Golfer achieves charity challenge for HCF

Golfer Will Baxter took on a challenge to help raise funds for HCF’s Go4it Fund. The charitable fund managed by Hertfordshire Community Foundation was set up to help people overcome adversity and was founded in memory of Hunsdon businessman Ivan Purdie
Will was challenged during the coronavirus lockdown to score a two on the 186-yard par three and was not allowed to shave or cut his hair until he did.

With the hole being the fourth hardest on the par 71 Dunmow Road course, it took Will, who plays off a handicap of 6, almost 40 unsuccessful attempts.

His efforts and his sponsors have helped the Just Giving fundraiser to its £50,000 target, which will go a long way to helping local families in need.
