SteelPhalt golfers raise £500 for our patient care

LEADING South Yorkshire road surface specialists SteelPhalt raised £500 for St Luke’s as they took to the greens for their annual charity golf day.

Eight teams of four competed in the sporting challenge which was held at Rotherham Golf Club in Thrybergh.

And all money raised during the day is going direct to our patient care.

“We like to support a different charity at every golf day and, knowing how much St Luke’s depends on public support, we decided that the hospice would make the prefect choice for our 2017 event,” said SteelPhalt Business Development Manager Lee Birkbeck.

Our Corporate Fundraising Manager Jack Kidder commented: “We were delighted to be chosen as the charity for this year’s SteelPhalt golf day.

“It’s great that a leading South Yorkshire business recognises the importance of the work being carried out at St Luke’s and the fact that we depend on this level of support to raise the £6.2 million we need annually to ensure we can continue to provide our current levels of care for all our patients and their families.”

The SteelPhalt plant in Sheffield Road, Rotherham, converts steel slag into a surface course for road making.

It achieves high skid resistance - enhancing road safety for both drivers and pedestrians - and maintains it throughout the whole life of the road, also avoiding the use of quarried materials and the landfill of residual slag product.

The exceptional strength and durability of steel slag extends the life of the road and lengthens road maintenance intervals for resurfacing.

The company’s products include SteelStop, SteelSurf, SteelPave and SteelFlow.
