Golfers tee off for hospice charity

GOLFERS teed off for Shakespeare Hospice at a ‘golf, quiz and curry’ night in Tiddington.

The Friday Afternoon Crew Golf Society (FAC) presented the Shottery-based hospice with a cheque for £3,520 raised over the past year.

Group treasurer Andrew Spriggs said: “The Friday Afternoon Crew is a golf society founded originally to take the occasional Friday afternoon off work to play golf. The society has expanded to some 80 members from the Stratford area who enjoy both competitive and friendly golf whilst visiting golf clubs in the Midlands but at the same time look to support worthy causes.

“Since 2017 we have concentrated our fund-raising to the Shakespeare Hospice which fulfills the criteria of being local but provides invaluable services to the whole of the local community.

“The FAC relies on the support of the golf clubs who both donate vouchers and provide complimentary services but primarily it is the support of the members that make the FAC what it is today.”
