Ilkeston-based housebuilder Fairgrove Homes recently hosted its annual charity golf day in support of its three nominated charities.
Guests enjoyed 18-holes at the Morley Hayes Hotel, raising money for Treetops Hospice, The Ben Parker Trust Fund and Padley Group, raising over £3,000 in total.
Providing nursing care and emotional support for adults and their families across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, Treetops Hospice delivers day care services, therapeutic services and home visits, ensuring continued access to care for those with a range of conditions.
2018 marked the start of Fairgrove’s work with two additional charities – The Ben Parker Trust Fund (Ben’s Den) and The Padley Group. Set up in 2004, Ben’s Den aims to support families with children diagnosed with cancer and leukaemia by gifting them a holiday – allowing them to enjoy family time, away together.
Padley group is Derby-based charity offering support to the vulnerable through its homeless centre, The Homeless Hub, as well as The Development Centre – a training unit operating courses for those with learning and physical disabilities.
Fairgrove’s golf day was made up of Fairgrove employees as well as friends and colleagues, totaling 58 players.
Steve Midgley, Managing Director at Fairgrove Homes, commented: “I was very impressed with the turnout and the total amount raised on what turned out to be another hugely successful fundraising event. It is a pleasure to continually be involved in hosting such a fantastic annual event which raises vital funds for three important charities. We’re delighted to have gone one better than last year by raising an additional £1,000 and I am looking forward to growing the event year-on-year in order to raise further awareness and money for three very worthy causes.”
