£10k golf day boost for mental health charity

Channel players swung into action for ICT charity Mental Health Associates (MHA) last month, supporting the charity’s inaugural golf day staged at the famous Brocket Hall course in Hertfordshire.

Nineteen teams participated, including foursomes representing Comms Care, Cisco, Daisy Group, Gamma, Oak Telecom, Restore Technology, Union Street and Virtual1.

Restore Technology won the team tournament, lifting the Nick Dutfield Memorial Trophy, with second place going to Union Street. The nearest the pin prize went to Gamma’s Richard Bligh.

The trophies were presented by former Essex and England cricketer Ronnie Irani.

Organiser and MHA founder Peter Orr said: “The event was really well supported, and I would like to thank everyone who played, our hole sponsors Restore Technology, Retore Datashred, Comms Care, Purity Hemp and Gamma, plus our long-term supporters James Emm from Oak and Jose Sanchez from Cisco, who helped promote the day. We raised over £10,000 which is a magnificent result and will help us fund the recruitment of more MHA Associates who will assist anyone in the ICT industry suffering from mental health issues. We look forward to welcoming everyone again next year.”
