This year’s Charity Golf Day has smashed last year’s total, raising over £16,500 for York Against Cancer!
On Wednesday 14th June, our annual Golf Day was held at York Golf Club in Strensall. We were excited to welcome teams from across the country to take part in a day of golfing and fundraising, surpassing last year’s total with an impressive number of attendees and auction prizes.
Julie Russell, York Against Cancer CEO said; “The Golf Day is always a great day for everyone involved and this year was no different. The sun was shining and the turnout was fantastic. We are so grateful to each and every person that attended, provided prizes, helped organise and sponsor the event, without the support of everyone this day wouldn’t have been the success it was, so I want to say a big thank you to all involved.”

We had a total of 33 teams and 132 players taking part across the day. ‘The Hit & Hope Squad’ emerged victorious from the main competition of the 18 hole Stableford Competition with an impressive score of 99, and there were also prizes for second and third place along with a ‘Nearest the pin’ challenge.
The day was made such a success with the help of sponsors from Cellhire and YourMove Anscombs, and Raffle and Auction prizes including a 3-night stay in a Campervango motorhome, a £400 Roots voucher, 1st Class tickets with LNER, Betfred British Masters Hospitality tickets and many more.

Scott Anscomb, Managing Director of Your Move Anscombs said; “We are delighted with the amount raised for the charity and so grateful to all the teams who generously supported the day not only by playing but also with the raffle and auction which both raised record amounts. We were blessed with fabulous weather and all the teams remarked on the superb condition of the course at Strensall. Looking forward to next year!”
