The Rotary Club of Burnley have nailed a hole in one after raising over £3,000 for Pendleside Hospice at their annual Charity Golf Day at Nelson Golf Club.

Held on Friday 25th May, teams of four each chipped in £160 to take part in a round of golf in the name of the hospice, while a number of local businesses also showed their support by jumping at the chance to sponsor a hole for £100, with the final fundraising total reaching £3,250.

Sponsored by Fantrac Global Ltd, James Brearley & Sons, and Margins Financial Solutions Ltd, attendees at the golf day were also treated to refreshments along the course and a carved buffet upon finishing, while a raffle with fantastic prizes was held following the awards ceremony at the end of the day, rewarding teams who placed first, second, and third with prizes.

“We are very grateful to our sponsors for supporting this event and directly impacting the great work done at Pendleside Hospice," said Neil Beecham of the rotary club. "Thank you also to all those who came and took part, a great day was had by all.”

With running costs of over £4.2m per year, Pendleside provides an invaluable service to people with cancer or other life-limiting illnesses to ensure that their quality of life is as high as possible through the work of specialist care and the provision of social, emotional, and spiritual support for the patient and their family.
