South Herefordshire Golf Club has raised £3000 for Acorns Children’s Hospice, a charity that provides care for children with life-limiting conditions.
The funds were raised in honor of Brian Bishop, the club’s former president, who passed away in December 2021.
Bishop had been a member of South Herefordshire Golf Club since 1998, serving on various committees and being elected Senior Section Captain in 2002 and Club President in 2016. He was remembered as a friend and a character who supported the club and its members in any way he could.
At the beginning of 2022, Bishop had started fundraising for Acorns Children’s Hospice, and the club members continued his legacy by raising the funds. The cheque was presented to Mel Hall from Acorns at the club’s AGM by Brian’s wife Maureen and eldest son Alex.
The donation is a tremendous achievement and will go a long way in supporting the charity’s efforts to provide care for children with life-limiting conditions. The club and its members are proud to have contributed to this cause in honor of their late president.
