Cedar Court Hotels Raises £4,817.50 for Maggie’s Charity: A Year of Team Spirit and Generosity

At Cedar Court Hotels, we believe in the power of community and the importance of giving back. This year, we are thrilled to announce that our collective efforts have raised an incredible £4,817.50 for Maggie’s charity! Our team’s dedication and the generosity of our supporters have made this achievement possible through a series of exciting and challenging events.


Abseiling at Ilkley Moor

Our journey began with a thrilling abseil down the Cow and Calf Rocks at Ilkley Moor. Stepping over the edge took courage, but our team members embraced the challenge with enthusiasm. The adrenaline rush was palpable, and the sense of accomplishment upon reaching the ground was unparalleled. Each participant demonstrated incredible bravery and a strong commitment to supporting Maggie’s, inspiring many others to donate generously.


Red Kites 72-Holes in 1 Day Golf Challenge

Next, we swapped harnesses for golf clubs and joined the Red Kites group of golfers at Sand Moor Golf Club for the 72-Holes in 1 Day Golf Challenge. This event held special significance as the Red Kites group has been profoundly affected by cancer, with several members and their loved ones battling the disease. Ian Rowlands, Joe Hester, Simon Foster, and Shaun Joyce undertook this marathon golfing challenge, covering approximately 26 miles over four rounds of golf.

Starting at 5:00 am and finishing around 8:00 pm, their dedication and stamina were truly inspiring. Funds raised from this event were split equally between Maggie’s and Candlelighters, another fantastic charity supporting children with cancer. The sense of camaraderie and purpose was evident throughout the day, proving that together, we can make a significant impact.


Conquering the Total Warrior Challenge

On June 23rd, to cap off our fundraising efforts, our team took on the Total Warrior challenge—a grueling obstacle course designed to test physical and mental endurance. From muddy trails to towering walls, our participants tackled each obstacle with determination and a relentless spirit. It was a true test of teamwork and perseverance, reflecting the strength and dedication of everyone involved. The sense of achievement at the finish line was matched only by the satisfaction of knowing that our efforts were contributing to a cause close to our hearts.


Heartfelt Thanks to Our Supporters

We are immensely grateful to everyone who supported our fundraising initiatives. Whether you took part in the events, donated, or cheered us on, your contributions have made a real difference. Maggie’s charity provides invaluable support to individuals and families affected by cancer, and we are proud to support their mission.


Looking Ahead: Sky Dive Challenge

As we celebrate this year’s success, we are already looking forward to future opportunities to give back and make a positive impact. Next up, we have a Sky Dive challenge on the horizon, with several height-fearing team members bravely taking the plunge for charity. At Cedar Court Hotels, our commitment to community and charity remains unwavering. Together, we can continue to achieve great things and support those in need.

Thank you once again for your generosity and support. Here’s to more successful fundraising adventures in the years to come!
