Building society the West Brom has swung into action to organise a golf day in support of its nominated charity partner.
Held at the Staffordshire Golf Club in Wombourne, the event raised £5,863 on behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust.
A total of 22 teams, made up of staff, suppliers, business partners and industry contacts, took part in the competition. There were prizes for the longest drive and nearest the pin on selected holes.
David Taylor, the West Brom’s Head of Products, who helped arrange the event, said: “It was a hugely successful day and to collect nearly £6,000 from our first major fundraising event is a fantastic start to our partnership.
“Such a strong response demonstrates the level of support behind our new charity and how determined people are to raise as much money as possible for Teenage Cancer Trust.”
Money from the golf event was raised via entry fees, donations on the day, a raffle and an auction.
Emily Cooper, Regional Fundraiser in the West Midlands for Teenage Cancer Trust, said: “We are thrilled with the money raised through the West Brom’s golf day.
“For every young person we currently reach there is another we can’t. The money donated by the West Brom means we are closer to helping every young person fighting this disease in the West Midlands.”
