Moorhouse’s golf day success for 150th year celebrations
Award winning Moorhouse’s Brewery enjoyed its 13th annual golf competition at Mytton Fold Golf Club in its 150th anniversary year.
Golfers from the brewery staff, customers and suppliers took part in the charity event, with a raffle and auction which raised £2,015.00 for Rossendale and Pendle Mountain Rescue. Auction prizes were a trip up Pendle Hill in the R&PMR vehicle and a signed England Cricket shirt worn by Jimmy Anderson in the match where he took his 400th test wicket against New Zealand in May.
Moorhouse’s chairman Bill Parkinson made presentations to the winners at a post match meal in the brewery’s hospitality suite (see photographs). Ark Caterers of Burnley won the day with 90 points while the top spot as individual player of the contest was Joe Benaduce of Ark with 39 points. Runners up were M.Ramsden (2nd) with 37 points and P.Smith (3rd) with 33 points.
David Grant, managing director, said: “Despite the very bad weather this year the teams battled on in true British spirit to make it another successful competition and help us celebrate our 150th year as one of Burnley’s longest established businesses. We were very pleased to support one of our excellent free trade club customers in our Pendle heartland and had a great day. And we were delighted to raise funds for the excellent work of the Mountain Rescue.”
In 2011 Moorhouse’s opened a new £4.2m brewing complex in Accrington Road, Burnley, in an ambitious move to expand sales of its famous ‘Pendle Witch’ cask ales across the North West and via national pub companies throughout the UK.
