SMH Group, the Yorkshire and Derbyshire based firm of chartered accountants and business advisers, have raised £2,000 for their charity of the year, the South Yorkshire branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA), at their annual charity golf day, which took place at Chesterfield Golf Club on 2nd September 2022.

The Texas Scramble format tournament included 19 teams of four competing for a range of prizes on the day, with the team from Principal Mortgages being crowned the overall winner.

Organised by James Furniss, Head of SMH Commercial Finance, the day gave close contacts of the firm a great opportunity to take up some in-person networking, as well as being the catalyst to raise funds for a very deserving local charity.

James Furniss, Head of SMH Commercial Finance comments: “After the success of our first event last year, we’re delighted to roll out our charity golf day again in 2022. The event provides a great opportunity for us to connect with clients and contacts of the firm in a relaxed and informal setting.

“We have a lot of keen (and competitive) golfers in our network, which made for a very entertaining day with on course competitions, such as closest to the pin, and longest drive, taking place.

“SMH Group have been supporting our local branch of MNDA for a number of years, so it’s a pleasure to be able to hold this event again and raise a great sum of money for the charity. We’d like to extend our thanks to the MNDA charity team who helped out on the day with the raffle, as well as some fantastic local organisations who donated raffle prizes, who we have publicly thanked via our social media channels.

“A big well done to the team from Principle Mortgages who finished in first place, along with Joe Daniels from the SMH Commercial Finance team who won the longest drive, and Carl Finlayson of Praetura Finance and Phil Nunney of Begbies Traynor who won the closest to the pin competitions. We’re looking forward to making next year’s event bigger and better already.”

Christine Naylor, Secretary of MNDA South Yorkshire Branch adds: “The raffle, together with the other fundraising taking place across the day raised a total of £2000 thanks to the generosity of SMH Group and the golfers.

“Thank you for choosing to support the MNDA charity and in doing so, enabling us to continue to help people living with MND in the South Yorkshire area.”
