Vistry golf day raises money for suicide prevention charity

Vistry Group raised £7,690 for suicide prevention charity Papyrus at a charity golf tournament on Wednesday (14 September).

A total of 8 members of staff from the housebuilder’s Mercia region, which is based in Stafford, took up their clubs for the 18-hole event held at The Shropshire Golf Course in Telford.

The event was held in the same week at World Suicide Prevention Day on Saturday (10 September).

Papyrus is Vistry’s national chosen charity this year. The organisation is dedicated to the prevention of suicide, which is the biggest killer of people aged 35 and under in the UK. It provides confidential support and advice to young people struggling with thoughts of suicide and anyone worried about a young person, through its helpline HOPELINEUK.

Freya Halsall, marketing manager for Vistry Mercia said: “Papyrus is such a deserving charity which is working tirelessly to support young people. We are hoping to do many more fundraising activities before the end of the year to further help raise money for them.

“It was great to see colleagues taking part in the golf tournament. Team-building events such as these help to boost team morale as well as raise money for our chosen charity which is so important to us.”

After the final hole, the Vistry Mercia team celebrated with a meal, charity auction and awards ceremony.
