Oldham-based business finance firm PMD has raised £2,891 of vital funds for its adopted charity, Children with Cancer UK.

The money was raised during the firm’s annual golf day, which this year took place at Worsley Golf Club, Manchester, with more than 90 guests playing in a 4-person team format to boost funds for the important charity.

Peter Dobson, managing director of PMD, said: “Children with Cancer UK is our adopted charity and we’re proud to support them so they can continue to carry out the valuable work they do. As a firm, we decided to support Children with Cancer UK because we all recognise the vital work they’re doing and how important it is to support their cause.”

“It was a beautiful day and we played in perfect autumnal sunshine. This was the fourth time we held our annual golf day to raise funds for the charity, as it’s one that’s close to our hearts in many ways and we’re delighted to support it in any way we can.”

Children with Cancer UK is the leading national charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. They aim to determine the causes, find cures and provide care for children with cancer.

Peter added: “It was a great turnout for the day, with clients, suppliers, funders and friends all supporting us and 24 teams taking part. The proceeds have now been donated to the charity and the day was met with some really good feedback. We’re looking forward to continuing our support of Children with Cancer UK and helping to support them with the vital work they’re doing.”

Mark Brider, Children with Cancer UK acting CEO, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to PMD Business Finance for supporting Children with Cancer UK with their golf day. Thanks to supporters like PMD, Children with Cancer UK is able to fund vital lifesaving childhood cancer research to improve survival rates and the quality of survival in children and young people.”
