Record-breaking £47k for local children

The Daniel Robinson team

It was another great feat of fundraising for funeral directors, Daniel Robinson & Sons when they held their Annual Charity Golf Day on Wednesday 14 September, at Colne Valley Golf Club. They broke their own record for this event, raising more than £47,000.

All funds raised are being used to pay for specialist private physiotherapy and equipment, 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.

The beneficiaries Lenny, Lyncoln, Aiden, Summer, Nat and Sid, are all making fantastic progress even though many of them have had to endure major surgery during lockdown, making the physiotherapy that is being provided even more vital.

It was a fantastic day for all those who took part too, with excellent weather, and one of the golfers, Mark Preston, achieving an impressive hole in one. Scott Myles Interiors were the winning team, it was their first time in attendance, and they had an excellent round.

Gary Neill, Managing Director of Daniel Robinson & Sons, is delighted with the funds raised and said: “This money will make a huge difference to the lives of these children and to their families’ lives.

“While 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. We would all like to say a very grateful ‘thank you’ to everyone who has made this possible.”
