A charity golf tournament at Welwyn Garden City’s Brocket Hall has raised more than £35,000 for a Jewish charity.
The 43rd Pro Am Golf Tournament saw 69 golfers and 23 professionals take to the course, with the money raised going to Jewish Care's Rela Goldhill at Otto Schiff home, a specialist home providing care for adults with physical disabilities and sensory impairments.
After a morning on the 18-hole course that provides stunning views of Brocket Hall, the Broadwater Lake and surrounding parkland, golfers enjoyed a lunch at Brocket Hall where Jewish Care’s director of fundraising and community engagement, Adam Overlander-Kaye spoke to the golfers.
“I’d like to thank the committee for their hard work, Lockton, our sponsors and all of the participants in the tournament for your support in raising funds for our work at Jewish Care’s Rela Goldhill at Otto Schiff home,” he said.
“Your support really does change people’s lives. After a difficult 18 months, our highly trained staff at the home have supported the residents through the COVID-19 pandemic and kept them safe.
