For more than 25 years, Leodis stairlifts have been specialising in giving people access to different parts of their respective buildings. In the last 20 years, our speciality became even finer when we began to focus on giving people more access and mobility within their own home. With humble origins in Leeds, we have expanded all around the region of Yorkshire and the North.
So, when the opportunity to celebrate our Yorkshire pride presents itself, we take it. On the 1st of August, we hosted our 9th Annual Golf Competition in celebration of Yorkshire Day. We host this event on the closest Friday to Yorkshire Day every year, inviting 32 guests to play in 8 teams of 4.
Many of our guests are fellow mobility providers operating in the region, just to increase the competition. Each winning team receives a trophy, as does the winning individual with the best score throughout the tournament. This year’s winners were Castleford Mobility, with the trophy for the individual winner going to James Tordoff from Featherstone Mobility, so congratulations to them!
Held at Otley Golf Course this year, we have been running this event for the last 9 years, the first 7 of which involved no money, being completely funded by us.
In the last two years, we have developed a strong partnership with Overgate Hospice, a Halifax based charity dedicated to offering people a comfortable quality of life. As a result, we now take an entrance fee, as well as conduct a raffle. Together, it helped raise £520 this year, which Leodis are going to double up to £1040.
This is due to be presented to the hospice in a few weeks’ time and will hopefully contribute some way to improving the already amazing service they provide for families in Halifax.
As always, it was a fun day for all involved, and a great opportunity for us to celebrate our Yorkshire Pride. We look forward to next year’s competition which will be our 10th celebration!
Ultimately, the purpose of this is to improve the quality of life for those who need it the most, ensuring that nobody should miss out on being able to enjoy the simple things.
