The Independent Builders Merchant Group (IBMG) charity golf day, including Parker Building Supplies, Chandlers Building Supplies and Fairalls Builders Merchant, raised in excess of £16,700.00 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Held at the East Sussex National, the golf day welcomed 160 guests throughout the day divided into 36 competing golf teams. Twenty-three suppliers were also present to exhibit their products and services. An auction put 15 prizes under the hammer to raise more funds.

Allun Pittingale, IBMG’s Group MD South East, said: “A massive thank you to all our customers, suppliers and sponsors for supporting our charity golf day. Teenage Cancer Trust is a wonderful charity that does so much for teenagers going through incredibly difficult times. Thanks also to our many colleagues who dedicated personal time to organising this great event - it is thrilling to be able to hand over this amazing amount to the charity.”

Lynn Hyder of  Teenage Cancer Trust said: “We cannot thank you enough. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire golf day and are astounded by the continued hard work and generosity of everyone at Chandlers, Parker and Fairalls Builders Merchants as well as all their suppliers and customers. Cancer can have a devastating effect on young people at a time when their whole lives are ahead of them, so your support will really make a difference.”
