Now that’s a score to be proud of. ..

Golfers teed off to the tune of £9,000 - money which will be used for the redevelopment of Sheffield Children’s Hospital - at an annual golf day.

There were 19 teams at Bunkered, organised by Thornbridge Brewery and Sheffield restaurant group BrewKitchen at Hillsborough Golf Club.

Guests also enjoyed an auction, where top prizes such as luxury meals cooked by the firm’s best chefs went under the hammer - and a raffle with a three-course meal at The Beauchief pub.

Ed Cosens, guitarist with Sheffield band Reverend and the Makers, entered with a team.

And Simon Webster, Thornbridge chief operating officer, went the extra mile by dressing up as the hospital’s mascot Theo the Bear.

He said: “To raise £9,000 in one day goes to show how generous people are in the current climate.

“It was a fantastic day and we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who participated.

“We’re aiming to raise £25,000 this year to fund a bedroom in the new Sheffield Children’s Hospital development for youngsters and their families who have to stay there long-term.

“This money will go a long way to helping achieve our total for this important cause.”

Money raised will boost the £20 million needed for the hospital’s £40m transformation.

Senior fundraiser Rebecca Staden said: “BrewKitchen’s support will make such a difference to our young patients for many years to come, and we are so thankful to all the staff for their hard work.”
