We had our own warm up for the Ryder Cup when our Midlands region held its annual charity golf day – this time raising £5,000 in aid of a diabetes organisation.
Our parent company, Galliford Try, is Official Supplier to the 2014 Ryder Cup, so it was an extra special event this year at the Greetham Valley Golf Club, Rutland, in the east Midlands.
We entered a team of directors plus staff from our sub-contractors and suppliers. They joined the fundraising for the East of England CYP Diabetes Network which works to improve care for children and young people with diabetes.
The cheque for £5,000 was presented to representatives from the organisation at the end of the day’s play.
Organiser Don Burley, our production manager, said: “We had another fantastic day and my thanks to everyone who not only played, but assisted with the raffle, the presentation evening and general success of the event.
“We were delighted to present the proceeds of the event to East of England CYP Diabetes Network who do such a fantastic job in the region.”
