Local Cancer Charity Host a ‘Tee-rific’ Day for Companies at Malone Golf Club

On the greens of the prestigious Malone Golf Club, many local companies ‘link-ed’ up for a day of golf for an important cause. On April 18th, Cancer Focus Northern Ireland hosted some of the top businesses in Northern Ireland for their annual Corporate Golf Day, the event was a huge success with the organisation raising almost £15K, which will go a long way in helping the charity to continue providing vital services to local people on their cancer journey, right here in Northern Ireland.  

Rosie Forsythe, Corporate and Community Fundraising Manager said: 

“We were absolutely thrilled with the overwhelming support from local companies who attended our annual Corporate Golf Day. We were delighted to have some regular businesses join us again on the green, along with some new organisations and faces. We are immensely grateful for the support from those who took part to make the day another huge success and contributing to the almost £15k raised for Cancer Focus Northern Ireland. Without the support of local businesses, we wouldn’t be able to support the 40,000 people that we do each year through our cancer support services and cancer prevention initiatives.” 


It was a day filled with variety as the local cancer charity had plenty to keep attendees entertained, with test drives provided by Tesla and a fleet display from Charles Hurst. Swift Forge where on hand to personalise ball markers for players and Ruth Gorman hosted a fantastic evening for players after a day on the course with an exclusive Q&A with former Ireland Rugby Player and BBC Sports Presenter, Andy Ward.   

Cancer Focus Northern Ireland is a local charity that relies on passionate businesses and dedicated members of the community to fund 90% of their work. For every £1 raised, 80p is spent directly in the delivery of the charity’s cancer services and invested into pioneering local research. All funds raised stay right here in Northern Ireland to support people affected by cancer. Donations make a massive impact, £480 pays for 6 counselling sessions for someone going through a cancer diagnosis or bereavement.    

Last year the charity launched an ambitious plan to open five Cancer Support Centres in towns and cities across Northern Ireland. The first of these will open in Enniskillen in late 2024. Businesses will play a massive role in the charity’s strategic direction over the coming months and years by ensuring the delivery and sustainability of these Cancer Support Centres.
