BCW selected as Lanhydrock Golf Club's (Senior Section) charity of the year
From this April, bowel cancer awareness month, we are delighted to announce that we have been selected by the Senior’s Section captain at Lanhydrock Golf Club, Bryan Hancock, as their charity of the year. On Thursday the 18th of April, the club will be hosting a fundraising golf day, including an opportunity for us to raise awareness of bowel cancer to their members.
Bryan said: “Having been through bowel cancer myself, I’m fully aware just how important it is to catch it early and urge others not to sit on any symptoms or ignore screening advice. I wanted to select a local charity to support and given the important work Bowel Cancer West do, they were the obvious choice. Thanks to some wonderful NHS staff, I'm grateful to still be here playing the sport I love. We are delighted to be able to support the charity and will be hosting a series of events through the year.”
Leading up to the day, the club are running a silent auction with some fantastic prizes which is open to anyone to enter. Starting bids for the prizes are below the market value and you will be supporting a great cause. For a full list of prizes and details of how to make a bid, please click here
