Rollits Golf Day Well Above Par!

Rollits has celebrated 23 amazing years of fundraising for Dove House Hospice and the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign by raising over £105,000 for the two charities through our annual golf day. 

The golf day, which took part on Thursday 7 July 2011, involved a round of golf at the picturesque Brough Golf Course, with money raised throughout the day from 32 team entries and sponsorship from a wide range of local organisations as well as a raffle organised by the two charities.

This year 128 golfers took part in the competition and the winners were the Needlers team made up of Alastair Needler, Jonathan Kay, Nick Sangwin and Stephen Jordan with a score of 122 (14 under par). 

Next year`s competition will be held on Thursday, 5 July 2012.

Brian Deehan, Chairman of the East Yorkshire Branch of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign said:

"A huge thanks goes to Pat Coyle, Client Relations Director at Rollits LLP and the team at Rollits and those who supported the day to make it a huge success. without the continued support of Rollits we would not have achieved the level of progress we have over the last two decades. A Family Care Co-ordinator to help people with muscle-wasting disease was employed in Hull for the first time ever this year and there are now over 100 active research projects developing potential treatments for these devastating conditions."

Sarah Cusick, acting director of income development at Dove House Hospice, said:

"We are incredibly grateful to Pat and the team at Rollits for supporting the hospice with this event. We`ve seen golfers take to the course in full sun and torrential rain and even then they all say what an excellent and fun day they`ve had thanks to the great organisation of the day. The money Rollits has raised has made such a difference at the hospice and we hope to continue working with them on this event for many years to come!"

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.
