Castle Hawk raises thousands for local mental health charity

L-R: Paula Hall, Dave Trow and Andy McGee
Members of Castle Hawk Golf Club in Castleton have raised over £4,900 for Rochdale and District Mind.
On Friday (7 February), Captain Andy McGee handed over a final amount of £4,966.85 to Paula Hall, fundraising co-ordinator at Rochdale and District Mind.
Andy chose Rochdale and District Mind as his charity of the year because he’d had first-hand experience of seeing a loved one experience mental health issues, of which the person received help from the charity. In Andy’s words, he wanted to 'give something back'.
Several members of the club participated in various fundraising events throughout 2019 including cycling from Lands’ End to John O’Groats, a Dawn Till Dusk golf challenge, Mount Snowden ascent challenge, along with monthly donations and collection tins adding to the amount.
Paula said: “It’s been a real privilege working with the members of Castle Hawk this past year, and a real honour that new Captain Dave Trow has chosen us to continue to support us for 2020/2021.
“We look forward to what’s coming up. We’d like to thank each and every member who has participated in fundraising for us in whatever capacity.”
The donation will go towards Rochdale and District Mind’s Get Active 4 Life project which helps people aged 16+ who face multiple disadvantages and challenges which prevent them from engaging in any, or very little, physical activity.
