GOLFERS got into the swing of fundraising and managed to raise more than £2,500 for Primrose Hospice at a charity golf day.

A number of teams took part in the Vietec Charity Golf Day 2019 at the Gaudet Luce in Droitwich last week.

Despite the rain, everyone remained in high spirits and enjoyed a breakfast, professional tips from Elizabeth Mallet and a two-course lunch as well as a round of golf.

Danielle Connelly, marketing co-ordinator, said: “We were pleased to announce that we raised over £2,500 from the golf day which will go towards our annual target of raising £10,000 for Primrose Hospice.

“The money will help support The Primrose Hospice and all the wonderful services they provide to our local community.”

The winning team were MFG Solicitors with second and third place going to teams from ICCP and Connectix.

Prizes were also given for individual best score of the day and longest drive.

Amy Flemming, from the hospice, said: “We are really grateful to Vietec and all they are doing to raise money for Primrose Hospice to help keep our services free for people with life-limiting conditions and their families.

“Your local hospice has to raise £1.75million to keep these services free with more than 85 per cent of this total having to come from fundraising.

“Businesses like Vietec choosing to make us their charity of the year goes a long way to help us reach this target.”
