Kind hearted members of Darwen Golf Club recently celebrated a milestone anniversary with a generous donation to support patients receiving cancer treatment.


On achieving its 125th anniversary, Club members held a celebratory dinner at Ewood Park during which £1,000 was raised to support the Chemotherapy Unit at The Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital.


Darwen Golf Club Secretary, Ian Geogarty stated: ‘The evening was a tremendous success and to be able to make this contribution to help an important department at the Hospital has delighted us all.


“The Chemotherapy unit does a fantastic job in caring for and supporting people in need of specialist treatment.”


“We’d like to thank the many local businesses and club members who donated raffle prizes for the special anniversary event.”
