A fundraising golf day held by Tulip and companies in its supply chain has raised over £43,000 for charity. Thirty-one teams took part in the event, with proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish charity. 

The event, first announced at Tulip’s inaugural ‘Winning Together’ supplier conference, included the opportunity for participating companies to sponsor Tulip board members to act as caddies on the day.

Tulip’s supply chain director Michael Sondergaard said the amount raised exceeded all expectations. “We had the idea of hosting a golf day where we could bring our suppliers together at an informal event as part of our initiative to develop stronger relationships, and felt it could also be a great opportunity to raise much-needed funds for our chosen charity, Make-A-Wish.

“We were absolutely blown away by the generosity of everyone who took part. The money raised will enable Make-A-Wish to grant around 11 wishes for seriously ill children and their families across the UK, giving the whole family precious time together by creating magical memories, and I would like to thank everyone who took part in making the day such a huge success.”
