Golfers swing into action for hospice

HOSPICE supporters have swung into action to putt money towards a good cause.

The Myton Hospices’ third annual golf day raised £14,000 for the charity.

The event was held at Stoneleigh Deer Park Golf Club and saw 21 teams take to the course in a bid to be crowned champions of the course. The golfers then enjoyed a meal, raffle and auction to boost funds.

The winning trophy went to Team Karen, who were playing in memory of Karen Skelton who died at the Coventry Myton Hospice in March 2017. The team successfully retained their 2017 title.

Karen’s husband Adrian said: “We are delighted to have won once more – although we had a lot of luck which enabled us to defend our title.

“During our family’s extremely difficult time, Myton showed amazing care, respect and professionalism towards Karen and our family. Throughout our 12 days there we were told of the amount of money required to keep Myton running per year, this is when my daughter Elizabeth suggested fundraising and doing our bit.

“We have found some sort of comfort from our fund-raising and to date our total exceeds £13,000.”

And Myton partnerships manager Hannah Morris thanked those who took part.

She said: “A huge thank you to everyone involved in what was another fantastic Myton Golf Day that has raised a truly wonderful amount of money for our hospices.

“Thank you to our sponsors Tustains, to our hosts and to everyone who took part on the day, who donated prizes for our raffle and auction and who played their part in making the event such a success.”
