Golfers swung into action for a Welwyn Garden City-based hospice, raising nearly £12,000.

The Isabel Hospice Special Events Committee has announced the triumphant result of their recent Charity Golf Day held at the acclaimed Brickendon Grange Golf Club.

The event, held earlier this summer, succeeded in raising a substantial total of £11,860 in support of the charitable efforts of Isabel Hospice.

Welwyn Garden City-based Isabel Hospice has been tirelessly serving the community of eastern Hertfordshire for over four decades by offering palliative care, free of charge.

The golf day on June 8 boasted more than just an opportunity for golf enthusiasts to showcase their skills.

Brickendon Grange, with its newly-recognised best amateur golf hole in the UK, provided the perfect backdrop for a day filled with camaraderie, competition, and charity.

Following the golfing activities, attendees were treated to a delightful dinner, an exciting auction, a raffle draw, and a prizegiving ceremony for the top-performing team.

Barbara Doherty MBE, president of Isabel Hospice and the driving force behind the Special Events Committee, was delighted with how much the event raised.

Barbara said: "The golf day was a big success and a great day was had by all.

"The Special Events Committee are delighted with the substantial amount raised for Isabel Hospice."




Highlighting the significance of such fundraising events, Katy O'Sullivan, head of fundraising at Isabel Hospice, added: "Events like the Brickendon Golf Day are really great fun, but are also so important for raising funds to support the vital service that Isabel Hospice provides."

As the community continues to rally behind Isabel Hospice and its mission, another Charity Golf Day has already been scheduled.

The next charity golf event in aid of Isabel Hospice will take place at the prestigious Melbourne Club at Brocket Hall on Thursday, October 12.
