Corporate golf event set to boost funds for Teenage Cancer Trust

A number of avid golfers are scheduled to tee-off with Jennings Motor Group for an afternoon of birdies, bogies and eagles - and it’s all to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust in the North East.

48 golfers, consisting of members of staff from Jennings Motor Group, as well as the company’s business suppliers, will be teeing off on Tuesday 22nd May at Teesside Golf Club on Acklam Road in Thornaby, Stockton, in a bid to boost funds for the motor dealer group’s chosen charity for 2018.

Teenage Cancer Trust, a registered charity, provides life-changing care and support to teenagers and young adults, so they don’t have to face cancer alone.

Following an afternoon on the fairway, participants will enjoy a meal in the Clubhouse, where the winners will be presented with various prizes, in addition to taking part in an auction and a raffle.

Two of the auction prizes include a hotel/spa break for two at Grey Street Hotel in Newcastle, and a Four Ball Golf Day at Rockliffe Hall Hotel in County Durham.

Managing director of Jennings Motor Group, Nas Khan OBE, said: “We’re very much looking forward to the event, which is expected to boost fundraising for a very worthy cause in the region.

“At the end of the day, it’s all about having fun and raising as much as we can for our chosen charity, Teenage Cancer Trust in the North East.”

In February, Jennings Motor Group kick-started fundraising for the charity with an ‘Eat Me Up and Fill Me Up’ promotion for staff.  Each member of staff was given a tube of Smarties with the aim to fill them up with 20p pieces, to cover the £12 cost of overnight accommodation for a relative or friend needing to stay at the charity’s Units, based at The Great North Children’s Hospital and The Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.

Sonia Graham, regional fundraiser at Teenage Cancer Trust, said; “We are really looking forward to Jennings Motor Group’s golf day, which is a great way for them, together with other local businesses, to raise vital funds to support young people locally.

“Young people with cancer need specialist nursing and support.  Right now, we can only help half of young people with cancer with our world-leading nursing.  That’s why our partnership with Jennings Motor Group is so important.  Their support will mean that we can help more young people with cancer get the specialised nursing they so desperately need.”
