PLAYERS at Newark Golf Club raised £2,600 for Beaumond House Community Hospice, Newark, at the club’s tenth annual hole-in-one day.

Another £1,050 was donated to the Children’s Bereavement Centre, Newark, a charity selected by club captain Keith Martin.

Simon Channon, the seniors’ competitions organiser, said: “It is a brilliant event that has been running for as long as I have been at the club.

“Over £50,000 has been donated to Beaumond House in that time and we are constantly improving our relationship with the charity.”

A total of 74 members took part in the charity day, each giving £10 to attempt the course.

The prize at stake was a Kia Stonic car, provided by Grantham dealer Victor Wood ­— but no one scored the hole-in-one at the 15th hole that would have won it.

Mr Martin said: “We know it is unlikely that someone will win the car but the day is about the charities and bringing friends together.”

Rose Turner, a healthcare assistant at Beaumond House, received the cheque.

She said: “We appreciate all the support from Newark Golf Club and other local companies.

“We need £1m each year to continue the support and days like this are great.”

Kate Baxter, director of Children’s Bereavement Centre, said: “We are thrilled to bits. We could not do this without Keith.

“The help from everybody at the club over the year has been great.”
