Lord Brocket returns home to host charity golf day

A TRIP down memory lane proved a financially beneficial one for a cause supported by Lord Brocket.

For the peer returned to his former home, Brocket Hall in Lemsford, to host a golf day to raise money for children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.

And the money rolled in at Wednesday’s event, with more than �50,000 raised throughout the day.

This included �36,700 from a post-round charity auction to help CLIC Sargent fund play specialists, who help children cope with, and understand, difficult treatments and procedures.

First up though was the golf, and eight teams battled it out on the stately home’s Melbourne Course, before enjoying a two-course lunch and the auction.

Lord Brocket said: “All the money raised from this event will go towards CLIC Sargent’s vital work, so a great day out on the fairways also supported a worthy cause at the same time.”

Paul Turner, head of major fundraising at CLIC Sargent, said: “I would like to say a big thank you to Lord Brocket. I’d also like to thank everybody who bought a ticket and bid for auction prizes for supporting CLIC Sargent to be there every step of the way for children and young people with cancer.
