Midshire has reported a successful inaugural charity Golf Day which raised an amazing £6,000, to be split equally between local NK Theatre Arts, and the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
Taking place on 10th May at Sale Golf Club, Midshire would like to thank the 60 suppliers, customers, and associates in attendance. Delegates included: RISO, PEAC Finance, NK Electrical, Access Hire & Finance, Cragg & Roberts, Clos-o-mat, and Enterprise Financial Services & Connect IT Solutions.
Stuart Carruthers, IT Sales Manager at Midshire said, “everyone gathered at the club for a bit of a networking breakfast, we teed off at 11 am and played until 4 pm so there was a long day of golf in the sun. After 18 holes we were treated to a BBQ, a raffle with some incredible prizes, and a performance from Dominic Collins, a local musician, and comedian.”
Dominic gave his time for free due to a heart condition he survived years ago, which he said he owed to the pioneering research of the BHF.
Natalie Bunyan, BHF’s Fundraising Manager for the North West said, “this day was fantastic. Myself and Midshire’s marketing team were whizzing about the course on a buggy making sure everyone was ok and keeping hydrated! The raffle alone raised £1,300 which is just incredible and shows the generosity of everyone on the day.”
Top raffle prizes included an interactive screen worth £2,500, a weekend in a Mercedes SL400 donated by the owner of the new Mercedes showroom in Stockport, LSH Autos, and tickets to see Sir Ian McKellen, kindly donated by NK Theatre. A £160 bottle of champagne, a Nespresso coffee maker, a voucher for a Michelin starred restaurant, and box tickets for a football match also made the prize list.
Darren Stannage, Company Manager at NK Theatre Arts added, “the entire day from start to finish was so much fun, even an hour of torrential rain couldn’t put a downer on the day, everyone really got into the charity spirit. Thank you to everyone involved.”
Midshire would like to thank LSH Autos, Siemens Financial Services, PC World, Mark Warren Estate Agents, Fixton Golf Club, Sale Golf Club, Worsley Marriott, The Clove Restaurant, and Tesco East Didsbury for donating the incredible raffle prizes.
