A charity golf day organised by Mulbury and Prestwich Golf Club has raised over £1,000 pounds for a Bury-based charity that supports people with brain and spinal injuries.
The money will be used by BASIC (Brain and Spinal Injury Centre) to support its pioneering rehabilitation programmes for those who have suffered life-changing brain and spinal injuries.
The golf day was also a celebration of the land deal between Mulbury and Prestwich Golf Club and was supported by a number of Mulbury’s contractors and suppliers.
The deal released a parcel of land off Kersal Road for a new development of 17 bespoke homes by Mulbury enabling the funds from the sale to be reinvested by the club in course improvements and new facilities.
Sophia Fleming, land consultant for Mulbury, said: “We’ve built a strong partnership with Prestwich Golf Club and it’s great that we’re able to put on this event in aid of an inspirational charity such as BASIC.
“Works have now started on the development in partnership with Cube and when complete they will provide a fantastic new development of family homes for Prestwich.”
Tom Walker, of the Prestwich Golf Club, added: “It was great to welcome Mulbury and its partners, along with some of our familiar faces, down to the golf club for this event in support of a wonderful charity.
“We’re proud to be working with Mulbury on the project which has safeguarded the future of the club. The fresh investment will benefit not just our members, but also the wider community.”
The new homes have been designed by Calderpeel Architects. Architect Paul Thomas and planning consultant Kath Ludlam from Ludlam Associates were also involved in obtaining planning permission for the scheme. Land4Homes acted as agent on behalf of Prestwich Golf Club.
Work is underway on the development with the first homes due for release in late summer 2019.
