Join top golfer for tournament in aid of Willow Wood Hospice

A TOP amateur golfer is inviting others to join him at the tee to help raise funds for Willow Wood Hospice.Twice Lancashire amateur champion Martin Wild, who is a patron of the hospice, is hosting a golf tournament on Friday, September 13 as part of Willow Wood’s 20th anniversary celebrations.

The event, at Ashton Golf Club, costs £300 per four ball and includes refreshments on arrival and at halfway, a three-course dinner, prize presentation and more. There will be also competitions along the way and a luxury raffle in the evening.

Martin said: “As well as providing a great day of golf, the tournament will raise much needed funds.

“I was shocked when I realised that, although it costs £7,340 every single day to provide its specialised care, Willow Wood have to raise over 79 per cent of that from the community.

“Having experienced first-hand the support, compassion and wonderful care given to patients and their families, I pledged to do whatever I could to help.”

Event organiser Elaine McConnell said: “I can’t thank Martin enough for hosting this tournament on our behalf and we’re all really looking forward to the day.
