Leading accountancy firm raises thousands for children’s mental health charity at annual golf event

Worcestershire-based accountancy firm, Hayward Wright, held its Annual Charity Golf Day last week in partnership with YoungMinds – a leading charity that fights for young people’s mental health by providing a range of support to children, young adults, parents, and those who work with children.

The event, which was held at Olton Golf Club in Solihull, brought together more than 100 individuals from a range of businesses in the West Midlands and Worcestershire and raised an incredible £7,824 for the charity.

Despite some challenging weather conditions, guests enjoyed a day of networking and golf which was kicked off by Hayward Wright’s Managing Director, Alistair Hayward-Wright, and Practice Manager Sam Paice as they presented the format of the day and a short series of videos on the important role that YoungMinds plays.

To raise money for YoungMinds the team at Hayward Wright had several initiatives running on the day including auctioning off a range of tees in the morning and with Olton’s Pro taking a drive for players for a donation. The golf was then followed by a three-course dinner and charity auction which helped raise further funds for the charity.

The event received incredible support from the local business community including a wide range of sponsors with commercial property consultancy, Siddall Jones, Blackstar Mortgages, Bagworld, F8, Xero, and Bold IT all supporting the day.

Commenting on the success of the event, Alistair Hayward-Wright said: “We cannot thank all those that attended and our sponsors enough for helping us deliver a great event and for their generosity which has helped us raise a significant amount of money for YoungMinds – an organisation that plays a critical role in supporting children and young people with mental health issues. It was a great day, and we were delighted to see so many businesses from across the region taking part and look forward to building on the success next year at our 2024 event.”
