VolkerFitzpatrick raises record amount at annual Golf Day
VolkerFitzpatrick achieved a remarkable fundraising success, raising a total of £23,008 in aid of CRASH during their 6th annual ‘Paul Lane Memorial Golf Day’. The event was held at the prestigious Belfry Golf Resort PGA course and surpassed last year’s record-breaking amount of £22k.
The annual event, which pays tribute to late friend and colleague Paul Lane, Head of Quality at VolkerFitzpatrick, saw the collaborative efforts of the building division team to deliver an enjoyable day out for their supply chain.
The day kicked off with a breakfast and briefing, followed by a minute’s silence for Paul Lane and a round of 4-ball. In the evening, guests gathered for a 3-course dinner, raffle, and auction featuring an array of luxurious prizes generously donated by the VolkerFitzpatrick supply chain. These prizes included 4-ball golf days, England football tickets, and signed memorabilia. CRASH Corporate Patrons London Building Control, dalkia (formerly Imtech) and Dulux Decorator Centre and supporter The British Board of Agrément (BBA) who donated prizes. Thank you Beale & Co who donated items to the goody bags.

‘’Even after so many years in the charitable sector I never fail to be moved by the generosity of people, and the trust they put in CRASH charity to use their donations carefully, so we can help as many people as possible. Thank you to the incredible VolkerFitzpatrick team and the compassion from each person who contributed to make the Golf Day a success – you have played your part in helping people who are homeless, and children and adults who need hospice care.’’
