East of England based Streets Chartered Accountants, a top 40 accountancy practice, hosted their fifth annual Charity Golf Day last month raising £5,500 for the Air Ambulance.

 

The total amount fundraised will be divided between the firm’s three regional charities; East Anglian Air Ambulance, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The event received fantastic support with 33 teams taking part and more than 30 local businesses sponsoring the day. There were Stableford individual and team prizes as well as competitions such as Longest Drive, Nearest the Pin and Hole in One.

Barbara McGee, Fundraising Manager at the East Anglian Air Ambulance said: “The East Anglian Air are delighted that Streets Chartered Accountants has chosen to support us once again this year. To be associated with a local company is so important to us and gives us the opportunity to raise the awareness of the fantastic work our crews do on a daily basis.

“The support of companies like Streets and the general public means that we can keep the helicopters in the skies above East Anglia. Together we save lives.”

Commenting on the day, Streets Partner Jon Day said: "The support received this year has been truly fantastic and has helped us raise £5,500 for our three local Air Ambulance services.

“We have more than doubled the fundraising total since our inaugural golf day and we’re still only in our fifth year! We’re delighted to be able to support our local Air Ambulance Services, who are the true winners of the day.

“A very big thank you goes to all those people who sponsored, donated, gave their time and helped in some way, without whom the day would not be possible.”

Streets’ sixth Charity Golf Day will take place on Friday 7 July 2017 at Lincoln Golf Club, Torksey.
