PGA Pro-Am Golf Tournament Raises Over £4000 for Sheffield Children’s Charity

This year, along with the IMH recruitment agency, S2S Group held a Pro-am event at Lees Hall Golf club on September 30th, which was a great success in so much that it raised £4470 for the charity Paces.
Saying it was a ‘success’, everything was planned with the help of the PGA (Professional Golfers Association) and the course was in great condition as the 20 teams did battle, with a 1st Pro prize of £1000.00 and a glittering array of prizes for the three amateurs accompanying each pro.
However, what was not a success was the weather, as shortly after the first few teams had teed off at the Pro-AM, the heavens opened and torrential rain battered the players continuously, until eventually the event had to be canceled, and shortened to a 9-hole event. This resulted in a 5-way tie for first place, with the Pro’s sharing the prize money equally.
Despite the weather, all the effort and planning resulted in a very healthy sum of money for the Paces charity which is a leading specialist centre for children with Cerebral Palsy and other motor disorders, with an ever-growing reputation for excellence in Conductive Education.
Conductive Education as a holistic approach is unique and is highly effective in meeting the learning needs of our children and young people.
Paces was established in the 1990s by a small group of parents who recognised the benefits of Conductive Education for their children with cerebral palsy.
A growing number of families have since taken advantage of Paces’ unique way of working, enabling their children to reap great benefits from our integrated approach which focuses on personal goals and aspirations.
Planning next year’s event starts in earnest in the New Year, with event organisers keeping their fingers crossed for better weather and a little less rain.
