Hospice team delighted by donation
A GOLF club raised £8,000 for a hospice through a series of events.
Northwood resident Joe Sandercock used his year of captaincy at Moor Park Golf Club, off Rickmansworth Road, in Rickmansworth, to raise money for the Michael Sobell Hospice (MSH) at Mount Vernon Hospital, on the same road in Northwood.
He said: “Moor Park
THE First World War’s impact on Hillingdon’s canal industry will be lectured on this month.
The canal lectures will take place during a cruise on The Elsdale on members have been superb in supporting all the fundraising events in the past 12 months, from bridge drives, to golf days, tennis events and collections. It costs £1,000 a week to provide specialist care for a terminally ill patient at MSH so this money will fund eight weeks of care.”
The hospice cares for those facing life-limiting illnesses. It is the only February 23, with trips running from 11am to 1.20pm and 1.30pm to 3.50pm. The trips will start and end near to specialist palliative care in-patient unit in the Hillingdon borough.
