Who better to give a boost to our patient care than the team at Boost Drinks?
The energy drink company hosted a golf day at Moor Allerton Golf Club in Leeds in memory of colleague and friend Ian Smith, who was a St Luke’s patient.
The event was a sell out, with teams made up of colleagues, suppliers and customers taking part.
As well as the golf, there were other fundraising activities held throughout the day, including a raffle and a live auction.
And by the time all the teams had reached the final hole, they had raised a fantastic £13,389 in support of our services.
“Our aim was to do something to mark the anniversary of Ian’s passing and a golf day seemed the perfect tribute,” saids Boost founder Simon Gray.
“It was fantastic to see so many of Ian’s friends, family and colleagues come together to celebrate his life and to raise money for such a wonderful cause at the same time.”
Our Senior Fundraising Manager Matthew Sheridan commented: “I never got to meet Ian but it was so clear from the story’s I was told by all the attendees that he had such a great, funny character and this was honoured throughout the day.”
