Charity Day at Patshull Park Hotel
23 October 2013
Patshull Park Hotel was very happy to hand over a generous donation to a charity dear to our hearts, Cure Leukaemia.
Patshull Park Hotel, Golf and Country Club raised over £4,000 for Cure Leukaemia earlier this year, funds which will leverage over £40,000 of drugs to give leukaemia patients access to potentially life-saving treatments.
Situated in the beautiful Shropshire countryside, Patshull Golf course, designed by the legendary John Jacobs, was the venue for a fundraising golf day organised by Head Greenkeeper Malcolm Mitchell. 150 golfers took to the course on a beautiful summer's afternoon with members Bill Bird and Terry Pardoe winning the competition.
Malcolm chose Cure Leukaemia for personal reasons and was delighted with the event and intends to hold another next year:
"It was a fantastic occasion and I was delighted we could raise such a great amount for Cure Leukaemia. The work they are doing to combat this terrible disease is ground-breaking and we were delighted to do our bit to help. I would like to thank our General Manager Stephen Kimbell for allowing us to use the Golf Course and facilities, our host of event sponsors for being so generous on the day and of course the competitors themselves who made the event such a memorable one. I look forward to organising the 2014 event and hopefully we can raise even more funds for Cure Leukaemia."
Cure Leukaemia Chief Executive James McLaughlin said:
"I'd like to thank Malcolm and Stephen for organising such a fantastic event for Cure Leukaemia. Every penny raised will go towards our support for the tremendous work done by Professor Charlie Craddock and his team at the Centre for Clinical Haematology at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham treating patients with potentially life-saving drug trials. Without the support of events like this we would not be able to continue the fight to eradicate this terrible disease once and for all."
