WEC's Seventh Annual Charity Golf Day 2018

WEC Group held its seventh Annual Charity Golf Tournament on Friday 13th July at Accrington Golf Club. The golf day was open to customers, suppliers, staff and commercial associates of WEC Group, and there was some hard-fought competition among the 64 players on the greens.

The charity we are supporting this year is Oliver's Neuroblastoma Appeal. This appeal is a local fundraising effort supporting four-year-old Oliver from Blackburn who has been diagnosed with stage 4 high risk Neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of childhood cancer. Following from Oliver’s diagnosis, his little sister Eva has also since been diagnosed with the same condition. The charity needs to raise £200,000 to give Oliver access to potentially lifesaving treatment which is not available on the NHS and will increase his chances of survival.

Together we raised £2,995 from registration fees, sponsorship, auctions, raffles, bingo and generous donations on the evening. A further £2,000 has been very kindly added to our total in match funding by our sponsors, Barclays. This brings the grand total raised to £4,995!  

We would like to thank all the players for their generous charity donations on the day as well as all our sponsors and suppliers who donated some brilliant prizes. These included a titleist premium golf bag, amazon echo, a Manchester United championship game and many more other prizes.
