Nightingale Hammerson community event raises nearly £50,000

May 18, 2017 | By | Reply More

Nightingale Hammerson has raised almost £50,000 from its annual bridge tournament and golf day, both of which took place this week.

 

Eighteen teams participated in the 34th annual golf day at Coombe Hill Golf Club on Tuesday, where 72 players battled it out to be crowned the winners. The winning team on the day was helmed by Harvey Rosen, Laurence Rosen, Jon Bartman and Martin Rosen, and the event raised funds through team entry, donations and sponsorship.

 

The 30th annual bridge tournament at Alyth Gardens saw 100 people attend and a raffle, with prizes including theatre tickets and tea at the Ritz. The tournament, run by English Bridge Union, was won by Evy Levene and Jackie Karp.

 

Funds raised from both events will be put to use in providing extra activities and initiatives at Nightingale Hammerson, which help to enhance residents’ lives and cement Nightingale Hammerson’s reputation as a first-class residential care home provider.

 

A £36 million redevelopment of Hammerson House in North London, a leading residential care home incorporating a specialist centre of excellence for dementia care, is due to start later this year.

 

Melvin Lawson, chairman of Nightingale Hammerson said: “I want to thank everyone for supporting the two events this week. We have managed to raise a fantastic amount of money which will help fund all of the extra enrichment activities that light up our residents lives.”

 

Laurence Rosen, one of the winners of the golf tournament said: “Another outstanding charity golf day in support of Nightingale Hammerson, a unique and wonderful place. Every year, around 20 teams of four are treated at Coombe Hill to an awesome golf course and amazing hospitality. This year, my family team won – but winning is incidental in a great day of camaraderie and funds for a fine cause.”
