Andy Williams has just become Captain of Ben Rhydding Golf Club and has decided to support Airedale Hospital & Community Charity for the duration of his captaincy.
Ben Rhydding Golf Club is a small, volunteer-run club. Each year, the club chooses a charity to support and this year the club has decided to support Airedale Hospital and Community Charity, the official NHS charity for Airedale NHS Foundation Trust.
The club has a range of events planned to raise funds including regular quiz nights and a charity golf day.
“I chose Airedale Hospital and Community Charity as supporting a local charity is important to me. I’m really pleased to be doing this for a good local cause.
“Everyone at the club has been involved with Airedale hospital in one way or another: children have been born and people have been treated here over the years.
“It’s a very charitable club and everyone is definitely up for a few charity golf matches with the Airedale lot next year. I’ve given myself a target to raise £5k over the year and I can’t wait to get started! We have lots of plans that people will be able to get involved in to support a great charity.”
Jodie Hearnshaw, manager at Airedale Hospital and Community Charity, said:
“We’re extremely grateful to Andy and everyone at Ben Rhydding Golf Club for choosing to support us in 2023. Any funds that they raise will make a real difference to patients and their loved ones at Airedale Hospital.
“On behalf of everyone at Airedale, thank you! We’re really looking forward to working with Andy and the team; they’ve got some exciting events planned.”
