Charity golf day raises £38,000
It was yet another great feat of fundraising for Daniel Robinson & Sons when, on 11 September, 34 teams took part in the golf day in Essex.
The event, held at Colne Valley Golf Club, Earls Colne, raised more funds for specialist private physiotherapy to help local children who were born with cerebral palsy. This physiotherapy is not available through the NHS, but it gives the children the opportunity to greatly increase their mobility, helping to equip them to lead much more independent lives in the future.
Over the last few years the beneficiaries have been Lenny, Lyncoln, Aiden and Summer, all of whom are making fantastic progress. This year the company has ‘adopted’ a further two children, Sid and Nat, who will also now be able to benefit from the physiotherapy with local specialist company Kids Physio Works.
Gary Neill, Managing Director of Daniel Robinson & Sons, is delighted with the funds raised.
“This money will make a huge difference to the lives of these children and to their families’ lives,” said Gary. “Whilst our team works hard to co-ordinate and deliver the day, we couldn’t do any of this without the generosity of local companies who donate items – and the players who come and give so generously, thank you to everyone who has made this possible.”
