A cheque for more than £14,000 raised from a charity golf day in Surrey organised by our South East region was presented to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
The money was collected at an event supported by more than 200 paying players and guests in October at Foxhills Golf and Country Club in Ottershaw. It will go towards funding part of the hospital’s family accommodation.
Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity needs to generate more than £50 million every year to provide world-class care for the 240,000-plus patient visits it receives annually.
After handing over the funds on Tuesday December 16th, the Linden Homes team was taken on a tour of the hospital to find out more about how the donation will be used.
They were welcomed by Richard Bowyer, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity director of marketing and public fundraising, and Jenny Pearce, fundraising executive.
Jenny Pearce said: “We’re very grateful to Linden Homes South East for choosing to support Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity through their golf day.”
Darren Maddox, managing director at Linden Homes South East, added: “It was wonderful to see the work Great Ormond Street Hospital does for its young patients and their families. We’re very proud to help such a good cause, and grateful to all the golf day donors.”
