Golfers in Thetford have been clubbing together to help fund the care provided to youngsters across Norfolk with life-threatening conditions.

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is Thetford Golf Club captain Alan Brown’s chosen charity, and throughout the year members have been working hard to raise vital funds for the charity.

The amount raised stands at £11,100 which is enough to pay for two whole days of the care and support EACH provides across the county - at its Quidenham hospice, families’ homes and in the community.

The money was raised through a range of fund-raising events including a captain’s day in July and captain’s weekend in August.

Mr Brown said: “I have been delighted to help raise funds for such a worthy local charity.

“When I moved to the area 12 years ago I became aware of the wonderful work that EACH undertakes in the eastern region and I decided it would be a worthy charity for me to support during my year as captain.

“I would like to thank all members of the club and our many visitors who have chipped in to support the fund-raising effort. We have received generous donations and sponsorship from local companies which has been fantastic.”

Carol Plunkett, EACH Norfolk fund-raising manager, said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Thetford Golf Club for helping to raise this tremendous amount of money and in particular captain Alan Brown for choosing to support EACH this year. We are so grateful for their support.”
