R. Benson 2018 Charity Golf Day

R. Benson hosted a charity golf on Monday, 3rd September at Northwood Golf Club.

Thanks to the support of our staff and guests we raised an incredible £6,382.50 on the day that will be shared equally between this year’s chosen charities, Alzheimer’s Society and Kids Cancer Charity.

The event was attended by our supply chain partners and provided a great opportunity for suppliers and subcontractors to discuss opportunities for future partnerships.

Alzheimer’s Society will receive a donation of £3,191.25 and we would like to thank Erika Aldridge from the Alzheimer’s Society for sharing with us how the money we raise will go directly to the people that need support and towards the research needed to find a cure to this terrible disease.

Kids Cancer Charity will also receive £3,191.25, The Charity was set up in 1989 to support children with cancer and their families. The charity has specially co-ordinated ‘stress-free’ holiday programmes that ensure that children with cancer and their families who need a break in the UK, Disneyland Paris or Florida do not have to worry about anything… except enjoying themselves.

A special thank you goes to all our sponsors including; Bansal, Benchmarx, Howdens, Jewsons, JJ Roofing, Magnet, Multifix, Northwood Golf Club, Rapid, Skyline, STS, Travis Perkins, West Herts Golf. We would also like to thank everyone that attended the event and supported the raffle and auction.
