UHNM Charity Golf Day returns for third and biggest year

Local celebrities, businesses and members of the public have all come together at UHNM Charity’s biggest-ever Golf Day.

The fundraising event, now in its third consecutive year, helped to raise more than £11,000 to help UHNM Charity improve patient care and experience at University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust (UHNM).

Teams of four took part in a shotgun round of golf at the picturesque Barlaston Golf Club, followed by food and evening of entertainment on Friday 14 June.

Lisa Thomson, Director of Communications and Charity at UHNM said: “It was exciting to be back at Barlaston Golf Club for our third and biggest-ever UHNM Charity Golf Day. The weather was kind and the atmosphere with our teams was just amazing. So many people have put in so much hard work and I hope everybody had a special day.

“Every penny raised from our amazing total will go towards helping improve the experience of our patients and their environment, helping the charity top provide over and above what the NHS normally does.”

The event, which was sponsored by LD Property and WDPS Stoke Ltd, also had a guest of honour- former Wales international footballer Dean Saunders.

Dean said: “I’m delighted to attend in benefit of a great cause, we know how good the NHS. Barlaston was a tough course but lovely, with lots of ditches and lots of water.”

The golf day was also attended by local sportspeople including boxer Nathan ‘Hitman’ Heaney and former Stoke City FC midfielder Carl Dickinson.

Nathan Heaney said: “The work of UHNM and UHNM Charity is amazing. My daughter was recently diagnosed with colitis, so we spent a lot of time up at Royal Stoke, so I’ve seen first-hand the incredible work that they do.”

Carl Dickinson said: “It’s always a fantastic day out to support UHNM Charity. UHNM do a lot of work for our local population and any way we can get involved is a good day to be part of.”
