Welwyn Hatfield charities get a boost from golf club
A BUSINESS is hoping to help charities get through the rough of the credit crunch as it helped with Brocket Hall’s fundraising efforts.
Home Start, Open Door Trust and Age UK’s operation at Douglas Tilbe House, in WGC, all received �1,000 cheques from Brocket Hall Golf Club member Placid Gonzales, a senior partner of St James’s Place Wealth Management.
The charities were chosen at the start of this season by captains of the Lemsford-based club Nick Clayton and Lisa Miller.
He said: “Brocket Hall has an image of being a bit of a selective golf club, but this just shows its members give a lot to charity.
“It’s nice to be able to give something back to the community.
