Six members of Bognor Golf Club have raised more than £1900 for local hospital services… by growing moustaches.
The golfers ditched their razors to support an appeal launched by hospital staff to improve urology care in West Sussex.
Paul Carter, Consultant Urological Surgeon for Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the Chichester Nuffield Hospital, was delighted to receive the unexpected cheque in the post.
He said: “We are absolutely thrilled with this donation from the Bognor Golf Club. We have already raised a significant amount of money for Love Your Hospital, the trust’s dedicated charity, and are keen to use these funds raised by the members specifically to improve equipment used in our multi-disciplinary team meetings where we discuss our local cancer patients.”read more
