Visualsoft raises thousands for people affected by cancer at annual golf day


eCommerce specialist Visualsoft held one of the companies most successful charity golf days at The Belfry Hotel and Resort, raising over £8,000 for the Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust.

The thousands of pounds raised will go towards supporting people affected by cancer. Based in Spennymoor, Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust provides help, advice and treatment rooms for people who need to escape from or relax even for a few hours from the turmoil that cancer can bring.

Throughout the day there were opportunities to donate to the charity, including games and activities such as Mulligan Balloons, String it Out, Beat the Pro, a raffle full of donated prizes and a live auction.

A number of companies supported the event including leading payments provider, Klarna, who for the third year running were platinum sponsors. As well as Trustpilot, Loqate, Opayo, FACT-Finder and Huboo.

David Duke, Digital Director at Visualsoft said: “We had a fantastic day and raised more money than expected for a great cause that is close to our hearts. We could not have done it without our sponsors and without everyone who attended and took part in the day.”

Mark Solan, Founder of The Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust, commented: “It’s always humbling to see the effort that people put into raising money for the charity. The money raised will go towards helping those affected by cancer. Our dream is to expand our network across the country to help more families in need of support. Companies like Visualsoft and events like these put us one step closer to achieving this goal.”

The Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust was launched to help those touched by cancer. The charity has created a place that supports individuals and families in County Durham and Darlington and helps them to deal with their cancer journey.
