Over £3,500 has been raised for Brain Research UK by supporters of popular Wolverhampton golf venue, 3 Hammers Golf Complex.
Golfers teed off during a charity fundraising day in aid of the UK charity. Which has been funding the best science for over 50 years to achieve the greatest impact for people affected by neurological conditions. Helping them live better, longer lives. The event was organised by Will Dunn, PGA Golf Instructor at the Complex. To raise money in memory of Will’s cousin, Etta Hilditch. Some 84 people took to the greens at the award winning golf venue in Coven. Including Etta’s parents, relatives and friends, plus supporters of the Complex. Etta, from Featherstone, sadly passed away in November 2020 from a brain haemorrhage, aged just 22.
Chris and Matt Pearce from Cheslyn Hay won the charity golf day. Which consisted of a golfer and non golfer format. Where the golfer tees off and plays approach shots. With the non golfer doing the putting.
Over 100 attended a presentation in the venue’s Bistro afterwards. Where a BBQ was laid on with plenty of food and drink. A combination of the golf day, donations and a prize raffle raised the impressive £3,500 for the brain research charity.
Thanks go to all that supported the day including Stoma Building Control, Featherstone Fencing Ltd, Lichtgitter, Bridge Carpentry Ltd, Foxhills Country Club, Meadow Springs Country & Leisure Park and Experience Days.
Etta’s Dad Steve said “In memory of our daughter Etta, and in support of Brain Research UK, we offer our massive thanks to all at 3 Hammers. And especially Will for putting on a fantastic day. As a family, we were overjoyed at the turn out. The weather was brilliant, yet some of the golf, not so brilliant! Although Etta would be looking down with her usual big smile on her face, and proud of everyone. Thanks to all who supported, and the monies raised will be greatly appreciated by the charity. We hope to run the event again next year”.
