A fundraising golf day organised by our South East region is anticipated to collect more than £35,000 in aid of a young people’s cancer charity.
The Emily Ash Trust, which works to improve the lives of children and young people suffering with cancer, was the beneficiary of the event held on Friday September 4th at Goodwood Downs Golf Course, near Chichester.
Teams made up of Linden Homes’ employees and our business partners competed in friendly rivalry, vying for awards such as longest drive, nearest the pin, and an unclaimed £10,000 for anyone scoring a hole in one.
More money was raised at an evening dinner, where the guest speaker was England rugby star Jeff Probyn. An auction sold off prizes including a helicopter ride, Chelsea and Arsenal tickets, an Apple Watch and a five-star dining experience on the Spitbank Fort.
Darren Maddox, Linden Homes South East managing director, said: “I’d like to thank everyone who took part in what was a very successful event. We raised thousands of pounds for a very deserving charity in a fantastic atmosphere.
“We organise these golf days every year and I think they get better every time. Linden Homes is a housebuilder but we’re determined to contribute more than bricks and mortar, and this is an example of that community philosophy in action.”
The benefits of buying new make the choice easy. Here are just a few:
