GOLFERS teeing off to raise charity funds saw our Grimsby team receive more than £3,000 towards the running of our life-changing programmes.
More than 150 golfers took part in the 2018 annual charity day at Louth’s Kenwick Park Golf Club. Held on the last day of August, around half-a-dozen local charities benefit every year with participants having a hand in selecting the recipients, along with the club’s men and lady captains and the event organiser.
This year, the organiser and men’s captain are one of the same – businessman Stephen Clarke, and he selected CatZero as a worthy charity to receive £3,250 of the monies raised.
Stephen, who founded and still has a leading role in Grimsby business Tri-Pack, has organised the annual charity golf day for the last four years – taking over the reins from founder Bob Jones. Bob, who has sadly passed away, started the event and ran it for 21 years.
For Stephen it is an honour to continue the charity event and he is delighted to see it grow every year.
“We have a great day, with our own members and people from other clubs invited. It is always a full house, with a very good ‘half way house’ and a great meal and social event in the evening, complete with a large raffle and an exciting auction,” said Stephen.
Over the years, tens of thousands of pounds have been raised for good causes, and Stephen was delighted to support CatZero for the second consecutive year.
“There is no doubting the good work that the charity does, and I am delighted to be able to offer this support,” he added.
Our Programme Manager in Grimsby Sean Cahill said: “The work that we do changes lives and we are so grateful that people like Stephen and his fellow golfers recognise that.”
