Golf Day Raises £5,500 for Francis House Children’s Hospice

Francis House Charity Childrens Hospice Francis Kirk Golf Day

Francis Kirk Group has held a successful charity golf day raising an impressive £5,500 for Francis House Children’s Hospice.

The event at Davenport Golf Club was the first in a series of fund-raising initiatives by the leading Denton-based engineering and fastener firm on behalf of the charity.

Attracting over 80 golfers the day was packed with opportunities to win spot prizes like nearest the pin on the four par threes, longest drive on the 11th hole and Beat the Pro on the scenic 14th.

Francis Kirk attracted sponsors for every hole and sourced a great selection of auction and raffle prizes with the support of Old Trafford, Ollier Photography and Arighi Bianchi in Macclesfield.


Enjoying a sunny afternoon golfers also got the chance to use Mulligans – another fund-raising initiative – where you could take up to 3 shots again for £5.

Managing Director of Francis Kirk Group Tom Kirk said: “The weather was perfect and we had fantastic support from players and sponsors – it was a pleasure to organise.”

Francis House supports hundreds of families from across the north west of England by providing respite care for children, teenagers and young adults with life-limiting conditions.

Lucy Thompson, Events Manager for the charity, who helped run the day, commented: “The atmosphere was great and people were very generous with their donations and bids. All the money raised goes directly to the Hospice which give children and their families the care they need. We could not do it without monies raised from events like this.’’

Tom again: “We wanted to start a golf day that we could run again next year – even bigger and better – to mark a special year for us. We were blown away by the enthusiasm of everyone who got involved.”
