Golf day raises charity cash

Business ambassadors and corporate partners of Midlands Air Ambulance Charity attended its annual corporate golf day at JCB Golf & Country Club. The sold out event was sponsored by Phoenix Group, and helped fund 27 lifesaving missions for the charity.

With all proceeds going towards the charity’s vital pre-hospital emergency service, the eighth annual golf day raised £42,000 - the most raised by this event so far. The fundraising total has helped fund 27 lifesaving missions carried out by the charity’s advanced clinical team, 13 by air ambulance and 14 by critical care car.

Pam Hodgetts, corporate partnerships manager at Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: “Thank you to all that took part on what was a fantastic day out. The incredible amount raised will make a lifesaving difference to our clinical service, funding future missions for across the six counties we cover.

“A special thanks goes to our main event sponsors at Phoenix Group, for providing us the opportunity to put the event on again and for their ever-continuing support. We would also like to thank our event sponsors at Hardy Signs, JT Recruit, Porsche Centre Wolverhampton and Worldwide Hospitality Group, well as our hole sponsors for making the event a huge success.”
