Charity golf day raises £18,000 for Poole Hospital

Cheque presentation of funds raised at charity golf clubA charity golf day at Parkstone Golf Club has raised a massive £18,000 for Poole Hospital’s endoscopy department.

The event was the fourth golfing day that the club has organised in support of the hospital, raising a fantastic £57,000 over the last four years.

The golf day was held on 17 August 2012, and included an auction in the evening. The funds raised will go towards purchasing a state-of-the-art ScopeGuide for the endoscopy department, which will result in shorter procedures and enhanced patient comfort. It will also be a valuable teaching resource for staff.

With the money raised at the event, the endoscopy department now has over half the funds needed to buy a ScopeGuide, and hopes to have the equipment by the end of the year.

Mr Guy Nash, consultant colorectal surgeon at Poole Hospital, said: “We are extremely grateful for the support from the local golfing community and local businesses, who all helped to make the event such a success. The new equipment will further enhance the service provided to our patients at Poole.”

A cheque for £18,000 was presented by the general manager of Parkstone Golf Club Gary Peddie and the event organiser, Sara Havill, to Mr Nash and Sylvia Lowrey, endoscopy senior sister, at the club on Wednesday 5 September.
