Rainham businesman helps raise �10,000 at charity golf day in Warley

A Rainham businessman helped raise more than �10,000 for a Havering-atte-Bower charity.

Joe O’Sullivan organised the Tony O’Sullivan Charity Golf Day at Warley Park Golf Club recently in aid of St Francis Hospice.

Fifty-six golfers took part to honour the memory of Joe’s father, Tony O’Sullivan who was a very keen golfer and a member of the club for many years.

Tony, who lived in Hutton, received treatment from the Saint Francis Hospice at Home team.

After the day of golf more than 110 people sat down for a three course dinner, comedy entertainment, auction and raffle to raise further funds for the Havering-atte–Bower based charity.

“The fantastic help those at St Francis Hospice gave me, my mum and my sister throughout the last weeks, days, and hours of my father’s life can never be replaced.
