The Royal Oak Scotby
Between 2003 and 2016 The Royal Oak Scotby Charity Golf Day has helped to raise an incredible £71,545 in aid of Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw. Over these years hundreds of golfers, event sponsors, local businesses and generous individuals have helped to make the events a huge success.
Every year the money raised at the annual golf day, which is held at Stony Holme Golf Club, has not only helped the hospice to provide care, support and activities for our patients, it has also funded a range of different projects.
In 2013, the event helped to purchase a range of items from the hospice’s Wish List, including two sofa beds for families and relatives to use, a food trolley to use in all areas of the hospice, bird feeding stations and new tools for the hospice gardens and many more items.
The 2014 event allowed the hospice to purchase a second greenhouse, hanging baskets, heaters, seeds and many more other items. The greenhouse is an important part of the hospice as it allows our maintenance team, volunteers and daycare patients to produce their own flowers and vegetables to plant in the hospice gardens and saves on expenditure from hospice funds.
The 2015 event raised over £9,000 which has allowed the hospice to refurbish the flooring in one of the rooms at the hospice, purchase new stage lights for Jigsaw as well as support a future project.
In 2016 the Charity Golf Day, which took place on Friday 9 September, raised an incredible £9,360 in aid of the hospice. The money raised has enable the hospice to purchase a wide range of items from our Wishlist, including a Stand Aid, Arts and Craft Cupboards, Rise and Recline chair plus much more.
Along with the Golf Day, the Royal Oak Scotby host a range of other fundraising events in aid of the hospice, including quiz nights, raffles, auctions, race nights and much more.
Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw would like to thank the Royal Oak Scotby, all of the golfers, sponsors and individuals for their incredible kindness, generosity and continued support of the hospice.
