Golf club donates to children's fund
The Swampies Golf Club, which plays at the Everglades Country Club, Woy Woy, has donated $1000 to the Gosford Hospital Childrens' Fund.
President Mr John Lewis presented the cheque to Ms Jan Richens, fundraising and donations manager for Central Coast Local Health District, at a ceremony on December 20.
Ms Richens thanked the golfers from Swampies Golf Club for their continued support of the paediatric services.
"Donations to our children's fund enable us to support areas such as the children's ward, physiotherapy and occupational therapy, outpatient clinics and Kid's Corner in Wyong and Gosford Emergency Departments," she said.
"All donations received by Central Coast Local Health District for any of our services and facilities remain on the Coast and go directly towards patient treatment and care."
The Swampies club committee decided to make the donation after club treasurer Mr Warwick Ford announced that the club, with a membership of 40 players, ended the 2016 season in a strong position.
