Hull accountancy, tax and business advisory firm, Smailes Goldie Group, has raised almost £4,000 for the The Daisy Appeal at its annual charity golf day at Burstwick Golf Course.
A total of 19 teams, comprising clients and contacts of the firm, took part, raising £3,888.80 in the process.
Houltons won the competition, followed in second place by the Smile Foundation, while Andrew Jackson came in third.
The Daisy Appeal, based in Cottingham, funds state of the art facilities and treatments for people from the local area living with cancer, heart disease and dementia.
Mike Stocks, Partner at Smailes Goldie Group, said: “It was great to be joined by so many colleagues and clients to raise such a good sum for an important cause that makes a real difference to people from across our region at their time of need.
“Houltons were deserving winners and it was a pleasure to present them with the trophy.”
Claire Levy, Daisy Appeal Fundraiser, said: “Thank you to Smailes Goldie for organising such a well attended Golf Day at Burstwick Golf Club, it is heartening to see the local business community turning out to help the charity to reach the target of £8.5m to complete the Molecular Imaging Research Centre (MIRC). We recently took delivery of the cyclotron se we can produce our own radio tracers for use in the Jack Brignall PET-CT scanning centre. We will be able to scan for heart disease and dementia as well as the continuing scanning for cancer.”
“The Daisy Appeal has already brought enormous benefits to patients from across the Hull and Humber region and we are grateful to all the businesses, communities and individuals who have played a vital part in helping us to reach this milestone, but the journey continues. We are closing in on our target of £8.5m to complete the MIRC and we will then focus our efforts on meeting the substantial running costs.”
