Stunning sunshine and 19 teams of eager golfers provided the perfect start to David and Wendy Paton’s fundraising day on 7th September at the Hill Valley Golf Club, Whitchurch in aid of the Orthopaedic Institute Charity.
Raising a total of £2,907 towards the Arthroplasty Research Fund David said “During the last 2 years Wendy and I have had a new hip and a new knee and wanted to raise money as a thank you to RJAH for their excellent care and support. During 2019/2O – 1380 hips and 1370 knees were replaced at the Oswestry Hospital and all the fundraising on this day will go to help the Orthopaedic Institute in supporting further studies of advancement in care and research for hip and knee patients.”
Debra Alexander, fundraiser at the Orthopaedic Institute Charity was delighted “we are so grateful to David and Wendy for all their hard work in organising the day and attracting so many generous players and sponsors. I know how much time and effort goes into bringing such a day together and I cannot thank them enough. I would also personally like to thank all those who took part and sponsored the day, including Macdonald Hill Valley Golf Club and their professional Rob Ashbrook plus one of David and Wendy’s friends – Doreen Manning who very kindly registered the players and took charge of the finances.”
