Golf day sees Northampton’s Forterra raise £4K for charity

Leading local building products manufacturer Forterra has raised £4,000 for Prostate Cancer UK through an amateur golf tournament at a Northamptonshire golf course.

More than 60 of the firm’s employees and associates teed off at Collingtree Park Golf Club in teams of four, with all players and teams contributing towards the final amount raised, which was up from the £3,000 raised by the previous year’s tournament.

Stephen Harrison, Chief Executive of Forterra, said, “I would like to congratulate everyone who took part in our recent golf tournament, which was an enjoyable way to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK, a men’s health organisation we are very proud to support.”

James Beeby, Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said: “This is a fantastic amount of money, which we are very grateful to the staff of Forterra for raising, along with anyone else who took part in their golf tournament.

“Prostate cancer exists in every golf club, but tournaments like this go a long way in helping us fund vital research that will ultimately let us hit this killer disease out of bounds.”
