A charity golf day arranged by Nottinghamshire developer Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Midlands has raised over £13,500 for its Charity of the Year, Muted.
Over 90 golfers, including Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ employees and sub-contractors, took part in the tournament which was held at Ramsdale Park Golf Centre in Calverton.
Representatives from the men’s mental health charity were welcomed to the event, which has become one of the leading housebuilder’s largest annual fundraisers.
The £6,753 raised on the day has been matched by parent company, Barratt Developments, bringing the total money raised on the day for Muted to just over £13,500.
Muted is a Nottinghamshire based charity, made up of a number of people that have at some stage struggled with their mental health. The charity helps others that may be experiencing similar struggles, and everything from the first contact is totally confidential.
It regularly holds events to generate awareness of the importance of mental health, and attends places of work to deliver presentations and toolbox talks totally free of charge.
These events and talks have proven to be very successful and have enabled the charity to reach out to people that may need support, whilst normalising the topic of mental health.
