Business tees up for charity golf day in July

Yorkshire businesses will be competing on the golf course when they tee off for charity in a tournament organised by Hull commercial law firm Rollits, on Thursday, 2 July 2015 at Brough Golf Club.

Now in its 27th year, the tournament is being held to raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and Dove House Hospice, and always attracts a variety of teams from across the region.

The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is the leading UK charity focusing on muscle disease. It has pioneered the search for treatments and cures for over 50 years, and is dedicated to improving the lives of all children and adults affected by muscle disease.  It funds world-class research to find effective treatments and cures; provides free practical and emotional support; campaigns to raise awareness and bring about change and awards grants towards the cost of specialist equipment, such as powered wheelchairs.

Dove House Hospice provides specialist palliative care to adults over 18 years old with a life limiting illness. All of the services the hospice provide are free of charge to patients and their families. Each year the hospice receives limited funding - the rest of the funding comes from the general public and other fundraising initiatives within the community.

Rollits' Partner Steve Trynka said: "The Rollits Golf Day at Brough is always very popular amongst local businesses. Over the years we have raised around £120,000 and in the course of the day provide some friendly competition between Yorkshire's business people while raising funds for two extremely worthy causes."

The competition is a medal event for teams of four, with the best two net scores on each hole to count. The tournament is for teams of four and costs £240. This includes green fees as well as a three course meal plus wine after the round.

Team places are available and any teams interested in entering should contact Pat Coyle of Rollits on 01482 337318 or email pat.coyle@rollits.com  for further details and an entry form.
