Gathurst Golf Club gifted a total of £6,120 to the British Heart Foundation. Barry Faulkner and Julie Wall, captains of the club raised the money through a series of events throughout 2023, including a 195-mile sponsored walk, charity golf days, raffles and a charity auction.
They presented the impressive total to the British Heart Foundation representative Pippa Aspin to mark the end of their year as captains. The charity was close to their hearts as both have had family affected by heart health issues.
The pair said: “A huge thank-you goes to all the members of the club for helping to raise this incredible amount. Every penny raised goes towards help finding life-saving research to fix hearts and save lives.”
