Matalan Golfers Raise over £63,000 in Aid of retailTRUST
Matalan's Golf Day, held in aid of retailTRUST raised over an astonishing £63,000 (net) last Thursday (4th September), the largest total in the history of the charity.
The morning began with a fantastic trick shot show with the self proclaimed "Trick Shot King", Jeremy Dale. This preceeded a fantastic day of golf with the grand prize being a one year's membership to Worsley Park, worth over £5,000.
Following the 18 holes of golf, the winners were presented with their trophies and the chance to relax before pre-dinner drinks, a delicious three course meal and some wonderful entertainment provided by former Manchester United and England midfielder, Lee Sharpe and comedian Josh Daniels.
Matalan Retail and HR Director, Mike Jeans, said:
"I would like to thank everyone for their support and generosity through golf teams, dinner places, spa days, advertising, donations and prize donations. Your support has made this the best golf day yet."
Every penny raised from the event will go directly to retailTRUST to look after the needs of all those working in retail and its supported services, improving lives for all involved - yesterday, today and tomorrow.

A massive thank you to all those who took part on behalf of everyone at Retail Trust
