£100k charity event kickstarts 2024 appeal

3 Bunkers Challenge 2024

The 4th annual Three Bunkers Challenge event has kick started fundraising as the event aims to reach its £100,000 target. So far, £40,000 has been raised.

Established in 2020 by Elliot & Bev Cook from Simple Marketing Consultancy which is based in Radcliffe on Trent, the ‘Three Bunkers Challenge’ is styled like the infamous three peaks mountain climbs, but involves 24 golfers playing 27 holes within 10 hours. Whilst only a moderately physical feat, the logistical challenge is high as all players start at 7am at Morley Hayes Golf Club, players then travel to Charnwood Forest Golf Club and conclude at The Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club, reaching three corners of the East Midlands Counties of Nottingham, Derby & Leicestershire, covering just over 70 miles.

This year, the event takes place on Friday 24 May 2024 and so far involves teams from Actons Solicitors, Fiscal Engineers, MAF Finance Group, Shakespeare Martineau Solicitors,  RBC Brewin Dolphin and Simple Marketing Consultancy. Each person commits to raising at least £250 for their team using a dedicated fundraising link and mobile phone App.

All money raised will be donated to the charity Big C Little C which was founded in 2019 by business entrepreneurs, Andrew Springhall from Breedon Electrical Fire & Security and Colin Shaw, former Chairman of PKF Cooper Parry, who joined forces to create a charity that would encourage East Midlands businesses to organise events to raise money for Cancer Research, the NSPCC and other children related charities.

Commenting Elliot Cook said, “A recent study by CRUK says that the rate of improvement in the number of people who survive cancer has slowed significantly stating that the rate of progress was five times faster in the 2000s than in the 2010 and that lack of sufficient funding for research is largely to blame.”

He added, “Similarly, a child contacts the NSPCC Childline Help Services every 45 seconds and reported instances of abuse are also increasing, so events like this are crucial to helping these charities maintain funding to support research and care.”

The organisers also welcome support via online donations or gifting prizes which can be auctioned during the prize presentation. So far fourballs from Ruddington Grange, Oulton Hall, Nuneaton Golf Club & The Nottinghamshire have been gifted.
