Golf captains raise thousands for St David’s Hospice

Nefyn and District Golf Club has raised a total of £9,200 for St David’s Hospice through a series of fundraising events and challenges in 2021.

The funds were raised over the course of a year by the Men’s and Ladies captains Alan Williams and Gillian Walker.  As club captains they get to decide which charity to support for the twelve months. Both chose to nominate the same charity, St David’s Hospice as they wanted to support the good work it provides in the community for end-of-life care.

Ladies Captain Gillian Walker, whose late husband was cared for by the Hospice, said:

“I chose to support Hosbis Dewi Sant as the Hospice at Home service was invaluable help to me and my late husband”

Multiple events were organised over the year which included, a garden party organised by the Ladies Section, a concert with Elin Fflur and a walking challenge to the summit of Snowdon at sunset by Alan.

Men’s Captain Alan Williams said,

“My year as captain was very enjoyable, though at times we found it hard to organise events due to the Covid restrictions in place. For example, our concert with Elin Fflur was cancelled 3 times. My most enjoyable event was the Snowdon Sunset walk. We are glad that we as members of Nefyn Golf Club were able to contribute towards the charity.”

All monies raised will go directly to St David’s Hospice, a local charity, caring for local people. They deliver specialist care free of charge to adult patients with life limiting illnesses or those in need of end of life care and their families.

Keri McKie, Hospice Gwynedd and Anglesey Area Fundraiser said,

“As the rules began to ease, Gillian and Alan quickly came to realise their year would be like no other. Having to come up with new ideas and thinking outside the box, determined this tough period would not affect their monies raised for their chosen charity, St David’s Hospice. It has been a pleasure to support them over the last year and their total figure raised is incredible”
