Our most successful golf day to date
GM Fundraising’s latest golf day was the highest attended one in the charity’s 16 year history, raising an impressive £11,645.55 in the process for Hope House Children’s Hospices.
The golf days have become a firm fixture in the charity calendar for those companies and individuals looking for a round of golf at a prestigious venue, coupled with a great level of fun, entertainment and importantly, an opportunity to raise much needed funds for Hope House. The latest event was held at the Telford Hotel and Golf Resort Resort on 28th June, 2012.
The overall winner of the event was Promac Group, led by David Stockton-Chalk with 83 points, while Mila were the runners up on 78 points. Best individual was Joe Hague from Promac with a score of 37 points, longest drive was Sam Heaton of Ocean and nearest the pin was Nigel Hutchinson of Paddock Fabrications.
There were over 90 people at the presentation and fundraising dinner, raising a combined total of £11,645.55, helping the charity ever closer to the magic £1miilion mark. GM Fundraising are also putting the final touches to a charity bike ride across the infamous Route 66 in the USA in 2013, which will be launched in the next few months.
Gary Morton, chairman of GM Fundraising commented: “Yet again we were amazed at what we raised on the day and I cannot thank everyone enough, despite the wet start to the day. We’re already planning our next events for 2013 and the next 18 months should see us hit the £1million mark with the overwhelming support from our followers and supporters.
