Rollits charity golf day raises funds for local charities

Yorkshire businesses helped to raise over £3,000 for charity at a golf day organised by Rollits at Brough Golf Club on Thursday 7 July 21016

Businesses including MKM, Plaxton, The One Point and PPH Commercial, came together to raise funds for two local charities.

Twenty five teams took part in the charity golf event at Brough Golf Club, which raised funds for the local branch of the Muscular Dystrophy UK, who provide free care and support for babies,

children and adults affected by muscle disease, fund world-class research to find treatments and cures, provide grants towards equipment and campaign to raise awareness and bring about change, and Dove House Hospice in Hull, which offers palliative care to adults with life limiting illnesses to improve the quality of life of their patients by offering specialist care which is holistic and individually tailored.

The winners of this year's competition, with a winning score of 119 was the Strata Boys comprising Graham Fisher, Ian Jones, Wayne Holgate and Phil Tomlinson.

Speaking after the event, Richard Field, senior partner at Rollits, said: "The day always provides an excellent opportunity for some friendly competition between Yorkshire's business people while also raising funds for two extremely worthy causes. We're pleased to be able to support the two charities by presenting them with the proceeds of our golf day.

He added: "This year's tournament was once again a great success.  We had fantastic weather and excellent support from businesses around the region. Thank you to all those who entered teams, donated prizes and sponsored holes, without whom this day would not be possible."

>From its inception in 1988, the event continues to be popular with businesses throughout the region and has helped to raise in excess of £120,000 over the years.
