The annual St Kentigern Hospice Golf Day was held on the 29th September at Abergele Golf Club, raising a fantastic £10,761 for the Hospice.
A massive thank you to Mr Captain Lindsay and everyone at Abergele Golf Club, for letting us use their fantastic facilities and a very special thank you to John Percy Hughes, who worked tirelessly to make the day such a huge success.
Also, thank you to everyone who helped ensure the day ran so smoothly, the main sponsors and all the businesses/individuals who kindly sponsored tees and donated raffle and auction prizes and the teams who entered.
Over 30 teams took part and thankfully, after storm Agnes a few days before, the weather was kind with the sun shining throughout the day. The Hospice looks forward to once again working with our friends from the Golf Club in 2024. A very special relationship which raises vital funds for St Kentigern. Next year’s event will take place on the 13th September 2024.
