Darlington-based We do HR is urging local businesses and golf fanatics to sign up to its third charity golf day, at Rockliffe Hall on 5th August.

This year, all funds raised will be donated to local charity the Daisy Chain Project, which receives no statutory funding and supports those who suffer from autism and their carers.

The business is hoping to beat last year’s fundraising total of £3,000 which went towards Butterwick Hospice.

Players will be invited to an awards dinner, which will encompass a presentation ceremony for those who have won a prize. Categories include ‘nearest the pin’, ‘longest drive’, ‘beat the pro’ and a new competition, the ‘Dyno Plumbing Putting Champion’.

Prizes will also be presented to players, for runner up teams, best individual and a booby prize, at the spectacular dinner.

Alasdair Ross, managing director of We do HR, said: “I’m so excited for this year’s event. It is always a great and enjoyable day.

“The Daisy Chain Project is a local charity and it affects more people than we realise. It supports both the individuals affected by autism but also provides much needed support for their families as well.”

He added: “We’re determined to surpass last year’s £3,000 and raise vital funds for the cause.”

Justine Johnson, corporate partnership manager at the Daisy Chain Project commented: “We are delighted to be supported by We do HR and its golf day.

“We rely completely on the generosity of the people and businesses of Tees Valley in supporting those with autism and their families. We provide care and respite to over 800 individuals per week and every pound helps, so raising £3000 will help hundreds of families in the Tees Valley. ”

Providing 200 bottles of tap water for this year’s event will be Northumbrian Water, which will also have a representative team for the day’s activities.

Tee off will commence at midday on Rockliffe Hall’s first-rate 18 hole course, local business leaders will be amongst the players taking part in championship golf with hopes to win one of the awards at the 6pm ceremony.

Similarly to the two previous years, We do HR is inviting businesses to sponsor each hole at £30, all of which will be donated to the Daisy Chain Project.
