Golfers tee up to raise £11k

September 6th, 2023
Selco Charity Golf Day 2023

Customers, suppliers and colleagues at our Swansea branch took to the fairways to raise more than £11,000 in a charity golf day.

Our team in Swansea organised the successful event for 80 players at the picturesque Gower Golf Club, with a total of £11,009 raised for our nominated charity of the year, Cancer Research UK.

Jason Delaney, deputy branch manager at our branch on Upper Fforest Way, said: “I’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who attended our golf day, as well as those who supported in other ways such as sponsoring holes and donating prizes.

“It was a brilliant, sunny day with some top golf on show – as well as one or two wayward shots!

“To raise such a huge amount of money for a great cause is really pleasing. The tireless work of Cancer Research UK makes a tremendous difference to people with cancer and their families so to play a part in supporting their efforts is a real honour.”

The golfers battled for a host of honours, including a team prize, nearest the pin and longest drive. Team Dawes scooped the first prize in the Texas Scramble team competition.

The money raised means we have now contributed almost £100,000 to Cancer Research UK in 2023 alone, on top of the £200,000 donated to the charity last year.

All money raised will help Cancer Research UK’s studies into the prevention and treatment of cancer through the work of over 4,000 doctors, nurses and scientists.
