SAIF Member raises record-breaking £43,000 for local children23/10/2018 // No Comments
Daniel Robinson & Sons in Hertfordshire, Essex and Cambridgeshire, is better known for its reputation as a local independent family funeral director, but once a year it becomes first class charity fundraisers when it holds its annual charity golf day. This year, on Wednesday 12 September, 35 teams took part in the golf day, held at Colne Valley Golf Club, Earls Colne. The day always attracts a lot of interest and this year BBC Essex breakfast business team ‘Ben Son’ arrived to record an interview for their show, closely followed by Braintree TV.
After a day of golf, putting and chipping, followed by a tombola and charity auction in the evening, the total amount raised was more than had been raised at any of the previous 14 golf days, a staggering £43,000. Gary Neill, Managing Director of Daniel Robinson & Sons, is delighted and said: “These funds will help four local children who all have cerebral palsy in their lower limbs. They will all now be able to benefit from intensive private physiotherapy and equipment. This money will change their levels of mobility forever and help them to build a better future.”
