Holyhead Golf Club and its members have raised £705 towards new end of life services on Anglesey.

Allan Walker, Club Captain for 2018 chose St David’s Hospice as his charity of the year in recognition of the valuable service it will be to the local community.

The charity, which strives to make end of life care available to all across North West Wales, plans to unveil the new four-bed inpatient complex next year. The building work is set to start in April 2019 and will convert a ward at Penrhos Stanley Community Hospital, Holyhead.

The cheque was presented to the St David’s Hospice Anglesey Area Fundraiser, Ella Baxendale on 29th of November at the Golf Club’s AGM. The money was raised throughout Mr Walker’s term and includes proceeds from an annual charity day.

Ella Baxendale said:

“We were thrilled to have been chosen as Holyhead Golf Club’s Captain’s Charity of the Year, not only for the fact that the amount raised will certainly be a great step towards reaching our fundraising goal for the new Hospice, but also for the members’ support as without the backing of the local community the work we are undertaking would simply not be possible”.
