We recently held our first Charity Golf Day raising just over £1,200 for blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan.
Anthony Nolan saves the lives of people with blood cancer and blood disorders by making lifesaving connections between people with blood cancer and incredible strangers ready to donate their stem cells.
Industry colleagues from across the UK joined the RDA team at Beamish Park Golf Club in Durham to enjoy a day of networking, golf and fundraising. The Club shares the beautiful Beamish valley with Beamish Museum and Beamish Hall Hotel.
On the day, guests were treated to a welcome reception followed by an afternoon of Golf, BBQ Buffet and most importantly, a charity raffle.
Roy Addyman, Managing Director at RDA and Chairman at Beamish Park Golf Club said: “What a fantastic day. It was great to see so many colleagues, many of whom had travelled some distance to be with us. I want to say a personal thank you to everyone who donated prizes and helped us to raise funds for such a deserving cause.”
Beatrix Passmore, Community Fundraising Manager at Anthony Nolan, said, ‘The work that RDA is doing makes such a big difference to people with blood cancer. It costs £40 to recruit each person to the Anthony Nolan register, so fundraising is a vital part of our lifesaving work. The more fundraising, we do, the more potential donors we can recruit onto the stem cell register, and the more lives we can save.”
