Golfers are invited to tee off for the ninth big fundraiser for the St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice at Gedney Hill Golf Club.

The event was founded by former senior captain Terry Grantham (87), a hospice volunteer, and the veteran member hopes to see a big turn out for this year’s charity golf day, which takes place on Sunday, June 24.

Team entry for four people is £40 and the money raised will help the St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice specialist health professionals deliver expert care to those who have complex symptoms and pain.

There are prizes on the golf day, thanks to generous sponsorship by businesses, and there’s a great spirit of camaraderie on the course.

Last year’s event raised £1,000 for the charity, which has a hospice in Spalding.

Terry became involved in the hospice movement when he lived in London and continued as a volunteer when he and wife Joan moved to South Holland 21 years ago.

The couple devoted their 60th wedding anniversary to fundraising for the hospice, donating £180 to the cause, and Terry hopes to see the 10th anniversary of golf day.

He says: “My friends call me an optimist.”

St Barnabas must raise £5.5million each year in order to provide free care for those with life-limiting illnesses.

The charity’s wide ranging services include in-patient care, care at home, outpatient clinics, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, complementary therapy and welfare advice.
