Captain's Charity 2017

The Club Captain, Phil Schiaffino, and Ladies’ Captain, Ros Fenney, have decided that they will have a joint Charity in 2017.

Phil gave his reasons for choosing Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court:-

‘I have seen much suffering, heartache and pain first hand in my life, from losing my step father when I was just 16, to as recently as last year when I lost my dear and close friend Bill Power (Club Captain 2013).

Although neither were directly involved with the Sue Ryder Hospice, I have recognised and appreciated first hand what an amazing job all involved with the charity do for other people. On a recent visit to Leckhampton Hospice I was privileged to witness how selflessly all the nursing staff, management and directors commit themselves to each and every patient taken under their wing.

They are cared for with such compassion and dignity. This is not just a job but something they all find hugely rewarding. It really was a day I will always remember and one which I am not embarrassed to admit, brought me to tears. Listening to some of the amazing stories the director, Elise Hoadley, and male nurse, Neil Annis, shared with me was very moving.

I have heard many stories from various friends and fellow golf members about how they have been touched by the professionalism in which their own dear ones have been treated whilst in the care of the staff and nurses at Sue Ryder. Taking all this into account has only strengthened my decision to support such a worthy charity as this.’

Ros Fenney said:-

‘Phil and I spent a morning at the hospice in November, a very emotional and humbling experience and one I will never forget. The care and support given to patients and their families is very special.’
