RBA Directors said, “This year’s golf day has proved a real success; it’s been our biggest golf day to date raising more than ever before. We were blessed with great weather and everyone seemed to enjoy their day. The three charities that benefit are so vital, and we’re pleased to be able to do our bit for these charities and support the 3 Peaks for Lisa challenge.
Over our six golf days so far we have raised over £21,000 for some important charities; in addition we have given grants to smaller charities via the St. James’s Place Foundation. We are keen to keep progressing our golf day and our overall involvement in local charity work. We would like to thank everybody who has been involved in this year’s event for their support and generosity in raising monies for this great cause.”
