Kai Widdrington from Strictly Come Dancing was amongst the competitors at a golf day which raised nearly £20,000 for Forest Holme Hospice.
A total of 164 golfers – including professionals – took part in the event at Bramshaw Golf Club in the New Forest.
Paul Coyte, breakfast time broadcaster on TalkSPORT, hosted the day which included a Beat the Pro game, raffle and auction of sporting prizes including a signed Ronnie O’Sullivan snooker cue and premium hospitality tickets to a Premier League game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The event, organised by Southampton-based Simplify Consulting which offers practitioner-led consultancy services, has chosen Forest Holme Hospice as its Charity of the Year. Rodford Engineering sponsored the golf day.
Forest Holme Hospice provides palliative and end-of-life care and support to more than 1,500 people with advanced cancer and other life-limiting illnesses across Poole, Wimborne and the Isle of Purbeck each year. However, due to an increase in patient referrals of over 40 per cent year on year, the charity now needs to raise at least £1,000,000 annually to ensure these services help to meet the ever-growing need within the local community.
Hannah O’Hare, development manager at Forest Holme Hospice, said: “The money raised will help to make our patients’ final hours, days and weeks of life as comfortable and as pain free as possible. We simply couldn’t do what we do without the support of local businesses such as Simplify Consulting.”
