Earlier in the summer, Available Car Ltd hosted our Fifth Annual Charity Golf Day at Trent Lock Golf Club in Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire, helping raise a fantastic £8,000 for AvailableCar’s three chosen charities dedicated to supporting children with life-limiting illnesses and their families.
On May 26, a total of 80 raring-to-go golfers turned out at the well-established club for another great fundraising event, helping to raise money for the three charities AvailableCar sponsor – Rainbows Children’s Hospice in Loughborough, East Midlands; Acorns Children’s Hospice in the West Midlands and now our Leeds-based charity, Martin House Children’s Hospice in West Yorkshire.
This year, we tried to get plenty of teams – mainly made up of suppliers and business partners - to our golf day in order to raise as much money as possible for charities.
At the end of the hugely enjoyable day, we’d raised an amazing £8,371.30, which surpassed last year’s total by £1,536. The funds have been split between the three charity groups to add a little extra to the amount we already generate from our fantastic monthly customer donations.
AvailableCar has raised over £660,000 in the last seven years and now about £14,000 per month with both our customer and Available Car donations and fundraising events like our golf day.
The event yet again proved to be a very competitive day but was fun filled with smiles all round – even when attempting to beat the Club Pro on the ninth hole. The tournament produced a different winning team for the fifth year running - BCA Leeds. In tradition, their company name will be engraved on to the charity golf tournament shield.
Available Car Ltd directors Graham and Alison Bell and all the team would like to say a really BIG thank you to every player and company that supported and took part in this year’s event and to Trent Lock Golf Club for hosting the tournament. And thank you to everyone that donated the fantastic raffle prizes which helped boost the day’s takings significantly.
We hope to see you all again for next year’s event!
