As the Captain of Ben Rhydding Golf Club for 2023 , I have decided to support the Airedale Hospital and Community Charity for the duration of my captaincy. I’m really pleased to be doing this for a good local cause. Everyone at the club has been involved with Airedale hospital in one way or another. Children have been born and people have been treated there over the years.
Ben Rhydding Golf Club is a small, volunteer-run club. Each year, the club chooses a charity to support and this year my choice is the official NHS charity for Airedale NHS Foundation Trust. The charity raises funds to invest in patient experience and staff wellbeing at Airedale hospital and its community services.
Ours is a very benevolent club and everyone is definitely up for a few charity golf matches with the Airedale lot next year. I’ve given myself a target to raise £5k over the year and I can’t wait to get started! We have lots of plans including regular quiz nights and charity golf days that people will be able to get involved in to support a great charity.
Jodie Hearnshaw, manager at Airedale Hospital and Community Charity, said: “We’re extremely grateful to Andy and everyone at Ben Rhydding Golf Club for choosing to support us in 2023. Any funds that they raise will make a real difference to patients and their loved ones at Airedale Hospital.”
“On behalf of everyone at Airedale, thank you! We’re really looking forward to working with Andy and the team. They’ve got some exciting events planned.”
