On Sunday 29 August 2021 the Gorleston Golf Club held a charity golf day to raise funds for the James Paget Hospital Charity, to say thanks to all JPUH staff for their continued hard work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
In total the event raised £6264.17 for our charity. We are overwhelmingly pleased and grateful for all those who donated and the sponsors.
Below are a few words from the organiser Glen Harman (pictured above handing the cheque to Maxine Taylor, Charity Co-ordinator):
“It was early on once the pandemic had hit the nation that a friend of mine, and former member of the golf club, suggested a Charity golf day to say thanks to the JPUH for all their hard work.
A further year on and the event eventually took place.
With a lot of rallying around and badgering businesses and friends for donations, I think I got enough to make it a worthy day for a worthy cause and it’s with my thanks to them we made it .
I know as a Royal Norfolk Volunteer and Goodsam responder how hard that year was, even though I was pretty much retired. After many hours and miles delivering food shops and hundreds of medicine deliveries to the vulnerable and the 60 plus hours as a steward at vaccination clinics it all felt worthwhile.
It was with great pleasure for me today to hand over the cheque to Maxine Taylor, Charity Co-ordinator for James Paget Hospital, and I’m sure it will go on something special or needed to a particular ward or particular piece of equipment so please let me know.”
Thank you to the Gorleston Golf club for hosting a great event for our charity!
