Linden Homes Western raised a staggering £13,000 for its charity of the year, Teenage Cancer Trust, at its annual charity golf day.
Key stakeholders were invited to the event where they played at The Kendleshire’s 18 hole golf course near Bristol. Sue Scholfield, sales and marketing director of Linden Homes, said: “We’re delighted that the event was such a resounding success. We managed to raise a huge sum of money for a very worthwhile cause and it was good fun for everyone involved.”
Around seven young people between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK and the Teenage Cancer Trust provides expert treatment and support to young people from the moment they hear the word ‘cancer’.
Bridget Woodard from Teenage Cancer Trust said: “We’re so grateful to be Linden Homes’ charity of the year and completely blown away by their support so far! The golf day was fantastic and we are so thankful to all those who came to the event or supported in some way – whether it was buying a ticket, providing a raffle prize, sponsorship or helping to organise the event. The money Linden Homes raised from this event will make a huge difference for young people diagnosed with cancer. From all of us at Teenage Cancer Trust – thank you!”
Sue added: “A colleague’s 20-year-old daughter, Chloe, was diagnosed with cancer and we wanted to help the charity that had done so much to help her. We’re thrilled that one event has managed to raise £13,000 and we’re also holding bake sales, dress down days, raffles and taking part in charity runs to boost our contribution. The Teenage Cancer Trust is amazing: providing world class specialist units in 28 hospitals, along with expert nurses and youth support coordinators; they run events and provide a wide choice of free wigs. We know first-hand from Chloe what a wonderful job they do and it’s certainly a charity that is very close to our hearts.”
