Fusion21 tees up charity donation

A St Helens based charity which aims to help vulnerable children and young people across the North West, has received a cash boost thanks to the golfing skills of Fusion21 staff. 

Retired members of the Chartered Institute of Housing hold the annual golf day to raise funds for charities and the 2015 event saw Fusion21 taking the spoils.

Dave Neilson, Chief Executive of Fusion21, said: “We entered a team of 4 and competed at Hurlston Hall near Ormskirk in glorious conditions. We defeated all comers with a magnificent 101 points with the nearest rival being on 95.”

The Fusion21 team consisted of Dave Neilson, Keith Rodgers, Mike Denning and Peter Barwick.

The charities to benefit this year included RNLI in New Brighton to the sum of £300 and Macmillan Nurses (Southport) for the same amount. In addition, as winners, a further £300 was available to Fusion21 to award and it went to the Boundary Lane based charity with a matched donation making the total amount presented being £600.

Ian Smith, who manages the Tunza’s Pride centre (http://www.tunzaspride.org.uk), said: ”This money will be used to help fund the activities we run for the kids. It will be put to very good use and we are very grateful to all those who took part in the golfing event.”
