Charity Golf Day raises £150,000 for St Clare Hospice
Alloy Fabweld was proud to support the annual Weston Homes Golf Day which raised vital funds for St Claire Hospice, a charity close to the heart of the AF Group.
Joining forces with other businesses across the industry, along with our sister company, Flexi Group UK, together raising a staggering £150,000 in aid of local charity St Clare Hospice at the Weston Homes annual Golf Day. £150,000 pays for 238 days’ worth of care for a patient in the Inpatient Unit at St Clare. Vital care enables family members to become husbands, wives, sons, and daughters again, rather than carers.
Alloy Fabweld are long-standing charitable partners of the West Essex and East Hertfordshire hospice and have raised considerable sums for the charity through different events and activities.
Sponsored and attended by 44 individual teams from other local companies, the Golf Day raised an incredible sum in vital funding this year for St Clare Hospice, which will go towards their specialist, compassionate palliative care for local people living with a life-limiting illness in West Essex and East Herts.
On the day, guests and golfers played the prestigious venue at The Belfry, Sutton Coldfield, finishing with a charity auction and fine-dining, in which guests bid generously for top prizes – including prestigious golf breaks, Newmarket tickets, signed sports memorabilia, amongst other impressive prizes.
St Clare Director of Income Generation and Marketing, Rosie Knowles said: “Every year, we are completely humbled by the staggering sum of money that is raised at the Weston Homes’ Golf Day – and the figure continues to surprise everyone each year! £150,000 is a truly significant sum of money and is enough to fund more than 230 days’ worth of care for a patient in the specialist Inpatient Unit at St Clare. Vital care which enables family members to become husbands, wives, sons, and daughters again, rather than carers.”
Shaun Pledger shared: “We are proud to support St Clare Hospice, they play a vital role for the local community, supporting thousands of people and their families every year”.
The past few years have been particularly difficult, especially in the healthcare and charity sector. St Clare Hospice has been able to continue to care thanks to the incredible support of businesses, individuals, volunteers, and care teams working at the hospice. St Claire Hospice works tirelessly around the clock to care for people in our local community.
St Clare Hospice works tirelessly to help others when a family member falls unwell, providing important services not provided by the NHS.
It costs over £ 4 million each year to provide these vital services free of charge to those living with life-limiting illnesses now and in the future every penny does count.
St Clare Hospice is a local charity and each year they care for hundreds of people across West Essex and the East Hertfordshire border. St Clare provides free, compassionate care & support to adults with life-limiting illnesses, their families, and carers. Their motto is 'Hospice care is about life and living'.
