Leading pitched roof tile manufacturer, Russell Roof Tiles (RRT) hosted another successful annual Golf Day to raise vital funds to reach the goal of £50,000 for their charity initiative, Give 4 Good.
Close to the manufacturers’ Burton-on-Trent site, the Golf Day tournament took place at Horsley Lodge Golf Club, Ilkeston in Derbyshire, and was one of many charity Golf Days carried out by the team to raise funds for local causes.
Almost 80 players attended the huge event, including company employees, and individuals that work with RRT from Wheeldon Homes, Liberty Roofing, Northwest Roofing Supplies, Steadfast Roofing, Absolute Roofing Solutions, PJ Colours, Barclays, SDN Pallets, Ecopac, Kingsley Roofing, Thomas Cassie Roofing, Hodgkinson Builders, Trentside Cricket Club and Vortex.
The event raised £5,000, totalling the Give 4 Good pot up to over £35,000. Russell Roof Tiles launched ‘Give 4 Good’. A project in celebration of 10 years of Russell Roof Tiles’ independence, which donates money to good causes in the local area. This year they are aiming to raise a total of £50,000.
Ross Hayward, Area Sales Manager at Russell Roof Tiles, said: “I would like to thank all the companies who came along supported us on the day and to those that donated. It all helps towards raising our goal of £50,000 for our Give 4 Good charity. This year, the Golf Day was a great way of being able to raise further funds and add to the pot for our chosen charities.”
