Gerard Boitelle and Richard Blackburn present a cheque for £1060 from Howley Hall Golf Club

Generous Senior Section members from Howley Hall Golf Club, near Morley, were inspired to fundraise for Candlelighters after reading a Yorkshire Post feature about fellow member, Gerard Boitelle, whose family has been impacted by children’s cancer.

Since August 2015, donations have been flooding in to a special Candlelighters fund at the club, to show support of the Boitelle family, through events such as the Seniors’ Trophy, the Seniors’ Open, and Quiz Night, plus many other gifts from members.

A fantastic £1060 was raised and presented by Gerard and Richard to Nicki from Candlelighters at The Square. Thank you to everyone involved.
