More than 60 people from across the window, door and supporting industries attended Endurance Doors’ charity golf day last month, which leaders have described as a success. This year’s event took place at Elsham Golf Club in Brigg, north Lincolnshire, on Wednesday 27 September.
The event was in aid of the Lindsey Lodge Hospice in Scunthorpe, north Lincolnshire, which is geographically close to Endurance Doors’ production site. The Lindsey Lodge team provides palliative care for both day and inpatients affected by life-limiting conditions.
The charity’s services include physiotherapy, lymphoedema treatment, nursing, emergency and end-of life-care, as well as bereavement and family support. As an independent charity, the charity relies heavily on donations from both individuals and organisations to continue its 30-year history and to meet its annual running costs of approximately £3.7m.
The day’s winning team consisted of Rob Pryde, product design manager of Willerby; Wayne Dowie and Alan Clarke, representatives of Spartan Windows; and Gaz Mellor, who attended as a guest. Ben Chamberlin, representing Metsä, won the prize for the longest drive.
Scott Foster, sales and marketing director at Endurance Doors, said: “Endurance Doors has a firm commitment to corporate social responsibility and to playing a positive role within our local communities and society as a whole. Our annual charity golf day reflects this and enables us to build on our already strong relationship with customers and suppliers whilst raising funds for such an important and worthy cause as Lindsey Lodge.
“On behalf of the entire Endurance Doors team, I would like to thank all those involved in the event and especially our sponsors whose continued support and generosity makes the day possible.”
Sponsors of the Endurance Doors’ charity golf day included Vekaplan, Metsä, Dugdale, ODL Europe, ERA, and Business Micros. Read more about the business online at this link.
