Golfers chip in to help The Little Princess Trust

Support arrives from two clubs in Herefordshire

Golf was once famously described as the best way to spoil an otherwise enjoyable walk.

But we think the time has come for a new quote on the sport thanks to the amount of support we are receiving from the golfing community.

The new Burghill Valley Golf Club Captain Pete Griffiths announced this week that his chosen charity for the year would be The Little Princess Trust and he will soon be starting to fundraise.

This great news came two days after Rob Silcox, Principal of Silcox Financial Planning Ltd, and Matt Davies, from The Online Accountant, organised a charity competition at the Herefordshire Golf Course which also raised funds for LPT.

There was a stableford format to the competition and the winning four-ball was made up by Emyr Saer, Glyn Biffen, Brendan O’Brien and Andrew Weston.

Matt, who is pictured with Rob and LPT’s Ian Morris, thanked all those who supported the event to help a charity so close to home.

He added: "It’s great that we can support a local Hereford charity in The Little Princess Trust and without the input of colleagues, clients and friends the event wouldn't have been possible, so a massive thanks to the guys who took time off to play in what we hope is the first of a recurring event, and thanks for Wormsley golf club for hosting.

“Also a special thanks to Kate from The Beefy Boys and Max from Wye Valley Brewery for their extremely generous donations towards our list of prizes."

Phil Brace, from The Little Princess Trust, expressed his thanks to all the golfers who have ‘chipped in’ over the years to help raise valuable funds for our free wig provision service and our funding of childhood cancer research.
