money raised singularly by Broadway member Bill Cook earlier in the year for both captains, making his grand total up to £3,355.
Brenda was delighted to announce that, through the kind donations and hard work of Broadway’s lady members and visitors combined with Bill Cook’s sterling fund-raising efforts, she had raised a tremendous £3168.88 for her chosen charity St Richard’s Hospice.
Brenda had been passionate about choosing the hospice because of the care it gives to patients and families in Worcestershire who are living with life-limiting illnesses – helping them towards the best quality of life possible.
Brenda visited St Richard’s to hand over the cheque and is photographed with hospice fund-raiser Alice Brunt in the lovely gardens at the hospice.
Members’ fund-raising efforts for 2018 will focus on supporting club captain Bernard Donoghue and ladies’ captain Maggie McDivitt and their respective charities Sue Ryder and Cobalt.
