Hartlepool continues its fundraising support for Alice House Hospice

Hartlepool Golf Club captain Heath Hardman has handed over a cheque for nearly £10,000 to Alice House Hospice as the club continued its fundraising for the charity.

Greg Hildreth accepted the cheque for £9,707.10 on the charity’s behalf. The club has now raised more than £100,000 for the hospice. To mark passing that milestone, last year the club was presented with the Alice Bendle Shield, named after the hospice’s founder, to be played for annually by members.

Many of Heath’s predecessors have also supported the hospice while members of the club have been involved in various fundraising initiatives in the last 10 years.

When Greg handed over the shield to the club, he said: “The club has shown a huge amount of warmth and support to local hospice care and it has been an absolute pleasure working alongside them over the years.”
