Teeing Off With Mel Reid For Charity
Mel Reid, the current number one female European golfer, hosted a masterclass to raise money for Armitage Thanks campaign as part of a golf day to raise money for Armitage Thanks!
The event, which took place at Breadsall Priory in Derbyshire, was attended by 60 Ideal Standard team members, customers and suppliers. They were given advice on improving their game by Mel, who finished unbeaten in September’s Solheim Cup in Germany. As well as receiving training, the team members had a ‘Texas Scramble’ round of golf across the course. In total £2,325 was raised for Armitage Thanks!, which was launched this year to celebrate 200 years of our commercial brand, Armitage Shanks. The campaign will raise money for Bowel and Cancer Research as well as for community projects close to our sites in Staffordshire, Hull and Newton Aycliffe. Earlier this year Ideal Standard became one of Mel’s official sponsors and our iconic logo is now featured on her playing apparel.
