More than £25,000 was raised by a charity golf day at the Oxfordshire to support the Florence Nightingale Hospice.

The event sparked significant interest, with 34 teams taking part.

As an incentive to encourage maximum support for the charity, a £10,000 prize was offered to any participant who hit a hole-in-one at the fifth hole during the competition.

Comedian, actor and impressionist Bobby Davro and entertainer Kenny Lynch were there to support the efforts and provided the entertainment.

Club captain Marcus Simmons said: “We are proud to support such a worthwhile cause and pleased to have raised a significant amount for the Florence Nightingale Hospice.”

The winning team was made up of Roger Longshaw, Kevin Maguire, Mark Shimmin and Bertie Bright, who are all members of the club.

The hospice provides accessible and free-of-charge palliative care within the community.

Lindsey Fealey, from the Florence Nightingale Hospice, said: “We are very grateful that the captain of the Oxfordshire has chosen to support our work by organising this fantastic event.”
