A golf day organised in aid of child exploitation charity Safe and Sound has raised thousands of pounds.

The event, which was organised by Invictus Communications and German Automotive, saw 64 golfers take part – who raised £2,000 for the charity.

Jonny McPhee, managing director of Invictus, has been a long-time supporter of Safe and Sound.

His support includes installing a new telephony system at the charity’s offices to ensure they could keep their helplines open.

He also nominated Safe and Sound to be the chosen charity for the recent East Midlands Business Awards, which raised £13,000 to support its work.

He said: “Safe and Sound do an incredible job protecting and supporting young people and families whose lives are affected by child exploitation.

“Therefore, when we started planning the golf day with Ian Essex and the team at German Automotive, I was adamant that Safe and Sound would be a chosen charity for fundraising on the day.

“Our whole ethos is buy local, sell local and support local and I am delighted that we have once again been able to make a positive difference to this amazing charity.”

Tracy Harrison, chief executive at Safe and Sound, said: “Once again we are very grateful for the generosity shown by Invictus Communications and the businesses and individuals they work with.

“Every penny raised goes into directly supporting young people and families in our local communities through one-to-one and group support, positive activities and outreach work.

“We can only do this with the support of our local business community and I hope they all realise what a positive difference they are making to so many people’s lives.”
