The UK’s largest independent hotel group will host an event at each of its five UK golf venues, with all proceeds going towards helping the charity fund research into developing an effective treatment for low grade glioma, a rare form of childhood brain tumour.
Established by the parents of Thomas Broughton after the four-year-old passed away from a brain tumour in November 2015, Thomas’ Fund is a special named fund of Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG), a leading charity helping to fund and support research into childhood cancers.
Macdonald Hotels & Resorts has donated more than £2 million to various charitable causes through its guest-driven, ‘Make a Difference’ campaign over the last 15 years, and is hoping to raise more than £5,000 for the worthwhile cause.
Golfers are invited to take part in the charity golf days and can book their tee time at the following venues:
Keith Pickard, Group Director of Golf, Leisure & Spa at Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, said: “Macdonald Hotels & Resorts has always been committed to providing support to a range of children’s charities and we are proud to play our part in raising money for Thomas’ Fund and to help those in need.
“Every green fee will be collected across the five golf days, as well as money raised from the various competitions and raffles, and we will hopefully generate a significant amount of money that can be used to positively influence the lives of young people affected by this rare form of childhood brain tumour.”
Golfers taking part in the charity days will be able to enter nearest the pin and longest drive competitions, as well as a series of raffles, with a selection of special prizes on offer.
