Last week GPW Recruitment held their 2011 Charity Golf Day at Houghwood Golf Course, St Helens. The golf day raised money for the Alder Hey Imagine Appeal, which is the charity associated with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. The charity helps raise money to buy vital medical equipment and carry out research into medical conditions affecting the many children treated at Alder Hey Hospital.
GPW’s target was to raise over £5000 for the children’s charity. However, this target was smashed with a final total raised on the day of £10,013. Peter Turner, Managing Director at Houghwood Golf Course said,
“GPW Recruitment’s Charity Golf Day has raised more money than any other charity golf day held at Houghwood Golf Course. We are proud to have supported the day”
The auction saw prizes such as the Annual Privileged Pass for Houghwood Golf Course sold for £700, and framed breeches signed by various jockeys including A P McCoy, for £500.
Gary Ward, Operations Manager at GPW Recruitment commented,
“We had already raised £2500 through hole and competition sponsorship from GPW suppliers. On the actual day we had raffles and auctions which, thanks to the immense generosity of GPW’s clients, helped us double our target of £5000 and raise a massive £10,013 for the Alder Hey Imagine Appeal. We would like to thank our clients and our suppliers for their involvement and for giving so generously. The day exceeded all expectations and we hope the money raised will have a positive effect on the lives of those being treated at Alder Hey Hospital.”
Managing Director of GPW Recruitment, Mark Parish commented,
“There was a great atmosphere out on the fairway. Our clients showed great spirit and even greater generosity. We are delighted to have been able to raise so much money for such a excellent cause.”
