Our annual John Parrott ‘Golf Classic’ golf day took place on Friday 21st June 2019 at West Derby Golf Club. This is a key event in our annual fundraising calendar raising an incredible £9,800 for the Hospice. The weather was perfect with sunshine and blue skies for our Golfers who took part playing 18 holes with prizes for ‘Nearest The Pin’ and ‘Straightest Drive’.
In total 15 teams took part and all involved had a great day - we even had one team member get a hole-in-one!

Following the golf there was an evening presentation dinner with awards for the winning team and runners up team and a live auction with some fabulous items up for offer, including signed sports memorabilia, overnight hotel stays and beauty packages along with a wide range of amazing raffle prizes.
A special thank you goes to John Parrott, for his continued support in hosting the event as Patron of Woodlands Hospice.
We would also like to thank GG Glass for sponsoring the ‘Putting Green’, Alliance Print for sponsoring the programme, West Derby Golf Club, those who attended the evening dinner or who donated auction and raffle prizes or sponsored elements of the day along with all the volunteers who gave their time making this such an enjoyable and successful day.
