PROTEUS FACADES has helped raise thousands of pounds for charity after more than 80 amateur golfers including local businessmen, football legends and a professional boxer, came together to take part in the manufacturer’s annual golf day.
Taking place at Hurlston Hall Golf & Country Club in Ormskirk on 19 July, the event raised £10,000 in aid of Birchwood Centre, the Lancashire based charity working with young people to prevent homelessness and improve well-being.
The day-long event, hosted by Proteus, began with a full round of golf in the morning. This was followed by a gala dinner during the evening which also included live entertainment and a charity raffle and auction, prizes for which were donated by local businesses.
Lee Caffrey, Managing Director of Proteus Facades, comments: “We felt that as a responsible business it’s important to support grass roots organisations and give something back to our community. Birchwood is an amazing charity that does so much for young people in Lancashire. We are proud to offer our support and would like to thank everyone that helped make our second annual golf day such a huge success. £10,000 is an amazing amount and will make a real difference to Birchwood and the young people it supports.”
A £5,000 hole in one competition, sponsored by Andy O’Sullivan from the Swingers Golf Society, was also in place on the 16th hole. Amateur golfer Olly Crotch secured the prize money and kindly donated a generous amount of his winnings back to Birchwood Centre.
