A charity golf day attended by almost 100 players has raised £4,500 for The Joshua Tree.

The Persimmon Homes Golf Day was held at Wychwood Park Golf Club in Crewe.

Karl Wiseman, Managing Director of Persimmon Homes North West, said: “We were delighted to raise such a significant sum for The Joshua Tree, which continues to do such outstanding work supporting families affected by childhood cancers.”

The Persimmon Golf Day saw 24 fourballs tee off with teams made up of staff members, sub-contractors, supply chain colleagues and guests. Prizes were given out to the top 3 placed golfers, as well as for the longest drive, nearest the pin and beat the pro.

The golf event was followed by an evening dinner with charity auction, where the guest speaker was former Everton striker Duncan McKenzie.

Karl added: “It was a hugely successful day and my thanks go to everyone who attended and helped us raise so much money for such an amazing cause.”
