Chesfield Downs Golf and Country Club Seniors Section Captain Brian Feaver has chosen to support us during his year as Captain. Chesfield Downs Golf Club Seniors Section Charity of the Year 2018 partnership

Brian said: “I was looking for a local charity to support alongside a national charity and when I found out about the work of Carers in Hertfordshire it was the perfect fit. Some of our golfers care for a loved one so it’s great we can do something to make a difference to support a charity that can help them and other carers when they need it.”

To help raise funds the club has collection boxes and there will be a Charity Day at Chesfield Downs Golf and Country Club, in Graveley, on Wednesday 27th June 2018.

The Charity Day is open to all golfers to enjoy a round of 18 holes on this beautiful course with some challenges that can catch you off guard such as a water hazard and bunkers.

Tickets are £25 each and include a two-course lunch and hot drink on arrival. Teams of four are welcome and if you are not in a team you will be matched with others.

The event takes place from 8am and if you are interested in booking a place please email Brian at or call 07792 793246.

Rod, a golfer from the section who has been a carer to various family members, said: “I was delighted when Brian chose Carers in Hertfordshire as one of his charities for his year as Captain. They offered me a vital support and specialist knowledge helping me to give my son and my parents the best quality of life possible. Carers in Hertfordshire provide a wealth of information as well as ensures carers never need to feel alone or unappreciated. Many of us will need a carer at some point so let’s support this great charity as much as we can.”

Linda Cudmore, our Community Fundraising Lead, said: “We are pleased that Brian has chosen to support carers during his year as Captain. This community support helps raise the profile of carers and will assist us in ensuring even more people in the area, that are looking after someone who is ill, elderly or disabled know about our free help available to them. I have spoken with Club members, who are now accessing support from us. I’m positive if you want to join the section or the golf day you will receive a warm welcome and possibly make good friends.”

Studies have shown that playing golf can reduce stress, improve mental and physical health, and help prevent chronic diseases such as heart disease.
