Golfers get into the swing at Annual Hospice Golf day

On Thursday 13 September, 18 teams of golfers teed off to compete for Willowbrook Hospice’s annual Charity Shield golf day

The event, held at Blundells Hill Golf Course, raised over £5000 for the hospice which provides free care and support for people with life limiting illnesses across St Helens and Knowsley.

Scooping first place were Huyton based HTL Buses captained by John Yates.

John, whose mother-in-law was cared for at Willowbrook in 2014, said: “We were made up to win the Charity Shield! It was a great day’s golf and we’re proud to be able to support such a wonderful facility as Willowbrook.”

Carl Davies, Fundraiser for Willowbrook Hospice’s said: “It was a fantastic day and I’d like to thank all of the golfers who took part in raising such an amazing amount for the hospice – every penny of which will go towards helping us to continue to care and support local people and their families. On behalf of Willowbrook, I’d also like to thank everyone who supported the event by providing sponsorship or donating prizes including the trophies.”

After a day on the golf course, the players enjoyed a well-earned three-course dinner which was followed by presentation and prize raffle.
