Raising funds for local charities
Rollits is hosting its 28th annual charity golf day on Thursday7 July 2016.
The event, which has become a firm fixture in the local business calendar, will take place at Brough Golf Club and will raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and Dove House Hospice.
Since the inaugural event more than £120,000 has been raised for the chosen charities.
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.
Speaking ahead of the event, Rollits Senior Partner, RichardField said: "It's hard to believe that the event has been running for so long but it's wonderful to be able to raise funds and at the same time provide a great day out for all those concerned with some healthy competition too.
"As this is our 175th Anniversary Year we are looking to get lots of businesses involved and all of the money donated will be going to two fantastic local charities, so we'd love to attract a variety of teams from across the region and see as many people enter as possible."
Entry to the competition will cost £240 per team and includes green fees, a three course meal and wine after the round.
