Sunshine for St. Rocco's Golf Day
The clouds parted last Wednesday just in time for the sun to shine on St. Rocco’s Golf Day.
Fifteen teams turned out at the annual event held at Warrington Golf Club and sponsored by Rybrook Jaguar who were also offering the use of a Jaguar F-Pace for 48 hours to the golfer who achieved the longest drive and providing the prizes for the top three winning teams.
Following bacon rolls on arrival the teams went out to tee off in brilliant sunshine which stayed with them. At the end of the day it was Legal for Landlords who were the winners with Dreamscape and Solar Communications second and third respectively.

Off the course the golfers were just as generous, supporting patient care at the hospice by entering both the raffle and the silent auction as they enjoyed refreshments at the end of the day. The winner of the longest drive was Paul Keenan from the Legal for Landlords team. Paul Hulmes from Solar Communications, not only won nearest the pin but was also the highest bidder in the silent auction to win a weekend away in a cottage in Hawarth.
Rachel Ingham, Community Fundraiser from St. Rocco’s said, “Our Golf Day is a really good opportunity for people from all walks of Warrington life to come together and have a great day on and off the golf course. We’re delighted that so many businesses and organisations have chosen to support as again this year, and very pleased to welcome new ones.
“We’d like to extend our thanks to all of those who took part, as well as Warrington Golf Club, our sponsors Rybrook Jaguar and to those companies who sponsored holes on the course. Having this kind of support from local businesses and organisations makes a real difference in helping us to care for our patients and their families.”
The date is already set for next year’s event – Wednesday 11th September. If you would like to register your interest please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
