For the last 32 years we have sponsored and organised our Charity Golf Day at the beautiful Brough Golf Club, raising almost £140,000 for two local charities, MDUK (East Yorkshire Branch) and Dove House Hospice. Unfortunately this year due to the current coronavirus pandemic and the unprecedented situation we all find ourselves in, we are unable to host the tournament due to the restrictions around social distancing, and large scale events in general.
However, we don’t like to slow down the momentum at Rollits for the things we love, especially for good causes.
We were so disappointed that we wouldn’t be able to raise funds for the charities this year - when charities need fundraising more than ever - so we have decided to run a “virtual” fundraising campaign during July and August in order to uphold our continued support and enthusiasm for our brilliant charities and the amazing things they do every day.
How to get involved:
To join in our #RollitsCharityChallenge campaign all you need to do is some form of activity around the number 18 (the number of holes on a golf course), post a video, photo or selfie on social media, tag us using #RollitsCharityChallenge and donate to our just giving page. It’s as simple as that!
Here are some ideas and inspiration for challenges you could try or make up your own!
About the charities
Muscular Dystrophy UK leads the fight against muscle disease and 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.
Dove House Hospice is a charity providing excellent care for people in the local community with life limiting illnesses. They are specialists in palliative care, which is the total care of patients whose illness is no longer curable and for whom the goal must be quality of life. Set in beautiful gardens, Dove House Hospice is a 'home from home' where patients and their families can feel at ease in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The patient and their family are at the centre of everything they do; the patient - not the illness - is the focus of their care.
We hope to see you get involved!
