Raising funds for local charities
Rollits is hosting its 28th annual charity golf day on Thursday
7 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
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, Richard
Field 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.
Teams that would like to get involved should call 01482 323239
