The outgoing captain of Newark Golf Club said he was delighted after raising more than £6,000 for Beaumond House Community Hospice during his year in the role.
Mr Jose Andrade, 60, of Newark, was men’s captain for the 2016 season. His fundraising included a £500 donation from Lloyds Bank.

A number of events, including the season-ending Captain’s Day, organised by Mr Andrade, raised money for the hospice, which offers palliative care to people with life-limiting or terminal illnesses.

He was made club captain after 18 years as a member.

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime role,” Mr Andrade said.

“At the start of the year I didn’t think I would raise as much money as I have, but people from the club have been very generous.”

Mr Andrade said supporting Beaumond House was an easy decision.

“I have worked in Newark for a long time and you often hear stories of people the hospice has helped and about all the incredible work it does.”

The golf club captain for the 2017 season is Mr David Yarnell whose nominated charity is the Newark branch of Guide Dogs.
