The women’s section of Machynys Golf Club held a fundraising event during the club’s opening week last August, which included a daily raffle and auction.
During the event, they raised over £4,000 for the Urology Department and Breast Care Unit at Prince Philip Hospital in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire. Checks for £2,000 were given to both consultant urologist Mr Ng from the Department of Urology and Mr Holt, Trustee of the Prince Philip Hospital Breast Care Unit Fund.
“During our open house week in August (as in 2020), we were able to take advantage of the generosity of our visitors and hold a daily raffle and four-ball auction at some of the best golf courses in the country. .
“We raised just over £4,000 last year and a further £4,500 this year and were delighted to be able to offer the Urology Department and Breast Care Unit donations of £2,000 each in 2020 and again in 2021.
“We felt it was important to support causes that work within our community, and both departments do amazing work.”
Consultant urologist Mr Ng said: “We are extremely grateful to the Women’s Section of Machynys for their continued support and wonderful donations. Charitable donations enable us to purchase items in addition to what the NHS can provide to benefit Hywel Dda University Health Board patients.
