The first annual Paul Stancliffe Charity Golf Day was held on the 28 September 2012, with an aql team taking part to help raise money for Myeloma UK and Crohn’s and Colitis UK.
The charity event took place at West Bradford Golf Club, where the event’s organiser, Paul Stancliffe, is the club professional. A total of 24 four-man teams took to the course during the day on which a great time was had for two very good causes.
aql’s team, led by company accountant Colin Ward, came fifth in the event which raised over £3,500 that was split between both charities.
“The day was a great success, particularly given the amount of money raised for charity,” said Colin. “I’m a member of West Bradford Golf Club, and I’m delighted that aql were able to field a team for such a worthy cause.”
Myeloma UK provides support to 12-14,000 people in the UK living with myeloma – an increasingly common cancer affecting plasma cells in bone marrow.
Crohn’s and Colitis UK helps people throughout the UK living with the two biggest causes of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
