Taxi drivers teeing off to raise vital hospice funds

Have your say

Staff at a Sheffield taxi firm are putting charity first with a fundraising golf day for a worthy cause.

Mercury Taxis, of Northfield Road, Crookes, will hold the event at Dore & Totley Golf Club.

The fundraisers will be teeing off next Thursday, August 22, in aid of St Luke’s Hospice in Whirlow, Sheffield.

And staff at the firm hope it will be their biggest yet – after more than 150 golfers swung into action to help raise more than £3,300 last year.

Peter Holmes, Mercury business development manager, said staff and customers of the firm were looking forward to the day.

He added: “We are delighted that many local businesses and account customers of ours, plus teams of our drivers, will be competing.”
