Hendy Ford is teeing off for the second time for Jim Monro

 

Tuesday 12th July will see the Jim Monro Memorial Golf Day return to Goodwood - and it's sponsored by Hendy Ford for the second year running.

The golf cup, organised by charity Wessex Heartbeat, takes place on the Downs Course at Goodwood in memory of the late Jim Monro, who was a world renowned heart surgeon at Southampton General Hospital. As a passionate supporter of the charity, Jim played an active role in helping to raise significant sums for various projects.

Mark Busby, Commercial Director at Hendy Ford, said: 'We are delighted to support a charity that helps so many people across the region.' Funds raised on the day will support Southampton General Hospital's Wessex Cardiac Centre, helping towards research and cutting-edge equipment.

John Munro, chief executive of Wessex Heartbeat, said: 'We are extremely grateful to Hendy Ford for sponsoring this event for a second year. The Jim Munro Memorial Golf Day is a thrilling competition for golfers on a world class course and we hope this year's competition will raise a considerable amount for vital cardiac services.'
