KLH Architects is fundraising for the Nick Fayers Amend Fund, set up after the former managing director of Barnes Construction died from a condition called Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia 1 (MEN1) in December last year.

This is the fifth year the firm has run the golf day in support of a good cause.

Director of KLH Architects, Graham Lambert, said: “Our charity golf day has been a huge success over the years with multiple teams taking part to help raise money for worthwhile causes.

“This year we wanted to celebrate the life and good work of Nick, who many of us at KLH knew personally, as well as helping to increase the awareness of his condition to the wider community.”

The event will be held on April 23rd at Brett Vale Golf Club. Teams of four from the local construction industry have entered the 18-hole challenge with the opportunity to compete in the coveted KLH ball competition. There will be a prize giving ceremony and raffle draw for participants with prizes donated by companies and individuals.

Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia 1 or MEN1 is a rare inherited condition that causes tumours to develop in endocrine glands. The Nick Fayers Amend Fund intends to raise funds to support research into the condition and advice to sufferers.
