Barlaston Golf Club hosts un-fore-gettable fundraising golf day

Local celebrities, businesses and members of the public have all come together to raise more than £13,000 to help UHNM Charity improve patient care and experience at University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust (UHNM).

Eighteen teams took part in a fundraising golf day at a sun-drenched Barlaston Golf Club, the second to be held at the club in aid of UHNM Charity.

The teams enjoyed 18 holes of golf followed by a barbeque and evening of entertainment on Friday 16 June.

Lisa Thomson, Director of Communications and Charity at UHNM said: “It was really exciting to be back at Barlaston Golf Club for our second UHNM Charity Golf Day. The weather was fantastic and the atmosphere with our teams was just amazing.  So many people have put in so much hard work and donated some brilliant prizes, and I hope everybody had a special day.

“Every penny raised from our amazing total will go towards helping improve the experience of our patients and their environment, helping the charity top provide over and above what the NHS normally does.” 

The event, which was sponsored by LD Property and Tile Central UK, raised £13,102.17 in total, more than twice the amount of last year’s event.

The day’s winning team were the lucky recipients of an overnight stay at the Celtic Manor Resort and round of golf thanks to the sponsors.  

Danny Bowers of Tile Central UK said: “We’re delighted to continue our fundraising for UHNM Charity by sponsoring this year's Golf Day. At some point in our lives we will be in need of the services that our amazing local NHS provide.

“As a local company, we wanted to show our support and would encourage local businesses to sign up and get involved for a spectacular day's golf at Barlaston Golf Club. We’re delighted to have raised so much for UHNM Charity."

The golf day was also attended by local sportspeople including boxer Nathan ‘Hitman’ Heaney and former Stoke City FC midfielder Liam Laurence.

Liam said: “This is an important event for people in our area and I was honoured to be asked to come down and enjoy a fantsic day’s golf.  Nathan was also part of my team, and it was good for us to some down and show our support for UHNM Charity as much as we can.”

Barlaston Golf Club Commercial Director Terry Adnams added: "We’re delighted with how the Golf Day went. We raised a fantastic amount of money for UHNM Charity and the visiting teams had a great day.”
