The Purpose Media team would like to say a huge thank-you to everyone involved in our annual charity golf day earlier this week – with your charitable support, we helped raise over £4,500 for NWG Network – a national, East Midlands-based charity which aims to tackle child sexual exploitation across the UK.
Teams representing a host of local businesses took part in the golf day at Morley Hayes Golf Club, and we couldn’t have wished for a better day.
Well done to the guys from Rhodes Wealth Management, who scooped the top prize with a score of 85. The Alternative Board (83) and Santander (82) shared the spoils for second and H Roberts & Sons finished third, on 81.
Nearest the pin on Hole 12 was Phil Ball from Alpha Rail, Tony Hornsby from Santander won the longest drive contest on Hole 13 and his colleague, Paul Pownall, was nearest the pin on Hole 16.
Take a look at some of the highlights and actions shots below – and congratulations to all our winners and close runners up!
Matt Wheatcroft, our managing director, said: “We’re delighted to have raised so much money for such a worthy local cause and I would like to express my personal thanks to all of the businesses and players who got behind our golf day this year.
NWG Network CEO Sheila Taylor MBE said: “We are extremely grateful to Purpose Media for holding this golf day for us and raising so much funding on our behalf.
“There are many forms of child sexual exploitation and the complexities of these issues require professional support and national mass awareness. Child sexual exploitation is often hidden from view and goes completely unnoticed. Vulnerable young girls and boys are groomed and then abused, often leaving them traumatised and scarred for life.
“NWG Network is committed to practitioner training and raising public awareness, having trained more than 17,000 people about child sexual exploitation in one region alone.
“The funding we have received from this event will help us to continue this invaluable work and ensure as many people as possible think, spot and speak out against exploitation of the young and vulnerable and to help to heal the wounds of victims and their families.”
