MKM Anlaby Charity Golf Day

MKM Anlaby were proud to sponsor the HEY Smile Foundation Golf Day, held on 15th July at Hull Golf Club.

In its sixth year, The golf day was attended by 25 teams of four, playing the 18-hole course. Everyone who attended the event were welcomed to a champagne breakfast sponsored by MKM before teeing off. Hole 13, was also sponsored by MKM and an auction prize was also donated.

The golf day, was a full day of golfing followed by a BBQ and entertainment in the form of a Lady Gaga tribute.

Ian Pratt, Branch Director at MKM Anlaby, is a member of the organising committee for the day, and said “The golf day was another sell out with 25 teams taking part. The teams looked fantastic in the matching J Lindeberg clothes and that linked with the excellent course and facilities, and fantastic weather made it a great day to be part of. The day raises money for the Smile Foundation and this year we managed to raise £13k which I think is a remarkable result.”

Andy Barber, Charity Director from Smile Foundation said: “A lot of hard work is put into the event by the Smile team, our partners EYG, MKM, Santander, Hugh Rice and Arrival alongside Aaron and the Hull Golf Club team to ensure the team have a first class experience, and each year thanks to that effort and the quality of projects delivered with the funds raised we struggle to fit all the requested teams in.”

The event raised over £13,000 for the charity, which will be used as part of “The Vault” which provides charities and community groups across Hull and East Yorkshire access to various resources which will enable them to develop their services within the region.
