Our annual golf day, in partnership with CSP Systems, was a massive success, raising over £5000 for Sheffield-based charity Endeavour, which aims to enrich the lives of young people through education and adventure.
Held at Wortley Golf Club, the golf day attracted over 120 players from 30 local businesses and supply chain partners who played in a team competition with a number of individual prizes. This year saw the number of teams taking part increase, which has, in turn, increased the amount raised. The winning team was The Business Village, Chris Goddard from B&B Vehicle Contracts won nearest the pin on hole 9 whilst Graham Jamson from Coster UK won nearest the pin on the 16th. Ryan Hopeley from D&G Utilities won longest drive.
For our 3rd joint charity golf day, we chose Endeavour as our beneficiary because their mission to empower young people is very closely aligned with our own values and ambitions ‘ to enable people to be their best’. We are pleased to support Endeavour to create opportunities and support for more young people to develop skills, knowledge and confidence to enable them to fulfil their potential and create a positive future.
Ed Thatcher, CEO of Endeavour, commented, “It has been great to welcome Nicholas Associates Group & CSP Systems on board as a corporate partner. We really appreciate their support and also the opportunity to meet other potential partners through their golf day. It is vital that we continue to expand our partner network. Being part of this golf day has been a great opportunity to raise our profile and hopefully engage with potential new corporate partners.”
Endeavour was founded over 65 years ago by, Dick Allcock OBE, who shook up the ideal of youth work to challenge and motivate disadvantaged and deprived young people using outdoor activities. He pioneered the first ‘operation endeavour’ and was later inspired to establish the early foundations of Endeavour following a meeting with Sir John Hunt, who was a founder director of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and leader of the famous 1953 Mount Everest expedition. In order to help young people negotiate the digital world as well as the physical, today their focus has expanded beyond outdoor challenges to include literacy, academic development and health.
We’d like to thank Wortley Golf Club for hosting our event. We’re extremely thankful to everyone who participated on the day and made it such a fantastic success – we hope to build on this for next year.
