KLH host charity golf day to raise money for Nick Fayers Amend Fund

 

KLH hosted a charity golf day to raise money in memory of a local businessman.

KLH have been involved in fundraising for the Nick Fayers Amend Fund, set up after the former managing director of Barnes Construction died from a condition called Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia 1 (MEN1) in December 2017.

This is the fifth year the firm has run the golf day and they always choose a local charity to support.

Graham Lambert, director of KLH Architects, said: “Our charity golf day has been a huge success over the years with multiple teams taking part to help raise money for worthwhile causes. It’s a fantastic day and we have enormous support from the local community with regular teams coming back again and again.

“This year we wanted to celebrate the life and good work of Nick, who many of us at KLH knew personally, as well as helping to increase the awareness of his condition to the wider community.”

The event was held on 23rd April at Brett Vale Golf Club. Teams of four from the local construction industry entered the 18-hole challenge with the opportunity to compete in the coveted KLH ball competition. A prize giving ceremony and raffle draw for participants with prizes donated by local companies and individuals was held.

Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia 1 or MEN1 is a rare inherited condition that causes tumours to develop in endocrine glands. The Nick Fayers Amend Fund intends to raise much needed funds to support research into the condition and advice to sufferers.
