Luxury UK golf shoe manufacturer Royal Albartross will donate 10% of all profits until the end of September to disaster relief in Florida, Texas, and the Caribbean following Hurricanes Irma and Harvey.


The money will be given to Team Rubicon, a specialist organisation that unites the skills and experiences of highly trained military veterans with first responders, to deploy fast emergency response across the word.

"It's fair to say, regardless of the distance between us, we have all been horrified by the events on the other side of the Atlantic,” Royal Albartross founder Alex Bartholomew. “And, like many of us, I felt I wanted to help, albeit in a small way. So the company will donate 10 per cent of its profits between now and the end of September to Team Rubicon.

"Naturally, our thoughts are with everyone trying to rebuild and re-settle themselves and their families at this difficult time. Every little helps and I would hope other companies and corporations would consider doing something similar to assist people who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in conditions we can hardly imagine.

"We wish them well and hope the efforts of agencies like Team Rubicon can at least help in the short term."
