A GOLF fund-raiser has raised thousands of pounds for two Midlands based charities.
The hottest day of the year gave a great start to the Sydney Mitchell Charity Golf Competition at Copt Heath Golf Club.
The generous golfers, PGA Trainees and Sydney Mitchell team raised more than £3,000 from entry fees, sponsorship and a raffle for Age UK Solihull and The Buddy Bag Foundation.
Move Reports won the competition, which was played under Stableford rules.
Eastcote Wealth Management came in a very close second place and Handelsbanken in third.
Karen Moores, a senior partner at Sydney Mitchell said: “Thank you to all of our players and supporters and especially the PGA Trainees who were diligent with their scoring and support on the day.
“It is such a pleasure to be able to support our chosen charities, Age UK Solihull and the Buddy Bag Foundation.
“The generosity of all those attending was outstanding and in particular Move Reports who also sponsored a hole for £500.”
The Buddy Bag Foundation, based in Sutton Coldfield, provides children fleeing violent situations at home essential items when they enter emergency care after.
Rebecca Jacob from Age UK Solihull said: “Sydney Mitchell has been a great supporter of Age UK Solihull for many years – even before selecting us for their charity of the year.
“We are a local charity and the funds raised from Sydney Mitchell’s Golf Day will help us provide much-needed support to older people in the Solihull borough.
“Thank you to everyone for your generosity – it will help make a real difference in our community.”
