Battle in the bunkers raises £3,400 for charities
Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity and Rotherham Cancer Care teamed up to host the Charity Golf Day at Rotherham Golf Club for 16 competitive teams.
Rachael Dawes, head of fundraising at Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity, said: “We were thrilled to have so many teams take part at one of the region’s most prestigious golf clubs.
“There was lots of comradery amongst everyone who took part and it was wonderful to see them have such a good time while supporting our charities.
“We can’t thank everyone enough for their generosity – every penny will make a massive difference to our new Tiny Toes appeal, which aims to raise £150,000 for our Neonatal Unit at Rotherham Hospital.
“We’re already busy planning next year’s event.
"It will be an annual event we hope to grow every year.”
Steve Burns, chairman and trustee at Rotherham Cancer Care, added: “We challenged everyone to come and see if they were on a par with their boss or work mates and it was great to see so many businesses club together for two local charities.
“We’re so grateful to everyone who came along, generously paid for raffle tickets, bid on the auction or sponsored the event to help make the funds we raised go further.”
