A £250 cheque has been handed to charity following an annual golf day staged by Focus Consultants.
Focus. which specialises in funding and economic development, project management, chartered surveying and energy, staged the event at Belton Park Golf Club in Grantham.
Players donated £250 in the raffle, and the proceeds were presented by Focus Partner Trevor Newton to Jamie Davenport from Macmillan Cancer Support to help fund Macmillan nurses.
Trevor, who is based in the Boston office of Focus, organised the event along with Associate Craig Gould, who is based at our Nottingham headquarters.
The event, which has become an annual date on the Focus Consultants’ calendar, attracted players from across the East Midlands. Twenty seven clients, associates and staff took part in the charity day.
Trevor said: “It was great to see so many clients at our charity golf day, and I am very pleased that we have been able to support the very valuable work carried out by Macmillan nurses with our donation to charity.”
More than two million people are living with or beyond cancer in the UK today. This figure will rise to four million by 2030. An estimated 27,927 people are living with cancer in Lincolnshire today, and every year approximately 3,800 people are diagnosed with cancer in the county.
Macmillan Cancer Support’s Jamie Davenport said: “We are very grateful for the donation from Focus Consultants. £27 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for an hour, helping patients and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support that prevents people feeling like they’re facing cancer alone.”
Focus chose to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support as the charity is currently providing support to a colleague and family.
