Lovell golf day raises £6,734.68 for John Hartson Foundation

The annual Lovell golf day at Dundonald Links has raised over £6,000 for testicular cancer charity, the John Hartson Foundation.

Hartson, the former Celtic, Arsenal, and Welsh international footballer, who founded the charity, met with the developer at their head office in Motherwell to receive a cheque for £6,734.68.

The legendary striker survived testicular cancer in his thirties and has spent much of his post-playing career as an ambassador; raising money and awareness to fight the illness.

This experience led him to create the charity, which has raised around £100,000 each year and uses John’s fame and success as a way to raise awareness of the condition so that more men, like John, survive.

Now in its fifth year and organised by Lovell assistant buyer, Lee-Ann Reynolds, the golf day raises money through a charity auction, entry fees, and sponsorship.

Prizes for the auction, including a four-ball at the prestigious Gleneagles, premium golf balls, and other golfing equipment, were donated by Lovell supply chain partners.

Attendees included headline sponsors, O’Byrne Tiling and T Clarke as well as other supporters and Lovell staff.

The event would also not have been possible without the support of the additional sponsors, including EMA, Advance Construction, Tough Scotland, and Avoca Wealth Management.

Lovell thanked everyone involved for their hard work and dedication to making the event a success.

The developer, which has developments across Scotland including The Crossings at South Queensferry and Glow Garren near Hamilton, also thanks John, his foundation, and all who contributed to the success of the golf day and looks forward to welcoming everyone back in 2024.

Lovell development director, John McGill, said: “Our golf day is an event that we all look forward to; it allows us to have fun, with a little friendly competition, for a great cause.

“Lovell is incredibly proud of our record of giving back and this includes some incredible charity work.

“The money we raised will really help in the fight against testicular cancer.”

John Hartson said: “On behalf of my Foundation, I’d like to thank everyone at Lovell for their amazing efforts. It was a thoroughly enjoyable golf day.

“It was a great team effort, but a special mention to Lee-Ann Reynolds for her hard work and attention to detail.

“The money raised will help my Foundation keep up our ongoing aims of raising awareness about testicular cancer and also supporting many other charities such as The Beatson and Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.”
