Charity golf day at Centurion Club raises £30k for Keech Hospice Care

19 October 2023

Our October charity golf day held at Hemel Hempstead’s Centurion Club raised an incredible £30k. Those who took part in the event included Keech Hospice Care’s Business Club members, charity ambassadors and supporters, including Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire Robert Voss, the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire Liz Green and High Sheriff of Bedfordshire, Russell Beard, who acted as auctioneer on the day.

The weather held out for the golfers, who enjoyed not just the conditions but also the beautifully cultivated yet challenging course at Centurion Club. The team who took home the trophy was the Drastic Jaksics, comprising Matt Day, Thomas Quinlivan, Drazen Jaksic and Michael Sutton.

Regardless of scores, the event was a huge success, with a phenomenal amount of money being raised through participation, support from the charity Helping Herts and also through the auction. Some of the wonderful and weird prizes being auctioned included golf at Muirfield, Ashridge and Royal St George’s in Kent, a private tour at Hotel Chocolat and a trip on a combine harvester!

Big thanks goes to the team from Cawleys who introduced us to Centurion Club, supported us by playing and sponsored the Halfway House barbecue. And of course, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated on the day and donated auction prizes. Without their generosity, this wonderful day simply wouldn’t have been possible.
