OUR annual charity golf day took place at Rockliffe Hotel Golf Course on Thursday the 20th May. Even though the weather wasn’t on our side, that didn’t deter our 20 teams from playing all 18 holes and having a laugh for a worthy cause.
Firstly we wanted to say a huge thank you to our hosts Rockliffe Hall Golf Club for their hospitality and to our main sponsors Host and Stay for supporting this annual event. We also wanted to say thank you to some of our Friends of the Foundation who provided items for our goodie bags – Middlesbrough College, Doornbos and Rosedene Nurseries.
Due to everyone’s generous donations and support of this year’s event we managed to raise over £5000 which will allow us to continue our work with the vulnerable and marginalised within our communities.
