72 holes of pain for a great cause


It’s currently 3 days after the epic day but I’m still feeling it. When Kevin Maddison ( Root Cause Consultancy) suggested a 72 hole golf marathon it sounded like a great idea. We have all done 36 in a day for competitions in the past… double that for a great cause seemed like a no brainer…

It wasn’t

I’m still finding pains in my knees that I haven’t had before! 

So why did Kevin, John Taylor (What’s in the bag) and Paul Sykes (Unite group) decide to miss England vs Germany in euro 2020…Well, it was for an amazing charity that is doing work that has the potential to help all of our lives. Its great to bring together the four ambassadors from the Sunderland and Newcastle Fore Business groups to make a difference across the region. 

Business Beats Cancer Newcastle is making a difference locally through fundraising, volunteer support and awareness raising of both the challenges and successes of people in the local area. 

We have so far managed to raise over £1800 from the day and hopefully this can continue to rise over £2000. If you have any spare pennies down the back of the sofa please throw them in the pot. They all make a difference however much they are.

There are so many laughs and stories from the day but you will have to ask the individuals involved for more clarity on those, how about I leave some words below to make the team laugh?
