Fundraisers club together for Stick ‘n’ Step’s 21st birthday charity golf day
(Posted on 03/05/23)
152 golfers took part in our client Stick ‘n’ Step’s annual golf day on Monday 1st May at Pryors Hayes Golf Club in Cheshire. With donations still coming in, over £26,000 was raised for the cerebral palsy charity, which is celebrating its 21st birthday this year.
38 four ball teams took part in the event, with players coming from all around the UK. Sporting stars including footballing legends Derek Mountfield, Arthur Albiston, Stuart Pearson, Alex Stepney, Frank Stapleton and Alan McInally took part, while the winning team was led by Paul Rawlinson. Sky Sports commentator Rob Palmer organised the day once more in his role as Stick ‘n’ Step’s ambassador.
Players competed in vain to get a hole in one on the 9th to win a Honda CBR650R motorbike, courtesy of Smiths Honda. The event was followed by the traditional evening’s entertainment and auction to boost Stick ‘n’ Step’s fundraising efforts still further.
Stick ‘n’ Step Interim CEO, Sarah Smithson, said,
“Every year we are bowled over by the wonderful support we receive from everyone involved in this remarkable event. I would like to say a very big thank you once more to everyone who took part to help us fundraise for the amazing children, who attend our centres, and their families.”
The event was supported by St James’s Place and its Senior Partner, Stephen Ogilby, from PFPS Wealth Management, commented,
“We are so proud to be supporting such a fabulous local charity helping children with cerebral palsy. We know that the cost of living crisis is affecting every one of us at the moment and it’s more important than ever to support local charities, such as Stick ‘n’ Step, which are working hard to continue to give free services to those who need them so much.”
