|J Tomlinson and Andersen James present cheque to Nottingham Hospitals Charity|
J Tomlinson’s adopted charity has received a boost after the firm won the inaugural Andersen James Group Annual Charity Golf Day.
Held on the prestigious, world-famous Brabazon course at The Belfry, the J Tomlinson team held off stiff competition from the construction industry’s golfing fraternity to take home the winner’s trophy and the chance to hand over the donations from the day to the charity of their choice.
The Nottingham-based company opted to support Nottingham Hospitals Charity and when specialist construction sector recruitment company Andersen James Group kindly doubled donations made on the day, it ensured that the charity received a cheque for £1,060.
J Tomlinson CEO, Mark Davis, said: “We have recently chosen to support Nottingham Hospitals Charity as part of our commitment to investing back in our community. J Tomlinson has been an established company in Nottingham for decades and many of our staff and their loved ones have been cared for at Nottingham’s hospitals.
“We are delighted to be supporting the charity which directly supports the Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) research programmes, initiating local medical research, which can have worldwide implications for health, and we’ve got things off to a flying start by triumphing in a charity golf day.”
Andrew Hooker, Director at Andersen James Group, said: “Andersen James were delighted to be able to host what we hope is the first of many events to raise valuable funds for a variety of charities. Myself and co-Director James Leighton are privileged to host such a fun event at a fantastic venue and would like to thank all participants who took the time to take part. Congratulations to the winning team at J Tomlinson for their victory and we hope that the funds go some way in supporting the fantastic efforts by all at Nottingham Hospitals Charity.”
Barbara Cathcart, Chief Executive of Nottingham Hospitals Charity, said: “We are delighted that J Tomlinson have opted to support us as their chosen charity and it is great news that they won the golf day which enabled them to make a contribution to enhance care for patients and invest in local research at Nottingham’s hospitals.”
