St. George’s Hill Golf Club – 20th March 2015
We were delighted to be involved with St George’s Hill Golf Club in their Peter Hunt Memorial Fund in aid of Friday in aid of “A Macmillan Nurse for The Royal Marsden”. They managed to raise well over £43,000 for the charity. Every year members of the club put on a day where they go around the golf course in the morning and then have a dinner for the afternoon/evening.
Even though it was a cloudy day and we couldn’t even see the solar eclipse HCWHY put on a lovely spread of our Finger Foods, as we love to help support charities. From sandwiches and wraps there was enough variety for everyone. Golfers go round the course from 8.30am until 2.00pm. We provided a little snack (or should we say feast) and drink to keep them going as they reach the halfway point of the course.

As of June 2013, there were 3,942 Macmillan nurse posts across the UK, both in hospitals and in the community.
All Macmillan nurses are registered with at least five years’ experience, including two or more years in cancer or palliative care. They have completed specialist courses in pain and symptom management, and psychological support.
Most of the nurses work in NHS hospitals or the community. A small number work in hospices and private hospitals, but do not charge for their services. As specialists they do not routinely undertake nursing care but are there to assess complex needs, give advice to other healthcare professionals and support people with cancer to understand their treatment options.
