Golf day boost for Bluebell Wood

Over 80 golfing enthusiasts have demonstrated their putting and back swing skills to help Bluebell Wood raise over £4,000.

Bluebell Wood, which supports children and young adults with life-threatening and life-shortening conditions in Worksop, North Nottinghamshire and further afield, held its Annual Golf Day at Worksop Golf Club, where the charity was given free use of the greens for the day.

With entry fees, raffles and donations all helping to raise money, every penny will be used to help Bluebell Wood support families facing the toughest of times.

The Annual Golf Day, which saw 20 teams compete on the greens on the edge of Sherwood Forest, was won by ‘Three Golfers and Gail’. Sue Schofield from Hallam Express won the Nearest the Pin competition on both holes, with staff from Lloyds Bank volunteering at the halfway house and refreshments supplied by Bluebell Wood’s Worksop Support Group.

Jo Berry, Events Fundraiser, Bluebell Wood said: “It was a brilliant day all round and I’d like to thank all our volunteers and supporters who helped to make it such a success. We’re delighted so many people came along to help us raise this fantastic amount. This will help Bluebell Wood do even more for the 250 families it supports both at the hospice and in family homes.

“Worksop Golf club is an outstanding course and provided a great round for our golfers. We were lucky enough to have fabulous weather which helped everyone to have lots of golfing fun.”
