Sheffield-based roofing specialist, Martin-Brooks, has raised a further £2,000 for local charities, thanks to the generosity of its golf loving friends and colleagues.
The firm held its annual golf day at Grassmoor Golf Centre in Chesterfield as part of its pledge to raise £25,000 for good causes, to mark its 25th anniversary.
A total of 17 teams participated in the 18-hole Stableford competition, which was won by GS Roofing Supplies from Barnsley, whilst Martin-Brooks’ Alex Elmore claimed glory for the hosts, securing victory in the individual category. Trophies and prizes were awarded to the winners at a post-match celebratory meal held at Grassmoor’s club house.
Martin-Brooks’ latest fundraiser takes the total added to the firm’s charity fund this year to almost £4,500, after estimator, Andrew Wheadon, completed the Sheffield Half Marathon and director, Jeremy Martin, cycled from Lands End to John O’Groats in June.
Dale Wright, Martin-Brooks’ contracts director and organiser of the event, said: “Despite a soggy start, our fellow golf enthusiasts put up a spirited fight against the elements and each other to produce a close competition. We would like to congratulate the winners and extend our thanks to all those who took part. We are very grateful to everyone who continues to support our charity fundraising – without their generosity we could not hope to reach our £25,000 goal.”
The organisations benefiting from Martin-Brooks’ charity challenge 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.
