Parkers golf day raises over £21,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust

Posted 24th July 2019


Parker Building Supplies’ 6th annual golf day has raised over £21,000 for company charity, the Teenage Cancer Trust in our largest ever fundraising event. Forty-three teams of customers, suppliers and colleagues took over the greens at the East Sussex National for a fantastic fundraising event full of friendly competition. 

The day also included a supplier exhibition and continued into the evening with a meal and entertainment hosted by Parker Building Supplies Sales Director, Graham Pitts and Ex Lions Tim Stimpson. A series of charity auctions, games and good-natured golfing fines help to boost the fundraising total to over £21,000 – our highest total to date!

One of our customers who attended the day, Mark Hodgson from Best Demolition said “I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for what was a fantastic day of golf and fundraising . From start to finish the day was very smooth and hopefully we all raised a lot of money for a very worthwhile cause. My team members were very impressed and we look forward to supporting you again in the future. “

Lynn Hyder, Regional Fundraiser for Teenage Cancer Trust said “I was delighted to attend the Parker Building Supplies annual golf event at East Sussex National Golf Club last Friday (12th July).  The Parkers team did an amazing job of organising a hugely successful day that was not only enjoyed by everyone that attended, but that raised an incredible £21,051 to support teenagers and young adults with cancer.  We really cannot thank them enough for their ongoing support for Teenage Cancer Trust as we strive to reach every young person facing cancer.”

Parkers would like to thank everyone involved for their support during the day and we look forward to seeing you all again at the next one!
