Nicholas O’Hara Funeral Directors annual charity golf day was held on the 4th July at Remedy Oak Golf club in aid of the Steve Bernard Foundation. Landing on this date the company gave the day an American theme with prizes for the best dressed American, team names representing NFL teams and American themed goodie bags for the players.

88 players teed off the event and a great day was had by all, but as well as the competition and fun element, the day also helped raise money for the companies charity of the year. The SBF was chosen as the family business wanted to support a local based charity whose work in the sporting field is just phenomenal.

The charity have raised over £600,000 since its formation following the tragic death of Stevie B, whose passion in life was sport. They have supported all types of sporting projects from schools, grassroot clubs, elite athletes including Olympians, county, national and world champions, Invictus games medallists and hundreds of disability athletes.

Anthony and Jane O’Hara were proud to present to Tony Bernard, Steve’s father and trustee to the charity, a cheque for £12,647.33 at their Canford Heath funeral home. Anthony said “we are always so overwhelmed by the support we receive for our golf day, a huge thank you to the businesses that sponsored holes, competitions, gave prizes, the players and also those who supported our online raffle, auctions and gave donations. We had to turn away teams due to the demand of supporting us and also playing at the prestigious Remedy Oak course. We know the charity will do great things with the money and if we can have helped one child enjoy sport, or one team have the equipment they need, or help an elite athlete achieve their goal, then we will feel really proud to have been a small part of that”.

The family business based in Wimborne, Verwood, West Moors, Canford Heath and Westbourne are also supporting the charity in numerous ways including making a donation from each pre-paid funeral plan sold during the year. The golf day will again be held next year at Remedy Oak and planning will soon be under way to create another special event.
