Worthing hospice St Barnabas House is holding a charity golf day on Thursday 19 July at Ham Manor Golf Club in Angmering, celebrating 45 years since the hospice first opened.
The event was inspired by Jim Miller and Jill Howell, Ham Manor’s Men’s and Ladies’ Captains who are supporting the hospice as their ‘Charity of the Year’.
Jim said: “We have chosen to raise money for the Hospice at Home service provided by St Barnabas House, our local hospice, as both Jill and I have had family and friends cared for by the caring and compassionate nurses of St Barnabas who have given great comfort at a very difficult time.”
Jill added: “We are so happy to be hosting the St Barnabas House Golf Day and look forward to welcoming everyone here for some good golf on our parkland course.”
The day will start at 9am with registration, bacon rolls, tea and coffee, followed by an 18-hole competition on Ham Manor’s beautiful parkland course. There will also be longest drive, nearest the pin and putting competitions included in the day.
Afterwards teams will enjoy a two-course meal in the Grade II listed manor house, as well as a raffle and auction.
Mary Bye, Community Fundraiser at St Barnabas House, said: “We are really lucky to have the help of not just Ham Manor and the Captains, but Ian Jaggard and Kevin Buck MBE who have kindly given up their time to help on the committee.
“Places are limited, so if you have a team of four please contact us as soon as you can to reserve your place.”
In addition to teams, St Barnabas House is also looking for companies to sponsor a hole or provide raffle and auction prizes.
