Middlesbrough-based engineering firm Intelect has helped raise £1,500 in support of two local charities.

Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation and Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind both received a share of the donation raised with the help of Intelect’s customers and suppliers through an annual golf day.

Hosted by Intelect, a provider of engineering expertise to market leading companies across the UK, the golf day, held earlier this month at Rockliffe Hall, saw 18 teams compete to help to raise money for both charities to support their continued work within the local community.

Intelect’s managing director Fran Cormicansaid: “The day’s success was down to the generosity of both those who attended, and the company’s supportive suppliers, who kindly donated prizes and sponsored the event.

“Both charities offer tremendous support to people within the local community, and hopefully our donation can lead to a positive impact on our society, and will provide assistance to the people who need it.”

Middlesbrough & Stockton Mind’s communications officer Bethany Dean said: “The donation will go a long way to helping provide continued support to people in the area who are suffering with mental health issues.

“With the event being so close to World Mental Health Day, it’s important to raise awareness of our charity and the work that we do.”

Middlesbrough & Teesside Philanthropic Foundation, set up by Teessiders for Teessiders, operates with the aim of making Teesside a better place to live, work and do business.

Founder Andy Preston said: “It’s tremendous to see a local company supporting local charities.

“The donation will be a huge help to aiding other important charities within the community, such as Teesside Hospice and Butterwick Hospice.”

Both Teesside Hospice and Butterwick Hospice provide child bereavement counselling within the area to young children who have suffered the loss of a parent or a sibling – something the directors of Intelect wanted to specifically support, in addition to Middlesbrough and Stockton Mind.

The cheques were presented to representatives from the two charities at Intelect’s head office in Riverside Park by their Junior Marketing Manager, Lily Brothwood, who organised and ran the Golf Day.
