Wirral Mayor’s Charity
We were honoured to have been named one of the chosen charities for last year for the Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Steve Foulkes. Throughout the year the Mayor hosted a number of fundraising events, starting with the Mayor’s Ball on 17th October at Thornton Hall Hotel. .
Golf Day 2014
Our Golf Day this year was a huge success, raising a spectacular £29,000.
Following on from last year’s success there were some great golfers from around the area playing in support of Stick ‘n’ Step once more, including many famous faces from the sporting world such as, ex Liverpool, Everton and Manchester United stars.
It was a fun filled and lively atmosphere as golfers brought friends and family members along to take part in extra competitions and enjoy the evening’s entertainment. The evening consisted of a prize giving ceremony for the winners of the competitions and an auction of signed memorabilia from sports personalities, including stars of the country’s leading football teams.
Commented Rob Palmer: “As Ambassador for Stick ‘n’ Step, I organise the charity golf day every year and always want it to be a success. I am constantly overwhelmed by the generosity and support from everyone who attends, and this year has been no exception. The amount of money raised will go a long way and I cannot thank those involved enough. Being one of the parents who has been involved from the start, the annual golf day is very important to me and I am delighted to see it doing so well. Every time I visit the centre the children are making unbelievable progress and it reminds me of why Stick ‘n’ Step remains so close to my heart.”
Commented Sarah Smithson, operations manager at Stick ‘n’ Step: “The day has been brilliant and we are thankful to Rob, the sponsors and those who attended for making it such a success. The amount raised is phenomenal and everyone involved has had an enjoyable day. I am very much looking forward to next year’s event.”
We look forward to the next one!
