Charity golf day raises vital funds for Pendleside Hospice

Nelson-based hotplate manufacturer Sugden has raised over £1,200 for Pendleside Hospice through a charity golf day.

The event, which took place at Marsden Park Golf Club, saw 60 players compete over 18 holes on Friday 4th June. They included employees from a range of North-West businesses, including Sugden, CFE Lighting and Baldwin Technical Services, with the golf followed by a prize ceremony and BBQ.

The company, which employs 38 people at its Pendle Court headquarters in Nelson, has now raised almost £3,000 over the last three years for the charity through a range of activities, including a cake baking competition and a sponsored run.

David Clegg, project manager at Sugden, said:


“The day proved a huge success, with 60 players making the most of the warm weather to enjoy some excellent golf.

“Most importantly, we were able to raise a further £1,200 for Pendleside Hospice, an incredible local charity that we’re immensely proud to support through our fundraising activities.”

Pendleside Hospice is a registered charity providing care for the special needs of adults with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses in Burnley & Pendle.

Christina Cope, head of corporate fundraising at Pendleside Hospice said:

“We’d like to say a heartfelt thank you to the team at Sugden and everyone who took part in the golf day.

“Your fundraising efforts are enormously appreciated and help to sustain our vital work.”
