A total success.

The verdict of brothers Wes, Wayne and Luke Crutcher and would-be brother, long-term associate and fellow Director Paul Clarke.

They were speaking after a golf day organised by their Poole-based company, Living Home Tech, raised more than £6,000 for charity,

Ten teams took part in the sell-out event at The Ashley Wood Golf Club near Blandford.

All proceeds were donated to the Piam Brown children’s cancer unit at Southampton Children’s Hospital.

The oncology and haematology centre cares for children from birth to 16 years.

It is one of 22 regional centres across the UK treating children and adolescents with cancer and haematological disorders.

Luke, pictured left, said his brothers – all dads – and Paul had been overwhelmed by the response from friends, family, supporters and clients.

He added: “Being parents gives you a different perspective.

“When you hear about what some families must overcome, it makes you want to do something to help.

“We wanted to make a real difference.

“To raise as much as possible while having fun doing it.

“Our objective is simple.

“Fundraise as much as we can and know that the lives of families and children have been made that bit brighter from it.”

The Piam Brown Unit has a 12-bed inpatient ward and a day care and outpatient area, supporting the whole family of a child who is being treated.

Rachel Funnell, Piam Brown Ward Charity Coordinator for Southampton Hospitals Charity, said: “We are delighted that Living Home Tech is partnering with us.

“We are excited to work with them during their fundraising challenges over the next year.

“Our patients often face the biggest challenges of their lives while being treated on our ward.

“Your kindness and recognition means the world to our staff and patients, just knowing that somebody is thinking about them.

“Thank you.”
