A supermarket distribution centre’s charity golf day has gone a ‘fairway’ to helping St Luke’s Hospice provide vital end of life care after it raised a fantastic £1,500.
Generous colleagues from the Morrisons distribution centre in Gadbrook, Northwich staged their fifth annual golf competition last month at the Macdonald Portal Golf Club in Tarporley, with teams from companies across Cheshire battling the bunkers and greens all in aid of good causes.
Mark Porter, Corporate and Community Fundraiser for St Luke’s, commented: “A huge thanks to everyone at Morrisons for their ongoing support, it really does make a big difference to us. The competition was fierce on the day and the standard of play excellent, but the most important thing was the generosity of everyone involved and the amazing sums they helped to raise.”
In total the golf day raised more than £6,400, of which £1,500 was kindly donated to St Luke’s with the remainder going to Morrisons’ charity of the year Sue Ryder.
Karl Woodward, Transport General Manager from Morrisons, said: “Everyone on site has been touched by the work of St Luke’s at some point. We as a local business are keen to work closely with the community where possible.”
Local companies with players competing in the event included North West Material Handling, Thomas Hardies Commercials and Cartwright Trailer Builders.
