Lancashire law firm Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall Solicitors has bolstered the charity coffers of Rossendale Hospice by £6,500 after the success of its latest charity golf day.

The annual event, which WHN has been running for 11 years, saw 22 teams tee off at Rossendale Golf Club to complete 18 holes in aid of the hospice. WHN scooped the top spot to secure the winning team, closely followed by James Killelea & Co Ltd with 96 points, while the team from Peel Land & Property came in at third place.Golfers were treated to sunshine and picturesque views of the surrounding Pennines during their round of golf, before enjoying drinks and a meal afterwards. Prizes including a luxury make-up bag and credit card holder from Mulberry UK and a spa package at Mellor-based Stanley House Hotel and Spa were also raffled off to rack-up additional funds.

David McCann, senior partner at WHN Solicitors, said: “Over the last ten years we have handed over £47,000 to the hospice from fundraising at our golf day, so we’re thrilled to boost the funds with the latest donation. 

“The staff at Rossendale Hospice do an amazing job so it’s a real pleasure to have been able to raise this money to support what they do. We’re committed to supporting the hospice and it’s something we’ll continue to do in the future.”
