Fernox fundraises fruitfully at charity golf day

Published:  26 June, 2014

Fernox has raised over £10,000 at its fifth annual charity golf day for charities Scotty’s Little Soldiers and Shooting Star Chase.

The golf day was once again hosted at the Whitefield’s Golf Club in Warwickshire in May, and was attended by boiler manufacturers, merchants and installers who had travelled from all over the UK. In addition to the golf tournament, attendees also participated in awards, a charity auction and raffle.

Greg Banham, sales director for Fernox, said: “We are delighted that our annual charity golf day was another great success and it was fantastic to see so many industry faces joining us. It is with their support that we have been able to raise these much needed funds for not just one, but two, charities that are close to our hearts. Our thanks go to everyone that took part.”

Over the last five years, Fernox has raised £54,773.32 for Shooting Star Chase and Scotty's Little Soldiers, as well as for The Carl Burrows Trust and Action for Children.
