We are thrilled to announce our annual charity golf day, supported by Barclays match funding of £1000, raised £3500 for the National Hereditary Breast Cancer Helpline (NHBCH), making it our most successful golf day to date.
The event took place at Morley Hayes on Thursday 28th September, and was attended by a range of clients, colleagues and friends. Despite poor weather the week before, golfers were treated to what can only be described as perfect golfing conditions out on the 18-hole championship manor course.
Founded in 1996 by Wendy Watson (at a time when little was known about Hereditary Breast Cancer), the NHBCH was established to ensure that those worried about their family history had access to full information on all the options currently available, referrals where appropriate, and full peer support for whatever option was chosen.
Dean Nelson, Partner at Smith Cooper comments “I can’t thank our guests enough for supporting our golf day so generously. Their kindness allowed us to raise more money than ever before, showing a real sense of community and compassion.”
“Most Breast Cancer’s occur by chance, but an alteration in the gene can significantly increase the risk. We are proud to be able to support a charity that promotes awareness of this and the options available, and one that has also acted as a lifeline for people over many years, supporting people through their breast cancer journeys.”
The winners of the Texas Scramble tournament were Available Car, with a very respectable score of 57.3. The day involved a charity auction, featuring an original 1966 England Football tracksuit signed by a number of the players, as well as a raffle featuring wonderful gifts donated by local companies and sponsors.
We conduct several charitable events throughout the year, having previously raised money for Treetops Hospice and Appeal for Alfie.
