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
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
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.
