Saturday, June 8, 2024

A golf club charity day has raised thousands of pounds for a local hospice charity.

Knighton Heath Golf Club organised and hosted the recent golf day to support Forest Holme Hospice based in Poole raising £6,182.

Starting at 8.30am, a total of 34 teams hit the course for a day packed with fun and excitement, culminating with a 19th hole celebration featuring prize giving, auctions, and a raffle. 

Knighton Heath’s General Manager, Kevin Eden, and Functions & Events Coordinator, Denise Bennett, then both visited the hospice, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, to present a cheque to Corporate and Community Fundraiser, Kirsty Perks, which will be put towards enhancing Forest Holme’s provision of palliative and end-of life-care and support across Poole, Wimborne and the Isle of Purbeck.

Kirsty, said, “We want to say a huge thanks to Sean Keen, Club Captain, and Grace Burke, Ladies Club Captain, for choosing Forest Holme as their charity, as well as to the sponsors, players, and the incredible staff and volunteers whose hard work made this fantastic donation possible. Knighton Heath Golf Club are already in the planning stages for next year’s event.”
