North East’s We do HR tees up thousands for charity


A North East based HR firm raised vital funds for charity at its successful golf day earlier last week.

The all day annual event, which was organised by Darlington-based We do HR, raised a staggering £4000 for its chosen charity this year, the Daisy Chain Project.

Over 70 players, including local business leaders from the region, gathered at Rockliffe Hall’s first-rate 18 hole course to fundraise for the charity.

The fun-filled day included a range of golfing contests and a two-course meal, with prizes, such as “nearest pin” and “longest drive” which went to Andrew Smith and Mike Robinson.

Dyer Engineering’s group, including Richard Bradley, Simon Dickinson, Lester Wilson and David Steven won first team on the day.

Managing director of We do HR, Alasdair Ross said: “It’s so rewarding to see everyone who turned out having a great day and know it’s for an excellent cause.

“I’m delighted we have managed to raise so much and that we have been able to increase both the event in itself, and the donation by raising £1000 more than last year!”

Mr Ross added: “It’s been a privilege to help such a worthy cause. It makes such a difference to the children and families who use the facilities and rely upon the support of the Daisy Chain Project to provide some much needed respite care.”

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 £4000 will help hundreds of families in the Tees Valley.”

We do HR is already planning its fourth annual golf day, as it has proven to be a hit year after year.

The local business provides bespoke services to small to medium sized businesses that are seeking to outsource their HR functions.
