Kent-based accountancy practice Perrys has raised £5,500 for the Gravesend charity Family Matters after successfully hosting its tenth annual fundraising golf day. 

The event, which was hosted at Dale Hill Hotel and Golf Club in Ticehurst, saw 19 teams club together to take on The Old Course.

The day included a three-course meal, a silent auction and a raffle, which helped to boost funds. The winning team with 106 points – just three points ahead of the second-place team – was announced as Team Mercer, which was made up of Warren Lee, Jason Bedford, Paul Shields and Mark Henderson. 

Family Matters provides free therapy and counselling services to survivors of sexual abuse and rape. Steve Hale, Partner at Perrys Chartered Accountants, said: “Our heartfelt thank you to everyone who joined us, supported us and donated to such a worthy cause.

We had a great day and it was wonderful to see so many familiar faces as well as new players. Family Matters is vital to so many people in our community and we are delighted to be able to help them with their important work.” Words: 194 Notes to EditorImage caption:
