Yorkshire businesses raise 4,000 for charity at Rollits golf day

Yorkshire businesses helped to raise over £4,000 for charity at our golf day in July.

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 Campaign, who are actively campaigning to provide specialist care for, in particular, children in this region with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy whose current life expectancy is over 10 years less than those in other parts of the UK, and Dove House Hospice, in Hull, which offers palliative care to adults with life limiting illnesses. 

The winners of this year`s competition, with a winning score of 121 (15 under par) was one of the teams from Rollits -Richard Field, Donald Robertson, Chris Makepeace and Mark Bentley.

Senior Partner Steve Trynka 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 are 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 well over £100,000 over the years.

Next year is the 25th Anniversary of the competition, and will be held at Brough on Thursday, 4 July 2013.
