Leading dairy manufacturer Woodlands Dairy, will be hosting their annual golf day in aid of St Francis Hospice on 11 and 12 May this year at the St Francis Links.

Three celebrity golfers will participate including former national and Springbok rugby player, Naas Botha, as well as Patrick Symcox and David Richardson, former South African international cricketers. Richardson also had a stint as CEO of the International Cricket Council.

Says Mandla Charlie of Woodlands Dairy and First choice: “The Woodlands Dairy Golf Day combines fundraising with networking opportunities, fun, entertainment, and prize incentives, which create a positive and engaging environment for participants.”

All funds raised will go towards St Francis Hospice, a non-profit organisation that provides palliative care and support to patients and their families. “Everyone’s support makes a significant difference in the lives of patients and their families during what can be a challenging time. We’re helping to ensure that individuals facing life-limiting illnesses receive the care they need in a compassionate and dignified manner. Those interested can also add a donation to St Francis Hospice at Shop First Choice,” he adds.
