Funds raised by Anoush Cup exceed £50,000
The annual golf day and dinner that commemorates the life of Anoush Mahmoudzadeh has now raised more than £50,000 for charity.
The event was originally staged in 2007 as an opportunity for the teenager’s friends and family to get together and remember him.
Since then it has become increasingly popular and the tournament, the Anoush Cup, has become an annual event.
More than 90 golfers took part in the latest at Branston Golf and Country Club in Staffordshire and almost double that number attended the fundraising dinner that followed.
The event, the 12th in the series, raised more than £8,000 and the
proceeds have been shared by the Teenage Cancer Trust and UK Youth. Other causes to benefit in the past have included Breast Cancer Care and Cystic Fibrosis.
Commenting on the continuing success of the event, Anoush’s father, Kamran Mahmoudzadeh, said: “We have now held the Anoush Cup in each of the past 12 years and it continues to go from strength to strength.
“As a result we have raised more than £50,000 and I am truly touched by the support of our families and friends.
“We are also indebted to the generous support of our corporate sponsors: Carrot Insurance, Trak Global, RTR Services, Corporate Connections, RS Connect and Cope Electronics.
“I am very proud of my son and that, in commemorating his life, we are helping others by raising money for worthy charities like Teenage Cancer Trust and UK Youth.”
