Cotswold Hills Golf Club at Ullenwood, Cheltenham, presented a cheque for £8,386 to CLIC Sargent following a year of fundraising.
Alan Taylor, Cotswold Hills Captain, chose CLIC Sargent as his charity for his year in office, as a family member, nine-year-old Joseph Breland, died earlier this year from cancer.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Engagement Manager Caroline Marshall said: “It is absolutely incredible that the golfers and guests at Cotswold Hills Golf Cub have been able to raise a fantastic £8,386 through a wonderful year of fundraising events."
"I would like to thank everyone involved for their generosity and for ensuring that young lives facing cancer have the vital support of CLIC Sargent.”
Fay Bennett, grandmother of Joseph Breland, thanked Alan Taylor for choosing CLIC Sargent as his charity for this year, and thanked Caroline for all the support CLIC had given to her family.
She said: “From day one to the day Joseph died, CLIC Sargent was there, every step of the way, giving practical, emotional and medical support, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
Every day 11 families are given the news that their child has cancer. By supporting CLIC Sargent, those families will be able to benefit from the care and support they so desperately need.
