30th March 2017
SDL Bigwood’s annual golf day raised a fantastic £3,159.25 for Mary Stevens Hospice.
The event, held for the 14th year at Edgbaston Golf Club, was won by Stourbridge-based Hayburn Rock Financial Planning and traditionally the victors get to nominate the charity of their choice.
The team comprised Stephen Perks, managing director, Richard Chapman, Daryl Chance and Brian Flint.
Mr Perks and Rory Daly, chief executive of SDL Bigwood, presented a cheque to Alex Winstanley, community engagement officer for Mary Stevens Hospice.
The hospice offers specialist care for people living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, as well as dedicated support for their families and carers.
It is currently seeking to raise £3 million to expand its day unit facility.
Stephen Perks, managing director of Hayburn Rock, said: “We are pleased to nominate Mary Stevens Hospice as the recipient of this charitable donation.
“We have a close association with the charity and see first-hand the tremendous work that they do. Thanks also to SDL Bigwood who have made this donation possible by organising such a great event.”
Rory Daly, CEO of SDL Bigwood, said: “Hayburn Rock have been great supporters of our Charity Golf Day over many years and we are delighted that they won.
“Furthermore, their choice of Mary Stevens Hospice as the beneficiary of all the monies raised went down very well with everyone here.”
Alex Winstanley, corporate engagement officer, Mary Stevens Hospice Group, said: “The support of organisations like Hayburn Rock and SDL Bigwood are the only reason we can offer our care to our patients and their families, 24 hours a day, 7-days a week, 365 days a year.
“Their generosity will make a huge difference to everyone here at the Hospice, and we are proud and privileged to have been their charity of choice.”
The 2017 SDL Bigwood Annual Charity Golf Day will once again be held at Edgbaston Golf Club on Wednesday 4th October.
