Monday 8th April 2024

All day today, for twenty four whole hours, our full clinical running costs have been donated in loving memory of Tom Flowers with a ‘Pay for a Day’ donation.

Below we share the lovely words of Tom’s wife Brenda:

“My husband, Tom Flowers spent the last three and a half weeks of his life being cared for by the staff at St Cuthbert’s Hospice. He and I could not have wished for better people to look after him. I cannot praise the staff highly enough.
Tom’s main love, apart from his family, was golf. He was an enthusiastic golfer not only as a player but also as an administrator. In 1989, he and other members of Durham Round Table, raised sufficient money for the Hospice to buy a minibus, partly through the Charity Pro Am which Tom organised and held at Brancepeth Castle Golf Club. About 50 teams took part in the event.
In 2021, Ramside Hall Golf Club hosted the first Tom Flowers Memorial Pro Am, administered by the NENW PGA which raised a significant sum of money for St. Cuthbert’s Hospice. Tom was the first Director of Golf at Ramside and later became the Secretary for the North East North West Professional Golfers Association, as well as being Durham County Captain and President. Because of this, both amateur and professional golfers he had met throughout the years, played a significant part in helping to raise funds for St Cuthbert’s Hospice. In June 2022 and 2023 Ramside Hall Golf Club once again hosted the Tom Flowers Memorial Pro Am where the proceeds, after expenses, were donated to St Cuthbert’s Hospice.
This year 2024, on Wednesday 5th June Ramside Hall Golf Club will be hosting the fourth Tom Flowers Memorial Pro Am in aid of St. Cuthbert’s Hospice and administered by the NENW PGA. Any donations towards the raffle for this event would be gratefully appreciated. Anyone wanting to enter a team into this event should contact Steve Harrison secretary of the NENW PGA on 07739186174″
We are extremely grateful for this special donation in Tom’s name.
