Togel Contractors donates funds to various charities every year, and were inspired to donate to the Chatsfield Suite to improve cancer care in Doncaster after members of their staff and their families were affected by the disease.
The £6,000 donation was raised at a company golf day on 14 June. Competitions were organised to encourage attendees to donate including a hole-in-one, a ‘yellow ball’ competition where players try not to lose their one yellow ball, and ‘beat the pro.’ The holes on the main course were sponsored by Togel’s suppliers and sub-contractors.
Katie Gillott, Marketing Coordinator, Togel Contractors Ltd said: “Personally I think this year’s Golf Day was our best yet. The feedback we have received has been amazing but most importantly, I’m astounded at the generosity of all those involved. This is a cause close to our hearts and we are all delighted that the funds will be used towards improving the equipment and environment for the patients and their families. We’d like to thank all the staff at the Chatsfield suite, the golfers, their companies and all our employees for the outstanding commitment and support they provide year on year.”
Donations to the Chatsfield suite are used to fund extras which mean the centre can offer services and comforts beyond care and treatment. In the past, donations have been used to renovate a breakout room for patients and visitors, to purchase iPads to entertain patients during long treatment sessions such as chemotherapy and to have a councillor and wig fitter on site for patients to access easily.
Lara Cunnane-Reay, Sister on the Chatsfield Suite, said: “We can’t thank Togel Contractors enough for this amazing donation. Donations like these mean that we can offer our patients more than just treatment, we can offer them a place to come where they feel comfortable and extra support to help them through tough times.”
The Trust recently launched its very own charity, called ‘Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals Charity’ (DBTH Charity), in a bid to make it even easier for local people to support the Trust.
