Broxbourne Golf Club CofYr 2017 webBroxbourne Seniors LogoThe Broxbourne Seniors, a golf section that play at Cheshunt Park Golf Centre, are supporting us after the Seniors Captain Phil Popham chose us as their Charity of the Year. This follows on from the partnership in 2016 when former Captain Danny Deveney nominated to support us after learning about our work supporting unpaid carers from another Carers in Hertfordshire supporter.

Danny said: "It's been a pleasure supporting Carers in Hertfordshire during my time as Seniors Captain. I know what a positive difference the charity makes to the lives of unpaid carers. Two of our members have previously been carers and have told me about how good the charity was to them."

As part of the fundraising there was a Captain's Day on September 7th at Cheshunt Park Golf Centre, Cheshunt, and a wonderful £721 was raised. Danny said: "I was quite overwhelmed by the generosity of our members considering how small the group is. The good news is that the incoming Captain Phil Popham has chosen to continue supporting Carers in Hertfordshire during 2016/17. Hopefully we will do even better on your behalf next year." 

Current Captain Phil said: “I decided to support Carers in Hertfordshire because the charity was helpful and supportive to me after my wife died in 2013. I had been caring for her for several years and the charity provided me with excellent bereavement support.”

He continued: “I’m looking forward to a busy and successful year as Captain and if carers or others want to join our section, they can, as new members are always very welcome. Golf can be a great release for someone in a caring role as there is tremendous camaraderie and we support each other. Plus it is great exercise!” 

 

Hertsmere Mayor webHertmere Borough Council -  We are delighted that the Mayor of Hertsmere for 2017/18, Cllr Charles Goldstein, has chosen to support Carers in Hertfordshire as one of the two charities he will be raising funds for whilst Mayor.

Cllr Goldstein was inaugurated as Mayor at the annual council meeting on May 17th 2017. He said: “I’m looking forward to my year as Mayor and representing the residents of Hertsmere as their first citizen. It is a great honour.”

He continued: “I have chosen to support Carers in Hertfordshire as my Charity of the Year because of their excellent work to support unpaid carers. I have learnt a lot about the thousands of carers that live in Hertsmere and across Hertfordshire. I hope to be able to raise the profile of carers and the need to support them better. I will also be fundraising for Carers in Hertfordshire so that they can provide more free support to them.

“I was particularly touched to hear about children looking after a loved one at home. These children are missing out on every day opportunities many children take for granted. So I am looking forward to creating opportunities to help identify and get support for more Young Carers in the coming year.”
The other charity Cllr Goldstein is supporting is national charity, Norwood, which provides care and services to vulnerable children and their families with learning disabilities and special educational needs.

The first big event planned is the Mayor’s Charity Golf Day on Wednesday 27th September 2017. This event takes place at the stunning Hartsbourne Country Club in Bushey, a private members club with a course of 27 holes set in over 180 acres of manicured and mature parkland.

Linda Cudmore, our Community Fundraising Lead, said: “We value this partnership as it will help us raise the profile of hidden carers in our communities. Many carers are not accessing any help or support and so by working closely with Mayor Goldstein and with Norwood I am confident we will reach many more unpaid family and friend carers. To support extra carers we need donations from supporters and we are delighted that Mayor Cllr Goldstein has some exciting fundraising events planned.”

Cllr Goldstein was first elected to Hertsmere Borough Council in 2006 and he has served on different committees and been portfolio holder for planning, housing, performance and community safety.
