In aid of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity

This June, IQ held a Charity Golf Day at Harewood Downs Golf Club to raise money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. The money raised for the Charity raises money to solely support The Royal Marsden (a world-leading cancer centre).

The Royal Marsden pioneers the very latest in cancer treatments and technologies through money raised for the charity. This includes the use of precise intensity modulated radiotherapy for head and neck cancer trials, clinical research trials and the use of the da Vinci S robot that is now in use over 20 NHS Trusts across the UK. Funds raised for the charity go towards ensuring the nurses, doctors and research teams can provide the very best care and development for life-saving treatments which are used here in the UK and around the world.

The weather stayed on our side and the teams enjoyed a full morning on the golf course with refreshments served by the IQ marketing team on the golf buggy. Once all teams had completed the course, we all sat down to enjoy lunch and to announce the winners of the golf and raffle prizes.

During the day, the IQ helpers were selling raffle tickets to win golf themed prizes after the lunch. There were an abundance of prizes to be won, all kindly donated to us for the event by Barclays Bank, Hunts Transport, Stonewood Builders, ALUK, Contemporary Glazing, Glynn and Thames Graphics.
