Two of East Yorkshire’s most high-profile charities have cheered the contributions in cash and kind of the region’s business community after the latest fundraising event by leading law firm Rollits LLP.
More than 22 clients and contacts of the firm took part in Rollits’ annual charity golf day at Brough Golf Club and helped to raise over £3,500 for Dove House Hospice and Muscular Dystrophy UK.
Two of the region’s major charities breathed a sigh of relief as businesses provided a fundraising boost by taking to the golf course for the first time in nearly two years.
Dove House Hospice and Muscular Dystrophy UK expect to receive a significant cash injection from the proceeds of the Rollits’ Charity Golf Day which took place at Brough Golf Cub and attracted 20 teams from the firm, its clients and contacts.
A law firm which has been driving support for charities for more than 30 years with its annual golf day is drawing up a list of fundraising ideas for all after losing this year’s event to the lockdown restrictions.
Rollits, which has offices in Hull and York, has raised more than £140,000 since launching its golf day in 1970, with the East Yorkshire branch of Muscular Dystrophy UK a beneficiary since day one and Dove House Hospice in Hull receiving support for 25 years.
Staff, clients and visitors at a business centre in Hull have launched the final push in their campaign to collect unwanted Christmas presents in support of Dove House Hospice.
The team at The Deep Business Centre are urging members of the public to join them in the effort to donate as many items as possible by the end of this month to help Dove House build a stock of prizes for raffles and tombolas.
Dove House Hospice in Hull has secured a donation of over £2,000 thanks to money generated by Co-op’s members in the local area.
The money has been raised as part of Co-op’s membership scheme, whereby Co-op members receive a five per cent reward for themselves with a further one per cent going to local causes when they buy selected own-brand products or Co-op services.
