With woods and irons at the ready two development companies have been teeing off to raise money for charity at annual golf days.

Housebuilder and development company Larkfleet Group raised nearly £1,000 for charity when it balanced business with pleasure at its annual golf day at Toft Country House Hotel and Golf Club.

The event raised about £940 for charity which Larkfleet will donate to a worthy cause in the future.

Larkfleet Group managing director Karl Hick said: “I am delighted with the level of support we gained at this event which allowed us to raise an impressive sum of money which will go to a worthy cause.

“What’s more, the golf day was a great way to build on client and customer relations as well as thanking employees for their hard work over the past year.”

Linden Homes fundraisers took to the fairway at Greetham Valley Golf Club.

The golf day, complete with raffle, added to the company’s fundraising efforts for Peterborough’s Sue Ryder Appeal – which is looking to raise £6 million to transform the city’s palliative care hospice.

Thorpe Hall Hospice regional fundraiser Alison Toomey was invited to the golf day presentation to accept £4,000 for the appeal from Linden Homes.

Linden Homes production manager Don Burley, who was the main organiser of the charity golf day, said: “The event was another huge success and apart from an excellent day’s golfing.

“Everyone taking part was delighted to help raise money for the Sue Ryder Appeal in Peterborough. Our thanks and congratulations to everyone.”
