Hockey club donates hundreds of pounds to @CRY_UK


Richmond Hockey Club banner

Players from Richmond Hockey Club have made a donation of £250 to Tom’s Fund and CRY.

A group of veteran players arrange a social golf day each year and once all costs have been met and prizes awarded the remaining balance is given to a charity.

This year Claire and Paul’s next door neighbour, Sheila King, who knew Tom, selected Cardiac Risk in the Young. She said: “Many of the players have young children and strongly support the work being done by CRY”.

Her husband, Peter King, originally organised the golf day but sadly died some years ago. The day’s memorial cup is played in his name.

Claire said: “We really appreciate Sheila thinking of us on such a day. We’d like to thank Sheila and all at Richmond Hockey Club for making such a generous donation.”

The funds will help to ensure further free heart screenings can take place for those aged 14-35 in west London. For details of this year’s event in Ealing on November 9, please go to the ‘Book Appointment’ section here.
