Letchworth Golf Club is very much part of the community and is delighted to support local charities and organisations to raise funds for so many worthwhile causes. Many of the partnerships have developed over a number of years, and the work will continue into 2021 and beyond.
The Garden House Hospice has been a pillar of our community for over thirty years; a place of care, comfort and compassion for patients and families facing the realities of life-limiting illness. The statistics are compelling – open 365 days, on a 24/7 basis; 640 patients a year, 435 of whom have had a cancer diagnosis; 3,500 family members supported with 900 counselling sessions – the Hospice is an integral part of the life of our community. Sadly, each year several families within our Golf Club are touched by the quality of our Hospice; its reputation speaks for itself.
But such quality and care is not cost-free. It takes £5.7M a year to run the Hospice; the NHS provides around 33% of that sum. The community, through its support of the Hospice’s shops, through legacies and through community fundraising activities provides the rest. Garden House Hospice was started by the community, it serves the community and it is sustained by the community. And Letchworth Golf Club, each year, plays its part. In 2019-20 LGC members raised over £30,000 to support the Hospice and we will continue to support as much as we can going forwards.
The charity Riding for Disabled (RDA) provides life enhancing therapies, through the riding of horses, for children and adults with physical and learning disabilities. It relies entirely on voluntary contributions. The Letchworth Diggers, a golfing society of Letchworth Golf Club members, hosts an annual charity day that raises the money necessary for the viability of the Stevenage branch of the RDA. In the past 30 years it has raised over £300,000
Letchworth Golf Club will be hosting the 2nd annual golf day on behalf of The Hertfordshire MS Therapy Centre on Friday 17th September 2021.
The day starts with a warm welcome and a hearty breakfast before the players take on our Academy par 3 course ahead of their main round on our 18 hole Heritage course. During the round, all players will take part in individual, long drive and nearest the pin competitions before relaxing back at the clubhouse with much needed refreshments. The day will be concluded with a fundraising auction.
Letchworth Golf Club, are delighted to be able to support Paul Bishop and the team at the MS Centre as their golfing and fundraising partner.
