A charity golf day is set to be held next month in memory of a local businessman.
KLH Architects has announced details of its fundraising initiative, which will see proceeds go to the Nick Fayers Amend Fund.
The fund was established following the death of the former managing director of Barnes Construction. He lost his life last December to a condition known as Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia 1 (MEN1).
KLH has now been running its charity golf day for five years, each time selecting a local cause to support.
Graham Lambert, director of KLH Architects, said: “Our charity golf day has been a huge success over the years with multiple teams taking part to help raise money for worthwhile causes.
It’s a fantastic day and we have enormous support from the local community with regular teams coming back again and again.”
He added: “This year we wanted to celebrate the life and good work of Nick, who many of us at KLH knew personally, as well as helping to increase the awareness of his condition to the wider community.”
The event will be held on 23rd April at Brett Vale Golf Club.
Teams of four from the local construction industry have entered the 18-hole challenge with the opportunity to compete in the coveted KLH ball competition. There will be a prize giving ceremony and raffle draw for participants with prizes donated by local companies and individuals.
Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia 1 or MEN1 is a rare inherited condition that causes tumours to develop in endocrine glands. The Nick Fayers Amend Fund intends to raise much needed funds to support research into the condition and advice to sufferers.
