With sponsorship from Avient, Horizon Flooring, Churchill Recovery Services and St Helens Law; businesses from across Knowsley came together for a day of golfing at Huyton and Prescot Golf Club, before an evening meal and entertainment from comedian and sports impersonator Darren Farley.
The evening came to a close with an auction and the announcement of fourth, third, second and first place; with the winners being Britannia Electrical Group.
Peter Mitchell, Executive Chair of the Big Help Project said: “The first annual golf day marks the official re-start of the Big Help Project’s event calendar, and we are already making plans for next years’ Golf day. It was a pleasure to meet friends from so many businesses, and we are humbled at the incredible generosity of all those that put a team forward and freely gave their time, donations and support.”
Michele Duckworth, Fundraiser for the Big Help Project said: “We are delighted to see that our first major event since lockdown was received as such as great success. It was wonderful to see friends and supporters of the Big Help Project, and to receive such generous donations of auction and raffle prizes from across the Knowsley and Liverpool business community. The event raised over £7,000 and will make a huge difference in supporting people in the community who might not only be struggling with food crisis, but also unemployment, debt and welfare rights problems, and preparing for a new baby.”
