Smith Cooper, accountants and business advisors, raised £1,165 for their chosen charity, ‘Appeal 4 Alfie’, at their annual golf event which was held at Breadsall Priory in Derby.
The all-day event saw 72 golfers play 18 holes for the charity which is raising money for treatment for Alfie Oliver, a nine year old boy, who has Cerebral Palsy. The intensive treatment will hopefully enable Alfie to walk following ground-breaking surgery.
The event was rounded off with prize giving and also included a silent auction and a raffle prize draw with many of the prizes being donated by local companies attending the day.
The tournament was won by Available Car with Rattray Parkin and North Midland Construction taking the second and third places.
Dean Nelson, Partner at Smith Cooper commented: “Appeal 4 Alfie is a great charity and a worthwhile cause. It is one that is close to our hearts at Smith Cooper as Alfie is the son of Emily, a former staff member at Smith Cooper. Emily left Smith Cooper to care full-time for Alfie, so we are extremely pleased to continue to support the family and help them to get the vital treatment for Alfie. We are very proud to be able to continue to support our staff and the local community through such events as our golf day! ”
Dean added: “We chose to do a golf day as it is something that we all enjoy and the format helps raise money for a great cause. I want to thank our clients and connectors / intermediaries who supported the event and we wouldn’t have been able to raise such a fantastic amount without their generosity and donation of prizes.
The day was about the local community coming together and raising money for a charity that means a lot to us personally.”
