Golf day’s hole lot of cash

A FIRE brigade held it’s Annual Charity Golf Day and raised £2,000 for good causes.

Cleveland Fire Brigade held a tournament known as Texas Scramble, which saw a record 16 teams of four, comprised of representatives from businesses in the fire sector, battle it out in aid of the Fire Fighter’s Charity.

The charity provides pioneering support and treatment to all fire service workers during their times of need.

Ian Hendry, event organiser said: “This was the sixth Annual Charity Golf Day we have held and by far the best.

“Each year we have tried to improve the day which this year resulted in more teams playing and more money being raised for the Fire Fighters Charity.

“My thanks go to Ian Hayton, chief fire officer, Wynyard Golf Club, and all the participants, a great day that raised much needed funds for a great cause.”

Tom McLaughlin, regional director of Lorne Stewart who attended the event, said: “An excellent golf day for a very worthwhile charity, held at an excellent venue with very enjoyable people.

“Our clients thoroughly enjoyed themselves throughout the whole day.”

The seventh golf day will take place on Thursday, July 19, 2012. For more information or to provisionally book a team, Denise Lee, community engagement and events officer can be contacted on (01429) 874042 or email:
