MORE than 70 golfers teed off for charity at an event near Darlington.

Human resources firm, We Do HR, based in the town, hosted the event at Rockliffe Hall, in Hurworth - raising £4,000 for the Daisy Chain Project.

The day included a two-course meal and golfing competitions, with prizes for the nearest pin and longest drive.

Dyer Engineering’s group – made up of Richard Bradley, Simon Dickinson, Lester Wilson and David Steven - won first team on the day.

Managing director of We do HR, Alasdair Ross said: “It’s so rewarding to see everyone who turned out having a great day and know it’s for an excellent cause.

“I’m delighted we have managed to raise so much and that we have been able to increase both the event in itself, and the donation by raising £1,000 more than last year.”

Justine Johnson, corporate partnership manager at the Daisy Chain Project added: “We are delighted to be supported by We do HR and its golf day.

“We rely completely on the generosity of the people and businesses of the Tees Valley in supporting those with autism and their families.”
