LOROS Golf Day 2019
We have 16,000 big thank-yous to make.
For the 13th year we have had the honour of organising (and participating in) the annual LOROS Golf Day at Rothley Park Golf Club. LOROS is a Leicestershire charity caring for over 2,500 people across the city, the county and neighbouring Rutland, delivering free, high-quality, compassionate care and support to terminally ill patients, their family and carers.
This year, with a backdrop of “changeable” conditions, 19 teams took part in the golf day accompanied by a raffle and an auction. We are delighted to announce that this year we have helped raise £16,000 for the vital work that LOROS undertakes on a daily basis. This has bolstered the cumulative amount raised from SJ organised golf days over the last 13 years to a total in excess of £150,000. This amount in itself would pay for the running of the LOROS Home Visiting Service for 18 months. Something we are very proud of.
The winning team this year was from Charnwood Welding Supplies with the SJ Events team registering a credible third place (with no assistance from the organisers).
We get a lot out of organising this Golf Day. It is always a fun event with a serious undertone as the work LOROS does is so important for people, not just those navigating illness but their families and friends who share their journey.
We will be back again next year, to make it the best LOROS Golf Day yet…
