Friday, 29 June 2012
TEE OFF: Eddie Simpson, Robin Stock, Peter Weston and Bob Weston.
GOLFERS helped raise £45,000 for St Clare Hospice, in Loughton.
Fifty teams of golfers from across the country took part in the 18th annual St Clare Hospice Golf Day.
The event, which was held at Stoke by Nayland Golf Club, attracted teams of four who competed in an 18-hole Stableford Team Competition for a number of prizes, which included a 42 inch TV and wireless outdoor speakers, and there was also the chance for golfers to win an Audi or a BMW if they scored a hole in one on the 18th hole.
Leyton Orient chairman Barry Hearn was among those taking part.
The winners on the courses were Ideal Standard Map Constable and Pannell Developments respectively, with Pannell Developments winning the overall prize of The Daniel Robinson Cup.
Tanya Curry, chief executive at St Clare Hospice, said: “It was an amazing day. We are so fortunate to have such great continued support from Weston Homes. something we know is very important to them and they feel passionately about.
“To achieve the amount that was raised in one day, in current times is a huge achievement.”
The event was organised and supported by Home Counties developer Weston Homes.
Bob Weston, chairman and chief executive for Weston Homes, said: “St Clare Hospice is a cause that is very close to our hearts at Weston Homes and we are proud to have been the main event sponsor for more than a decade now.”
