Stockport based national managed print service provider Midshire Charity Golf Day raised an amazing £6,000, split equally between local NK Theatre Arts, and the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
Taking place on Friday 10th May at the historic Sale Golf Club, Midshire would like to thank the 60 suppliers, customers, and associates in attendance. Delegates included: RISO, PEAC Finance, NK Electrical, Access Hire & Finance, Cragg & Roberts, Clos-o-mat, and Enterprise Financial Services & Connect IT Solutions.
IT Sales Manager at Midshire, Stuart Carruthers was instrumental in organising the event, he said:
“Everyone gathered at the club for a bit of a networking breakfast, we teed off at 11am and played until 4pm so there was a long day of golf in the sun! After 18 holes we were treated to a BBQ, a raffle with some incredible prizes, and a performance from Dominic Collins, a local musician and comedian.”
Dominic gave his time for free due to a heart condition he survived years ago, which he said he owed to the pioneering research of the BHF.
Speaking about the success of the day, Stuart added:
“Honestly this day was huge, I cannot believe the amount of money we managed to raise, thank you so much to everyone who came and contributed.”
Natalie Bunyan, BHF’s Fundraising Manager for the North West added:
“This day was fantastic. Myself and Midshire’s marketing team were whizzing about the course on a buggy making sure everyone was ok and keeping hydrated! The raffle alone raised £1,300 which is just incredible and shows the generosity of everyone on the day!”
Top raffle prizes included an interactive screen worth £2,500, a weekend in a Mercedes SL400 donated by the owner of the new Mercedes showroom in Stockport, LSH Autos, and tickets to see Sir Ian McKellen, kindly donated by NK Theatre. A £160 bottle of champagne, a Nespresso coffee maker, a voucher for a Michelin starred restaurant, and box tickets for a football match also made the prize list.
“Whenever Midshire hold an event for charity they put their all into it. They’ve raised over £7,000 for us over the last 12 months alone, it’s really quite amazing. These funds will go towards more life-changing research carried out by the BHF, thank you to everyone involved!”
Darren Stannage, Company Manager at NK Theatre Arts attended, he concluded:
“The entire day from start to finish was so much fun, even an hour of torrential rain couldn’t put a downer on the day, everyone really got into the charity spirit. Thank you to everyone involved!”
Midshire would like to thank LSH Autos, Siemens Financial Services, PC World, Mark Warren Estate Agents, Fixton Golf Club, Sale Golf Club, Worsley Marriott, The Clove Restaurant, and Tesco East Didsbury for donating the incredible raffle prizes.
