Organisers John Hodgson and his brother Dalby, a Senior Marshal at the club, together with Golf Club Secretary Manager Kevin Made, presented the cheque at the hospice’s new Shelford Bottom site which is currently under construction directly opposite the Gog Magog course.
Receiving the cheque, alongside the Charity’s Chief Executive, Dr Lynn Morgan, Donna Talbot, Director of Fundraising and Communications, said: “It’s has been wonderful to have the support of John, Dalby and the Gog Magog Golf course over the years and astounding that they have now raised over £46,000 for us! As you can see from the photo, our new hospice is really starting to take shape and we are excited that the by the time the 2017 Gog Magog Golf Day comes around, we will be providing our vital care and services from the purpose built building, situated in green and leafy surroundings right opposite the course. We hope our relationship with the Club will continue to grow as Arthur Rank Hospice becomes an integral part of the community in Shelford Bottom.”
The Charity would like to thank John and Dalby Hodgson for their impressive efforts in organising the day, Kevin Mader and the team at the Gog Magog Golf Course for hosting, along with all the teams and sponsors – especially headline sponsors Solopark and Buckingham & Stanley Group - who were involved on the bi-annual event on Friday 26 June 2015.
Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire living with an advanced serious illness or a life-limiting condition and those who need end-of-life care. Our ‘Outstanding’ services are provided free of charge to patients and their families.
We care for more than 4,100 patients each year at our Hospice in Cambridge, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. This care supports people to improve their quality of life and fulfil their end of their life choices.
It will cost £10.5 million in 2021/2022 to run our services, which are provided free of charge to patients and their loved ones. We have currently secured £6.98 million from the NHS, meaning that £3.52 million needs to be raised through donations, fundraising activities and trading. We are extremely grateful to our local community for the continual dedication, commitment and generosity they show in supporting us to meet this target.
