Rugby stars tee off to raise over £7,000 for Hospice

Friday, 7 October 2016
Rugby Stars past and present came together at the annual Zak Hardaker Golf Classic raising over £7,000 for The Prince of Wales Hospice.
 
Seventeen teams battled it out at the golf event which took place on Monday 26 September at Pontefract and District Golf Club.
 
Despite the wet weather, defending champions Wakefield Trinity Wildcats came out on top winning the Zak Hardaker Trophy with 85 points. Runners up were ISC and Doosan Babcock and prizes were also awarded to individuals for nearest the pin and longest drive.
 
The teams started the day with a buffet lunch followed by team photos before the hole draw and shotgun start at 1.30pm. Following a successful day on course, teams enjoyed a three course celebratory dinner in the clubhouse, followed by prize presentations and a question and answer session with the rugby stars.
 
The evening also included an auction of two VIP rugby packages, which were kindly donated by Leeds Rhinos and raised an additional £1,600 on the night.
 
Zak Hardaker, event sponsor, was unavoidably delayed returning from Australia and was unable to attend the event but tweeted enroute “Thank you to everyone taking part today, means a lot especially when I couldn’t make it.”
 
Tracey Mearns, Partnership Development Coordinator from the Hospice said “We are absolutely delighted with the amount of money raised again this year , it costs over £7,000 per day to run the Hospice so support from events such as these enable us to continue to provide essential care and support our patients and their families. Thank you to Zak Hardaker, Gary Hetherington of Leeds Rhinos and Pontefract and District Golf Club and of course for all the teams that took part and for  their generosity throughout the day”
