A donation of £2,000 was handed over to the Friends of Clitheroe Hospital when Clitheroe Golf Club’s Lady Captain, Pat Rees, presented a cheque to the the charity’s chairman, Mrs Brenda Dixon, at the Clitheroe Community Hospital.

Mrs Dixon expressed her thanks to the ladies of Clitheroe Golf Club for their generosity and said the money would be a huge help in allowing the Friends of Clitheroe Hospital to continue their work both in helping the patients feel more at home while in hospital and also in funding items of equipment that the National Health Service is not able to provide.
