Calcot Golf Club Reading Supports Sue Ryder Hospice In Charity Partnership
Calcot Golf Club in Reading has committed to supporting Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice after announcing the hospice as their ‘charity of the year’.
The golf club kicked off the partnership with the Reading hospice, which provides expert palliative care to people who are living with life-limiting conditions, this month with their official launch event.
This year’s Calcot Golf Club Captain, Seamus Ward, chose Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice as the chosen charity after his mum received outpatient palliative care from the hospice. He said: “So many people we know have had friends or family affected by life limiting conditions and have received exceptional care from nurses at Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent.
“The work they do is incredible and without their support, the hardest times would be even harder. We are honoured to be able to support our local hospice this year and give something back.”
The start of the partnership was marked by the club captain’s ‘Drive In’, where club members celebrated with a meal and Sue Ryder Community Fundraising Manager Hannah Richards spoke about the difference the partnership will make.
Hannah Richards, Community Fundraising Manager for Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent, said: “We’re so grateful to Seamus at the Calcot Golf Club for choosing us as their charity of the year and committing to support us in 2024. The funds raised will make a huge difference in helping us to be there when it matters for people going through the most difficult times of their lives.”
