For the third year in succession Celton Manx is to sponsor Cruse Bereavement Care Isle of Man’s corporate golf day.
The event, which last year raised £7000, will be held at Peel Golf Club on Wednesday April 30th.
Mike Henthorn, the charity’s deputy chairman, said: ‘We are very grateful to Celton Manx for their support. Both we and our corporate guests attending the golf day set great store by having the respected name of Celton Manx associated with the event.
‘We are a small, discreet charity, so to be aligned with Celton Manx lends visibility to our cause and raises our profile considerably. Their sponsorship allows us to put on a high quality, well-run golfing event that attracts participants from many of the island’s leading corporate organisations.
‘Importantly, having Celton Manx behind the event not only generates enormous goodwill but also helps us raise much needed funds at a time when not only private individuals but also businesses are having to re-assess their charitable giving priorities.’
Celton Manx executive director Bill Mummery said: ‘Community investment is a guiding principle of how we conduct our business. Cruse Bereavement Isle of Man has been serving the Isle of Man community for more than 25 years and over that time has worked tirelessly and sensitively to help people of all generations come to terms with loss.
‘This golf day is an effective means of making lasting, productive connections between business and a valued member of the island’s third sector. As sponsor Celton Manx is pleased to be playing its part in strengthening those links.’
