Registration is now open for the Hospiscare Golf Day
The 16th Annual Marnie Burgoyne Golf Day in aid of Hospiscare will go ahead this year at Exeter Golf and Country Club on 1 July 2021, after being cancelled last year.
This very popular event has now raised more than £200,000 for Hospiscare, since it was first held in 2005. The money has been used to to provide specialist nurses and doctors care for people across Exeter, East and Mid Devon who are living with a terminal illness, at a time when they need support the most.
After sadly having to cancel last year’s event due to the pandemic, Hospiscare is anticipating that demand for places will be high. Start times will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis – so they recommend booking early to secure your preferred choice and help make this another hugely successful day.
The financial effects of the pandemic have been challenging for Hospiscare with a deficit of around £1.5million predicted for the coming year. Events like the Marnie Burgoyne Golf Day are vital to help with their recovery.
The charity is focusing on narrowing the deficit in their finances to keep their services open and ensuring care is available when needed. Each year the charity cares for around 2000 families, that might be in the hospice in Exeter, though a home visit or by a virtual visit from one of our expert clinicians. At any one time around 700 families are feeling the reassurance of Hospiscare, this is only possible because of the generosity of those who support their work.
“The Marnie Burgoyne Memorial Golf Day is such a special date in the Hospiscare calendar, never more so than this year. Sponsored by Burgoynes Estate Agents and organised by a dedicated committee this event has not only grown into one of the premier golf local events it also provides much needed funds to help Hospiscare continue to serve the community it is so proud to be part of.”
