A CHARITY golf day has allowed a funeral directors to present the Farleigh Hospice Outreach Project (HOP) with a cheque for �5,000.

Independent family funeral directors Daniel Robinson and Sons, which has a branch in Great Dunmow, held its eighth charity day at Colne Valley Golf Club.

“The much needed money will go towards the running cost of the HOP bus.”

Members of the public can visit the bus and chat with qualified Farleigh Hospice staff about their personal circumstance if it is bereavement through cancer, a recent diagnosis, possible symptoms or living with a family member who has cancer.

Managing director of Daniel Robinson and Sons Gary Neill said: “The HOP bus offers a fantastic service in our local community so we are thrilled to be able to help them with this cheque.”
