Join St Barnabas at the annual Rilmac Golf Day in Market Rasen and help raise money for hospice care

On Friday 28th September, Rilmac are set to hold their annual Golf Day in Market Rasen. This is to raise money for St Barnabas Hospice, as well as the British Heart Foundation and Prostate Cancer UK.

The Golf Day will be held at Market Rasen Golf Club, Legsby Road, Market Rasen, LN8 3DZ. Teams of four can enter, and can be made up of men, ladies or mixed. The maximum men’s handicap is 28 and for ladies it is 36. All participants will receive coffee and a bacon roll in the morning, plus a meal after play. Entry is £200 per team with all proceeds going to support the three charities.

Caroline Swindin, Corporate Fundraiser for St Barnabas Hospice, said:

“We are delighted to be one of Rilmac’s chosen charities for this year’s Golf Day, and hope everyone attending enjoys the event.

“The money raised for our Hospice at this event will go a long way in helping us deliver specialist, end-of-life care to people in Lincolnshire living with a life-limiting or terminal illness and their families and carers.”

Golfers can enjoy refreshments, kindly donated by Market Rasen Tesco, at the halfway house at hole nine. There will also be a raffle during the day.

Rob Harris, Head of Business Development at Rilmac, said:

“Rilmac are delighted to be hosting our Charity Golf Day at Market Rasen in support of three fantastic charities. We hope the day will be a great success and we can raise as much money as possible.”

Gary Burr, Fundraising Manager at British Heart Foundation, said:

“We are very grateful that Rilmac have chosen the British Heart Foundation (BHF) as one of their chosen charities for this event. Events like this will raise vital funds towards the life-saving research that the BHF carries out across the country.

“We fund over £100m of research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases, along with the conditions connected to them. This funding is only made possible by the generosity of the public, so we would like to say a big thank you to Rilmac for joining us in our fight to beat heartbreak forever.”

James Beeby, Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said:

“We are hugely grateful to Rilmac for organising the Golf Day and choosing Prostate Cancer UK as one of their three charities.

Golf is a great fit for Prostate Cancer UK but sadly this disease is not out of bounds. One in eight men will be affected by prostate cancer in their lifetime in the UK, so this is a disease that exists in every golf club. We need to drive home this hugely important message to men and their families and this Golf Day is the perfect platform to do that.”
