BARNSLEY Hospice’s annual golf day fundraiser raised more than £10,000 in support of patient care.

A total of 22 team participated in the fundraiser, which took place at Silkstone Golf Club last Friday.

The 18 holes were followed by a pie and peas supper, where the raffle was drawn and the winners were announced.

Legacy Financial secured the top spot, with ‘Bogey Pickers’ obtaining second place, and Seaman Herbert and Co in third.

James McGowan, Legacy Financial’s director, said: “The hospice’s annual golf day is the gift that keeps on giving and it is incredible to see the event go from strength to strength each year.

“Taking home the trophy after five long years of trying is just the icing on the cake.

“It gives me great pride to get involved and raise funds for Barnsley Hospice as both a trustee and a local business owner, and it is a real joy to see what it means to the other participants who attend the fundraiser each year.

“Having had family use the hospice’s services and in my role as a trustee, I have seen first hand the difference Barnsley Hospice make.

“Every pound raised is a vital support to the hospice and I want to thank everyone who contributed to this amazing total.”

Barnsley Hospice’s Simon Atkinson added: “We’re incredibly proud of the record-breaking £10,529 raised at our 30th anniversary charity golf day.

“Thank you to all the players who took part in the event, our sponsors Lifetime, and the amazing local businesses for their continued support.

” Without all of them, we wouldn’t have been able to make the day a roaring success.”
