The HSBC Liverpool Golf Society has chosen MDS as their charity of the year in 2011.  Golf matches are played every year in memory of Ian Denton, organised by family member Geoff Denton.  Thank you for all your team efforts – and thank you to HSBC.

Geoff sent us a few words – we admire the team’s dedication (!!):  ”Our charities this year were the MDS Foundation, in memory of our late member Ian Denton, and Zoe’s Place, a baby hospice in Liverpool, with all proceeds being split equally between each charity.

I decided to hold our captain’s charity golf day in July, expecting it to be warm, dry and sunny. Unfortunately we got the opposite. 24 of us played and the stiff breeze on the first tee very quickly turned into a gale with squally showers.

By the sixth hole using umbrellas’ became a waste of time as the gales were now blowing very heavy and continual rain in sideways.

By the ninth hole it went very dark with the rain incessant.

Waterproofs became waterlogged and all 24 players came off the course completely soaked with water dripping from everywhere, water squelching out of golf shoes, and golf bags with water sloshing round in them. But everyone completed their round knowing it was for two very worthwhile causes.

In November we held a charity races night and charity auction in Liverpool.

A fun night was had by all, with lots of very generous donations for the auction and lots of digging deep on the night.

In total the members raised £5,295 and HSBC Bank kindly added £5,000, so each charity has received £5,147
