Jewish Blind & Disabled’s annual ‘Friends of JBD Golf Day’ raised over £33,000 for the charity.
Organised by Lloyd Botchin together with his golf committee, the Golf Day took place at Hartsbourne Country Club in Bushey. Over 80 golfers teed off in aid of the UK’s only charity providing 24/7 housing and support for Jewish adults with physical disabilities and/or vision impairments.
This was Lloyd’s ninth JBD Golf Day, which he originally set up to thank the charity for the support they gave his late parents, Shirley and Max, who were the first tenants to move into their Cecil Rosen Court development in Bushey.
As well as playing a round of golf on Hartsbourne’s beautiful course, guests enjoyed a breakfast and a three-course lunch, plus a lively auction and raffle. The golf committee members were Lloyd, his brother Spencer Botchin, Jeremy Doltis, Steve Crawford, Craig Faugh, Darren Spevick and Stewart Block.
Lisa Wimborne, JBD Chief Executive, said:
‘I’d like to thank Lloyd Botchin, and the rest of the fundraising committee for their phenomenal effort in bringing together such a successful and enjoyable event. Demand for our services has never been greater, these much-needed funds will support our ambitious plans to grow and develop to meet increasing demand from the community.’
The winner of the best team was Team Doltis: Jeremy Doltis, Ben Doltis, Matt Cooper and Simon Berg, while the best player prize went to Matt Cooper. JBD would like to thank our sponsors New Concept Furnishing, Galliard Homes and the Cecil Rosen Foundation.
