We are delighted to announce that the 2023 Children’s Cancer Unit Charity Golf Classic, organised by McQuillan Companies alongside friends and colleagues from Northern Ireland’s business community, has raised a staggering £130,000.
The event, which took place at Rockmount Golf Club, was attended by over 250 golfers and was the fifth event of its kind for the Charity. The event takes place bi-annually and since it began in 2014, has raised more than half a million pounds.
Speaking at the fundraising presentation, Johnny McQuillan of McQuillan Companies said:
“This year’s event was a drive to break the £100,000 mark for the second time, and we’re delighted to have smashed this target. All the money we raise goes directly to the Children’s Cancer Unit and is used exclusively to support the medical team and families affected by childhood cancer in Northern Ireland. This target and the final figure of over £130,000 could not have been achieved without the support and generosity of suppliers and subcontractors to McQuillan Companies, as well as many others, and we thank them for that.”
Jane Hoare, Chief Executive Officer of The Children’s Cancer Unit Charity added:
“The Golf Classic has quickly become a key feature in our fundraising calendar, and the money raised will make a huge difference to children facing a cancer diagnosis and their families, as well as the medical teams who care for them in the Unit. We cannot thank the Committee and all those who took part enough for their ongoing support.”
The CCUC Golf Committee is made up of: Chair, Felix Mooney, Dunadry Development Company, Johnny McQuillan from McQuillan Companies, John Morgan from Panther Purchasing, Steven Kher, Owner of Flame Restaurant, Malcolm Macfarlane from Serviced Apartments in Belfast, and David Hassard.
