What a Total

On Wednesday 6th October EHGC hosted a Macmillan Coffee Morning…..and what a coffee morning it was!

From start to finish the bar was buzzing with members, friends, family and local residents enjoying the beautiful surrounds of EHGC and a feast of cakes.

The total raised was a whooping £1,470, thanks to the generosity of everyone who attended. Our thanks go to:

Days Bakery Buntingford , The Co-op Buntingford and Pearce’s Farm Shop for the kind cake donations.

Debbie Gibbs, Jean O’ Reilly and Moira Atkinson who gave up their time and worked tirelessly throughout the day.

To everyone from the local community and the members of East Herts Golf Club, who donated cakes and contributed to our amazing total.

Lastly, a special thank you to Lynn Dundas for making all this happen!

Well done Shaun

Amazing effort from @easthertsgolfclub member Shaun Whiter completing last weeks @londonmarathon and raising over £10k for @eastangliairamb
Let’s get this incredible total even higher by clicking on the link below to donate.
Shaun has written a thank you to the EHGC members below:
Sunday the third of October, I took on the challenge of the London Marathon and was able to complete it and collect the precious medal. But what I would like to say is a massive thank you to the members of East Herts Golf Club who kindly donated to my just giving page. With all your help and kind donations we raised a fantastic amount of money meaning the east Anglian air ambulance are able to take flight for a further three flights and help save lives and make a difference. Again, I would like to say a massive thank you to the members for their generosity especially as I have only been a member for a short period of time. I now look forward to getting out and playing golf again.Shaun Whiter
