Charity Golf Day 2011

Recycling Lives and fourteen other local businesses will be making their way to Pleasington Golf Course near Blackburn this Friday for the Recycling Lives Annual Charity Golf Day.

The annual charity Golf Day is an opportunity to celebrate the hard work of the Recycling Lives social welfare charity, which offers accommodation, training, work experience and support to vulnerable people. It’s also a valuable opportunity to boost funds for the charity while having fun and getting to know the movers and shakers in other ethically-minded firms across the North West.

This year’s golf day follows in the successful footsteps of the 2010 Recycling Lives Golf Tournament, which raised much-needed funds for the charity. The caddy auction, in which a number of good-humoured Residents offered themselves up for purchase, managed to boost the total by over £300.

This year’s tournament will be attended by teams of up to four from Recycling Lives Ltd, the Recycling Lives charity, De Pol Associates, DSJ Shipping and Recycling, Pete Marquis, Howarth Metals, Bradley Demolition, Herbert Forrest, Mi Technology Group, NWR 2004, Hughes Brothers, Credo Sales, Jaguar Preston, Seddon, Campbells Caravans and ISG. 

The tournament also boasts a special VIP guest in the form of England’s Tommy Fleetwood, a rising star on the professional golf circuit, and so it remains to be seen whether any of the enthusiastic amateurs can take him on and win a trophy!
To ensure that the budding golf champions have the best chance of playing well enough to secure a prize, the event will begin with a hearty breakfast before tee-off.  And, perhaps as a suitable comfort at the end of the match, there will be a tasty three course meal to finish with, followed by speeches and prizes for the longest drive, best individual score, best (and worst!) dressed and, of course, the best team score of the day.

Speaking about the event, Steve Jackson, founder of Recycling Lives, commented:

‘The Recycling Lives Charity Golf Day is not just about raising money for the charity – it’s also a way of reconnecting with the companies that have supported us over the last year. Their continued support helps the charity to make a real difference in the lives of vulnerable people, so, I’d like to thank all the companies taking part in this year’s golf day – we look forward to seeing you all on June 3rd.’
