What a team!


Six children in the Hertfordshire and Essex regions will benefit from a SAIF member’s fundraising drive this year. Daniel Robinson & Sons, who have nine funeral homes in the area, run an annual charity golf day and this year they broke their own record, raising £44,272.

The funds raised will be used to pay for specialist private physiotherapy and equipment, to help six children who were born with cerebral palsy.

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. The physiotherapy, not available through the NHS, gives the children the opportunity to greatly increase their mobility, helping to equip them to lead much more independent lives in the future.

After the event, which took place at Colne Valley Golf Club in Colchester, Gary Neill, Managing Director of Daniel Robinson & Sons, 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 coordinate 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 made this possible.”
