Charity work at Forest Pines Hotel & Golf Resort
Forest Pines Hotel & Golf Resort work with a couple of
different charities. On a local level, we support the Sister
Blanchard Foundation for Cancer Research UK. This was set up in
memory of Brenda Blanchard, a former sister at Scunthorpe General
Hospital, after she sadly passed away from breast cancer in
Brenda was a leisure member at Forest Pines and attended some of
our functions such as New Year's Eve celebrations. She will be
sadly missed by all staff at Forest Pines.
On a national level, Forest Pines Hotel & Golf Resort
support Help for Heroes.
How have we raised money?
We have recently provided the foundation with a cheque for
£1,000. We have also organised several 'Strictly Sparkle' events,
based on Brenda's love of Strictly Come Dancing.
Staff and gym members took part in the Rat Race Dirty Weekend's
full mudder challenge, a 20 mile assault course with over 200
obstacles, and raised £1,000 for Help for Heroes.
Last year the staff completed a rowathon for Help for
Luxurious One-Night Breaks on Loch Lomond
