A team of golfing enthusiasts from RoyaleGroup have embarked on a gruelling 11-hour 72-hole golf session – raising £1,000 for MacMillan Cancer support.
The challenge, held at the Holywell Bay Golf Course, saw the plucky quartet dust off their clubs and play for almost half a day – walking 20-miles in the process.
Now the team, who work at Cornish adventure park Camel Creek and RoyaleResorts’ Sun Valley Holiday Park, are spreading further awareness of their remarkable achievement, in the hope to raise more funds for the charity.
Keith Thompson, sales and marketing manager at Camel Creek said: “The number of people with cancer is growing every day, and we want to reach out and improve the lives of every one of those people.
“MacMillan is such an important charity, and their tireless work helping families who have been affected by the disease is incredible. As all of us have or will end up knowing somebody affected by Cancer, we couldn’t think of a more worthy charity to raise money for.”
Simon Gotthardt, sales executive at Sun Valley, added: “We had an amazing day, and there was a true sense of camaraderie on the course.
“The staff at Holywell Bay were amazing, and they supported us every step of the way. We even had the VIP treatment, receiving special gift packs filled with branded golf accessories, and were given our very own seating area so we could eat lunch in style.
“What’s more, the staff helped raise awareness of our cause to other players. We are extremely grateful for their help.”
Robert Bull, CEO of RoyaleGroup said: “Sadly, cancer affects far too many people. That means charities like MacMillan are so important in providing support and advice to those who are diagnosed, as well as their families.
“We are extremely proud that we have such dedicated fundraisers who work at RoyaleGroup. To show our gratitude, we have donated £500 for their cause. We are in awe of the amazing work they have done.”
