Moor Allerton GC – The Club…
Moor Allerton Golf Club has a history of generous fundraising for charity.
Since its incorporation in 1923, the club and its members have always recognised the need to support deserving charities.
After 90 successful years and in view of the club’s history and the charity work of its members the idea of creating a Charitable Foundation was born to take a more strategic view of the club`s charity work.
The Foundation has been created to support mainly local, Yorkshire-based charities, that work with others who are less fortunate in our society.
These will essentially be smaller charities, particularly those working with children the elderly or health sectors.
We believe this is the area where our contribution can make the most significant difference.
Paul Collins, Director of Sales and Marketing for Moor Allerton Golf Club said“We are really proud to be hosting the UK’s first ever Golf and Business Festival – this is a completely unique event which we hope will bring together some of Yorkshire’s finest businesses with high profile sports people and celebrities in a beautiful setting. We hope to ‘tee up’ some new opportunities for all involved, as well as to raise money for some really great local causes.”
All proceeds from Yorkshire Golf & Business Festiva will be donated to a range of charities including Yorkshire Air Ambulance, The Golf Foundation, Simon on the Streets, St. Gemma’s Hospice and the Leeds United Foundation.
