As an independent charity mainly funded by the people of Bolton, Cowgills has selected Bolton Hospice as its charity of the year for 2018, after they cared so wonderfully for Adrian Westwell, a partner at the firm who sadly died in 2016.
Commenting on the event, Rob Lord, partner at Cowgills said: “The golf day was a huge success. Not only did we manage to raise £7,000 for a wonderful cause, we also used the opportunity to bring many local businesses together to raise awareness for the hospice and we are extremely grateful for their involvement. I also have to thank Ian Orrell at Bolton Golf Club for his hospitality and the smooth running of the day.”
“We hope to see many of our clients getting involved in future events and as a firm we look forward to continuing our fundraising efforts to help the charity to continue its great work.”
Ian Orrell added: “It was a pleasure to host the Cowgills Golf Day. All teams enjoyed the golf whilst also raising a significant amount of money for a great local cause.”
For more than 25 years, Bolton Hospice has provided expert care and support for local people facing terminal or life-limiting illnesses, helping to improve their wellbeing and quality of life, as well as offering support to many of their loved ones.
Alice Atkinson, director of income generation and communications at the Hospice said: “We’d like to thank Cowgills for their fantastic support and for choosing to raise vital funds for Bolton Hospice throughout 2018 as their charity of the year. The funds raised will help the hospice to provide expert care and support local people with terminal or life-limiting illnesses, either at the hospice or through our Hospice at Home service.”
The golf day is part of a wider programme of fundraising activity for Cowgills. This November, they will be the headline sponsor for The Big Bolton Ball, which will see Bolton Hospice and Bolton Lads & Girls club join forces to celebrate the life-changing work they both do as well as helping raise funds for both organisations.
