Glyn Hopkin raises more than £15,000 at successful charity golf day

Time 5 years ago

GLYN HOPKIN, one of the largest car dealer groups in the UK, teamed up with the MCA Trust to raise more than £15,000 at a recent charity golf day.

The MCA Trust, based in Rainham, is staffed entirely by volunteers, and raises money to make a difference to the lives of children suffering from cancer. Every penny raised by the charity goes towards new equipment, experience days, or support for the families affected.

The charity golf day sponsored by Glyn Hopkin took place at Langdon Hills Golf and Country Club near Basildon. Golfers were treated to a full English breakfast at the club before settling into 18 holes and soaking up the course’s views across the Essex countryside. A new Nissan Juke from Glyn Hopkin was also on display, ready to be scooped up by any golfer shooting a hole-in-one.

Back at the clubhouse, guests enjoyed a three-course dinner while being regaled by former Southend United and Peterborough United manager, Barry Fry. Comedian Mark Brewer was also on hand to fill the rest of the evening with laughter.

Thanks to ticket sales and generous donations on the day, including a personal gift of £3,300 from Glyn Hopkin himself, the charity golf day raised more than £15,000 for the MCA Trust.

Fraser Cohen, managing director at Glyn Hopkin, commented: ‘Our support for the vital work of the MCA Trust has already made a real difference to the lives of children suffering from cancer.

‘Glyn Hopkin is proud to have teamed up with the trust again this year to raise more money for such an important cause.’
