Halesworth Dementia Carers’ Fund

Golf Day
On 30th May several members of the HDCF Committee met at the Golf Club to receive a cheque for £6,700 resulting from the golf competition. We are so grateful to Halesworth Golf Club, and to John Giles and Sara Higgins who worked so hard to make this happen. As reported last month, we are also grateful to all our sponsors, and all the very kind people who helped raise this figure. While some expenses need to come off we are still left with a magnificent amount that will go so far in helping us continue our work.
