Wholecrop Marketing has “chipped in” £750 to help save lives across Yorkshire and Humber.
Our 3rd annual golf day and dinner was held on Wednesday, July 29th at the KP Club near Pocklington.
The money has been split between the Daisy Appeal, an East Yorkshire charity which funds life-saving research into the earlier diagnosis of cancer, heart disease and dementia, and Harrogate Special Care Baby Unit.
We chose the charity following the tragic loss of a sales representative from one of our supply companies who died suddenly of a heart attack. Dave McKay worked at Agrico in Scotland, which supplies us with potato seed.
Mark Tomlinson, our MD said:
Everyone was very shocked by Dave’s sudden and tragic death. Because it was due to heart problems we decided this year we wanted to raise money for a charity that carried out work in this area, and because we are committed to supporting local charities the Daisy Appeal seemed the perfect fit. The charity is doing great work which will ensure people with heart disease are diagnosed earlier, and that will give them the best possible chance of survival.”
