Ellis & Co hosted a raffle at the end of the tournament which raised £130.
Proceeds will go towards MNINC’s ongoing campaign to make its MNINC publication available to everyone affected by cancer.
The leaflet, designed to encourage young people not to lose their sense of self to the disease, was written and inspired by Megan Fletcher who was 20 when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma while studying human biosciences at Plymouth University.
“I am delighted and very grateful to Robert and the Ellis & Co team for once again choosing to nominate My Name Is NOT Cancer for charitable support,” said Megan’s mum Fiona Fletcher, who has continued to spread her daughter’s message as the CEO of MNINC.
The golf day was followed by a dinner and a short presentation by Robert Ellis, director at Ellis & Co.
“Thank you to everyone who came and supported this event – helping us to raise funds for a very worthy cause,” said Robert.
“Not only does this golf day enable people to escape the office for a few hours but offers a fantastic platform for businesses to network with each other and gain new contacts.”
