VolkerFitzpatrick Golf Day raises over £13,000 for CRASH

CRASH is delighted to announce that VolkerFitzpatrick have raised over £13,000 through their Charity Golf Day which took place on Wednesday 3rd July at The Hertfordshire Golf & Country Club.

23 teams from across the construction industry took part in the day and were welcomed with a bacon sandwich followed by an 18 hole course in the glorious sunshine. Teams regrouped later in the day for a celebratory dinner, a charity raffle and auction and prize giving presentation to the winners.

John O’Grady, commercial director for VolkerFitzpatrick’s building division and CRASH Trustee said:

“What an amazing day! We managed to raise an astonishing amount of over £13,000 for CRASH, which is such a worthy charity. The day was enjoyed by all and we were delighted to have Francesca Roberts, CRASH charity’s Chief Executive , attend the day with her team. I am thrilled to say, we are also nearly sold out for next year’s event too!”

Francesca Roberts, Chief Executive of CRASH said:

“What a magnificent event. It was wonderful to see such enthusiasm from all those who took part and what a generous gift to CRASH. The atmosphere was terrific and clearly everyone had a good time. The generosity of everyone including the sponsors is really impressive. The funds raised will help CRASH continue our vital work to improve the lives of people who are homeless or need end of life care in a hospice by transforming the buildings they need.’’
