£35,000 has been raised following our 30th Anniversary Golf Day which took place on 11th October 2021 at The Grove, Watford.
88 people attended the event, sponsored by Ricoh UK, which saw a mix of local and national businesses and individual supporters come together to raise money for the Hospice during this 30th anniversary year event. Luther Blissett DL, our Patron, was also in attendance.
Gemma Norris, Fundraising Team Lead at Peace Hospice Care, said: “We had an incredible day at The Grove for our 30th Anniversary Golf Day, and the sun was shining! It still remains a very challenging time in the fundraising landscape as, like everyone else, we continue to work hard to try and recover from the last 18 months. We’re still here because of the incredible support from our local community and we’re so grateful that you continue to remain by our side through both the ups and downs, so together we can ensure we are there for people when they need us. A special thank you to Ricoh UK Ltd for sponsoring the event for a 3rd year running and to everyone who attended and supported us on the day.”
Phil Keoghan, CEO of Ricoh UK Ltd, said: “My congratulations to Peace Hospice Care for organising an outstanding Golf Day, I know it was thoroughly enjoyed by all who took part. Ricoh was built on a culture of care, and a passionate commitment to corporate responsibility has been woven into our DNA since Ricoh was founded in 1936. The past year has been incredibly tough for all charitable organisations and we’re delighted that Ricoh could once again support Peace Hospice Care. We’re especially proud that this is their 30th Anniversary year. On behalf of Ricoh UK, I’d like to thank all the team at Peace Hospice Care for the wonderful work they do to help improve the quality of life for patients and families.”
