Businesses across Sheffield clubbed together at Hallamshire Golf Club for a Golf Day which raised more than £27,000, pushing the total raised for Neurocare beyond £100,000 over the last four years.

The Golf Day attracted more than 45 teams drawn from local South Yorkshire businesses who competed throughout the day.

The money raised was donated to Neurocare which supports the neurological centre of excellence at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust which treats patients with a range of neurological conditions.

Beth Porter, Neurocare Fundraiser said: “It’s fantastic to know that all of our hard work has paid off, and being able to say we’ve raised over £100,000 with IFM as our sponsors is incredible.

“That amount of money is going to make a tremendous difference to so many people who access our support.

“The work Neurocare supports is vital, and the funds raised with the help of companies like IFM cover the costs of vital research, and help to improve the quality of care and treatment that local patients receive.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank IFM who have been amazing to work with. Finding such incredible sponsors is hard for any charity, but finding a business that is both so helpful and involved in organising this event has been an added bonus. We’re so excited to continue our partnership with IFM and see what else we can achieve together!”

Mark Barlow, MD of IFM Insurance, said: “It was great that so many local businesses took time out to help raise this fantastic sum for such a great cause.

“We had some fun along the way but most importantly, Neurocare was the real winner on the day.”
