Kestrel installer golf day putts £5,000 for charity
Kestrel register installer DMD Installations has raised more than £5,000 for children’s charities with a gala golf event.
The Norfolk-based company attracted around 120 people to a charity golf day, which swelled to 170 for the evening gala dinner.
uPVC building products manufacturer Kestrel sponsored the putting challenge as well as one of the course holes.
Kestrel business development manager for the Midlands Neil Bennett congratulated DMD on the event.
“With proceeds going to charities including Great Ormond Street Hospital, the East Anglian Children’s Hospice (EACH) and the neonatal unit at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, it was a great event that took a lot of organisation,” he said.
“From the golf itself through to the gala dinner and roulette tables, the day met the high standards that DMD Installations set themselves in everything they do.”
Charlotte Peruzzi of DMD Installations explained that the inspiration for the event came after DMD Installations founder Dean Peruzzi took part in the Stanley McLean Trust golf day, which also raises money for EACH and Great Ormond Street.
“Dean realised that everyone had a great time raising money for charity and thought we could do the same,” Charlotte said.
“The first year we had 90 people attend, which we were delighted with, but this year that almost doubled.
“The day takes a lot of organisation, but it is definitely worth it and I would like to thank the sponsors and everyone who attended for helping us to raise £5260 on the day.
“We’re already planning how to make next year’s fundraiser even bigger and better!”
Kestrel distributor Total Plastics Dean Davies also supported the event and joined Neil Bennett on the golf course.
