Apollo Sponsors Second City Golf
Published: 12 July 2016
Apollo is a proud sponsor of Second City Golf, a Birmingham based organisation that supports various charities, including Prostate Cancer UK.
Our founder, Robert Saunders sadly lost his battle with prostate cancer in 2014. Fondly known as Bob by those at Apollo, Robert forged many close relationships with his staff and employees at the company, and continues to be a respected figurehead.
Jonathan Saunders, Robert Saunders’ son and current Apollo Chairman, states: “As a very keen golfer, my father had played in this tournament many times over the recent years. As this is Second City’s 50th celebratory year, I thought it is appropriate to sponsor part of the event, especially as Prostate Cancer UK is one of their chosen charities; a charity that offered us a huge amount of help and support during his final days. I would also like to wish all the players and organisers a fun and successful tournament”.
Second City’s 2016 tournament takes place on Wednesday 13th July 2016 at Little Aston Golf Club.
