Leading pitched roof tile manufacturer, Russell Roof Tiles’ (RRT) Ryder Cup style charity golf tournament was back for 2021, raising over £5,000 for Shropshire, Staffordshire & Cheshire Blood Bikes.
The tournament was held at Horsley Lodge Golf Club, Derbyshire, with around 80 players taking part from various organisations, customers, suppliers and partners.
Entrants were split into teams of RRT England and RRT Rest of The World to battle it out for the coveted RRT Ryder Cup Challenge Trophy. In the end it was the RRT Rest of the World team that claimed the trophy, winning with 11 points to 9.
Individual winners included Andy Startin and Lee Parker from Derby-based, Wheeldon Homes, who were the best scoring pair and Jake Morley of roofing contractor, Avonside Group took home the prize for ball nearest the pin. Nearest the pin in two shots was won by Morris Homes’ Mark Chambers.
Russell Roof Tiles, who has three sites, two in Burton on Trent and another in Lochmaben, Scotland, have been running the event since 2016. With the absence of last year’s tournament due the pandemic, they have so far in total raised £27,500 through the golf day.
Organiser of the tournament, Ross Hayward, Area Sales Manager at Russell Roof Tiles said: “We were delighted to see the annual charity golf tournament return this year. It enables local partners and customers to come together to have some fun around the course, whilst importantly raising money for a local cause.”
“I would like to thank everyone that came along and helped to raise such an incredible amount.”
Russell Roof Tiles has always been dedicated to supporting and raising funds for local charities and community, close to its sites, having donated £113,487 in total to various causes and organisations since 2016.
