Charity golf day raises £8,000 for Alder Hey Children’s Charity
27th July, 2017
Aaron & Partners event at Portal Golf Club featured 70 players from some of the North West’s leading businesses.
A charity golf day put on by Chester law firm Aaron & Partners LLP and featuring some of the region’s biggest businesses has raised £8,000 for the Alder Hey Children’s Charity.
More than 70 players gave donations to take part in the special event at Portal Golf Club, near Tarporley in Cheshire, taking to the site’s pristine Championship course in teams of four.
Prizes were handed out for the best performing teams, before attentions turned to a silent auction designed to help boost the charity fundraising total.
The event was arranged by Aaron & Partners’ Dispute Resolution and Insolvency Senior Associate David Mann and sponsored by the Mitchell Group car dealership, which offered a brand new Lexus car as a prize for a hole in one.
“Alder Hey is a charity close to our hearts here at Aaron & Partners as a number of our colleagues and their families have been helped greatly by their work over the years.” he said.
“It was a fantastic day and we are grateful for the generous support from some of the most significant businesses in the North West. A special thanks goes to Mitchell Group for agreeing to be the main sponsor.
“Unfortunately, no-one was able to get a hole in one to win a brand new Lexus but we still managed to raise a huge amount of money for an excellent cause.”
Helen Hughes, Fundraising Manager at Alder Hey Children’s Charity, said: “Alder Hey Children’s Charity is incredibly proud of the strong relationship we have built up with Aaron & Partners.
“We were honoured to be chosen to benefit from what was a fantastic event and the money raised will make a huge difference to the young patients treated here at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.”
