Chesterfield-based Handelsbanken’s Phil Walker and Andy North have completed a massive 72 holes of golf in one day to support Ashgate Hospicecare.

Branch manager Phil, right, and corporate manager Andy, left, walked around 20 miles around Chesterfield Golf Club on Monday as they took on their golfing challenge to raise money for the hospice’s £1m Urgent Bed Appeal.

The bank has pledged to raise £5,000 for the cause with on-going fundraising over two years.

Phil Walker said, “We are proud to support Ashgate Hospicecare’s bed appeal.”

The Chesterfield-based hospice needs £1m to keep its inpatient ward running at full capacity. Donations are welcome at the JustGiving page https://www.justgiving.com/handelsbanken-chesterfield/.
