Celebrities help Barkway Golf Club raise over £16,000 for Herts Air Ambulance

Golfers raised over £16,000 at Barkway Park’s sixth annual charity golf day. Attendees on the day included retired England cricketer Darren Gough, Gogglebox’s George Gilbey and Saracens and England rugby player Alex Goode.

Prizes donated by local business helped bring the total raised over the last six years up to £82,013.00.

Event organiser, Sue Akers, said: “We are thrilled with the result - it was such a great day and everyone was extremely generous.”

“A big thanks to M.J. Warner of Buntingford who provided a VW car demonstration for the hole in one challenge and Concord Trophies of Hertford, who provided the trophy and medals. The Halfway House provisions were donated by Reynolds Catering, which went down a treat with the golfers! A big thank you to all the people that helped and took part on the day, including Trademark Kitchens of Royston and County Lettings from Ware, for all their support.” 

Laura Blackwell, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Community Coordinator, said: “I would just like to say a big thank you to Sue, Bruce and the members of Barkway Park Golf club for all the hard work they have put in over the years and, of course, to Barkway Park Golf Day and for choosing Herts Air Ambulance as their chosen charity.” 

“The golf day has raised an astounding £82,013 over six years, which is such a remarkable achievement and something that they should be extremely proud of.”
