Organiser Audrey Parry, the lady’s captain who selected Halas Homes as her chosen charity for the year, said: ‘The event went very well and we’re delighted to have made £2,000 for charity. We have a long-standing relationship with Halas Homes at the club and they are a dedicated local charity. We would like to thank Acorn Mitsubishi for their support.’

Halas Homes provides care for care for people with learning disabilities in Halesowen and the surrounding area.

Alison Sayer, Chief Executive Officer of Halas Homes, said: ‘We are absolutely amazed and so grateful for the wonderful and generous support from Halesowen Golf Club members and Acorn Mitsubishi. Donations such as these truly make a difference and as we are currently fundraising for a new minibus this is fantastic!’

Acorn Mitsubishi, in Hagley Road West, has an on-going partnership with the club and has given PGA Golf Professional Paul Johnson an Outlander PHEV for the year.

Sales Manager Ryan Hensman said: ‘We were delighted to sponsor the club’s charity weekend and help raise this fantastic amount for Halas Homes. Having spoken to Audrey and I know it is a very worthy cause and this money will make a real difference.’
