Golfers tee off to raise thousands for High Peak hospice

A charity day at a High Peak golf club has raised around £7,000 for local hospice services. 

Some 100 local golfers teed off at Chapel-en-le-Frith Golf Club recently in aid of Blythe House Hospicecare & Helen’s Trust.

The event was set around the newly renovated al fresco area at the club, and participants enjoyed 18 holes of golf in beautiful conditions as well as some refreshments. 

Generous donations of bottles for the tombola allowed additional income to be raised on the day, along with some friendly challenges out on the course.

Blythe House say the money raised will pay for 47 full nights of care for patients living in the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales who are affected by a life-limiting illness and wish to remain at home at the end of their life.

Becca Gregory, Fundraising & Events Coordinator at Blythe House Hospicecare, said: "We are so grateful to Chapel-en-le-Frith Golf Club for hosting this event for us. It was a wonderful day in a fantastic setting and the amount raised will make a huge difference to those in our community who benefit from the services provided by the hospice.

"Further thanks go to the golfers that took part and all of the local businesses and individuals who provided sponsorship, prizes and donations." 

The golf club has confirmed the golf day will return next year, on Friday 19 August 2022.
