Charity Events


A CHARITY golf day was held on Saturday May 13th to raise money in memory of a 10-year-old boy.

Alfie Hyett died in 2016 following a tragic accident which, a county coroner ruled, followed an 'act of childhood curiosity'.

His bereaved family were helped by the charity 4Louis which donate memory boxes to hospitals to give to parents after they have lost a child.

The contents of the box help families to find their own way through the grief and contain two teddy bears, a hand printing kit, a box for a lock of hair, a glass angel, a story book, a balloon and seeds to plant.

Each box is tailored to the age of the baby or child lost and costs approximately £30 to produce and distribute. 

To raise money for the charity, Alfie's father, Nick Hyett, and other family members organised a charity golf day at Brampton Golf Course in Madley that members of the club proudly took part.

Mr Hyett said: "For such an unknown charity, they have been an enormous help and I wanted to raise awareness of the charity and help other parents.”

The day raised over £3,000

ANDY'S DONE IT AGAIN !

Below is just two of the fantastic charities that Andy works hard for on behalf of the members, he is undoubtedly a value member of the club. 



Fundraiser for The County Air Ambulance
 
Sunday 5th of July Saw our Presentation of a Cheque for £1200.00 raised at the Herefords Welsh Social Club. Patrick Easterbrook our young Bar man had his locks cut off by Local Barber Nicky Edwards in a bid to raise money for the County Air Ambulance, a cause close to our hearts at the Welsh Club. Along with a raffle and sponsorship the members collected an amazing sum of £1200 in just two weeks. The club will continue to raise funds for this worthy cause.

PROSTATE CANCER TESTING

 Each test costs in excess of £20 and are not state funded.  

 

We are extremely grateful to Hereford Lions who have agreed to fund the testing and to Mo Yarwood and her 3 nurses who carried out the tests.

If caught early there is an extremely good chance of making a full recovery, these tests are therefore extremely important.

We hope to carry out further testing in December, so look out for the signs advertising them.

FUNDS RAISED FOR HOSPICE

 

 Alan & Gareth Davies organised a skittle competition featuring teams that play at the club and some of Gwyn`s relatives who joined us for the evening.

 

The idea was to raise money for the Hospice and to present it to them in the name of  Gwyn Davies. The evening was a great success with some good food to round it off.

 

Andy Butts won the raffle, but rather than take the prize he used it as a prize for a raffle the following night and made an additional £180+.

 

The total raised was £438 and the Management Committee agreed to top it up to £500. Well done to everyone who helped organise the evening, sold draw tickets or took part.
