96 golfers swung into action on the 18 hole golf course at Mere Golf and Country Club, with a total of 150 guests attending the evening dinner. The dinner was hosted by Karl Kirkpatrick the former Super League Referee, from Stockton on Heath.

Karl was joined by Britain’s Got Talent comedian and impersonator, Les Gibson from Liverpool.

Sub-contractors, business partners and work colleagues contributed towards an impressive total of £26,419.40 which was presented by Finance Director Mike Cleary and Commercial Manager Matt Paul to CEO Reverend David Ireland, alongside Fund Raising Manager Peter Forster.

The charity golf day was just one of the many activities undertaken by divisional staff to raise money for Francis House. Over the course of the year, we’ve had our annual bottle raffle and played football cards, raising over £2,000.

Neil Goodwin, Managing Director said, “We are very happy to be able to have run this fantastic event in aid of Francis House. The work and support they provide in the local community is so important, and we are proud to support them for the 2nd consecutive year.”

We’ve now raised over £44,000 for the last two years in aid of Francis House which is fantastic achievement for everyone.
