Sheffield-based roofing specialists, Martin-Brooks, has putt another £2,000 in its 25th anniversary charity fund, following a successful second round of its annual golf tournament.
More than 50 colleagues and friends of the firm took to the green for a second year for Martin-Brooks’ 18-hole Stableford prize competition, raising £2,050 for local charities.
The event, which was held at Grassmoor Golf Club in Chesterfield, saw golfers tee off in groups of four. Prizes were awarded at the end of the competition to the most successful individual and team at a celebratory meal and presentation ceremony in the club house.
Trophies were presented by Martin-Brooks to individual winner, Darren Wild of G W Joinery, whilst the group prize was bagged by Doncaster builders, Togel Contractors, whose team comprised Ron Gray, Steve Shepherd, Bob Fitzmorris and Ken Stevens.
Dale Wright, Martin-Brooks’ contracts director, organised the competition. He said: “Last year’s charity golf day was such a success that we decided to make it an annual fixture. I’d like to thank everyone who turned out again in support of our 25th anniversary challenge. It was another hugely enjoyable event that made a significant contribution to our £25,000 fundraising target.”
Martin-Brooks pledged its support to nine local charities as part of its 25th anniversary celebrations and has already donated more than £10,000. Organisations benefiting from its fundraising include Cavendish Cancer Care, St Vincent’s Furniture Scheme, Sheffield Talking News, The Rowan School, Catcliffe MS Therapy Centre, Amy’s Retreat, Norfolk Park Special School, Sheffield Institute Foundation’s motor neurone research centre and Help for Heroes.
