Golf Day Secures Hole in One for Air Ambulance

Posted on 4 Aug 2017 by Alexis Outram - News

Streets Charity Golf Day 2017

We hosted our sixth annual Charity Golf Day last month which raised an incredible £6,039 for the Air Ambulance.

The total amount fundraised will be divided between our three regional charities; East Anglian Air Ambulance, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The event received fantastic support with 30 teams taking part and more than 30 local businesses sponsoring the day. There were Stableford individual and team prizes as well as competitions such as Longest Drive, Nearest the Pin, Beat the Pro and Hole in One, which was achieved by one of the players for the first time this year.

Sally Crawford, Deputy CEO of the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance said: “The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance would like to thank Streets Chartered Accountants once again for organising their annual charity golf day.  This year was their sixth and most successful event to date, raising vital funds for the new Ambucopter that arrived with the Charity in June.”

Barbara McGee, Fundraising Manager at the East Anglian Air Ambulance said: “During the month of June this year we attended 224 missions. We value the continued support of Streets Chartered Accountants, who enable us to keep our helicopters flying over the skies of East Anglia.

“To be associated with a local firm is so important to us and gives us the opportunity to raise the awareness of the fantastic work our crews do on a daily basis. Thank you for all that you do. Together we save lives.”

Bob Smailes, Regional Fundraising Manager at the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, said: “Streets once again go the extra mile for the Yorkshire air ambulance, raising over £2,000 making a total to date of over £10,000.

“A fantastic amount which helps keep our life saving service in the air”.

Commenting on the day, Streets Partner Mark Bradshaw, said: "The support received this year has been truly overwhelming and has helped us raise a staggering £6,039 for our three local Air Ambulance services.

“We have more than doubled the fundraising total since our inaugural golf day and we’re still only in our sixth year! We’re delighted to be able to support our local Air Ambulance Services, who are the true winners of the day.

“A very big thank you goes to all those people who sponsored, donated, gave their time and helped in some way, without whom the day would not be possible.”

Streets’ seventh Charity Golf Day is being held on Friday 13th July 2018 at Lincoln Golf Club, Torksey.
