Last year Macmillan Cancer Support launched a fund raising event, the Longest Day Golf Challenge, in which almost 2,000 teams across the country played 72 holes in one day. It was a huge success, raising more than £1million for people affected by cancer.
So we’re very proud to announce that four RDT staff took part in this year’s event, between them raising a whopping total of £2850. One team was made up of RDT developer Ciaran Rowe and three of his friends, and the other team had Zak Attaway from IT support, developer Jamie Hollyholmes and account manager Daniel Derham.
Golf is usually played for fun but this event has the word ‘Challenge’ in the title for a reason. The teams had to play 72 holes, which mean they had to hit about 300 shots, and in the course of the day they had to walk more than 20 miles while carrying their golf bags on their backs.
Zak, Jamie and Daniel played their round at Wrotham Heath Golf Club on June 29, and Ciaran’s team played at Pedham Place Golf Centre on June 22. Well done to all of them, and thank you to everyone who donated.
