Keen golfers from the Northamptonshire business community gathered at Northampton Golf Club recently to take part in the inaugural Golf Day held by Cynthia Spencer Hospice. In total 80 business people representing 20 businesses from around the county took part and it is hoped that fundraising for the Hospice will reach £8,000.
Jon Thorpe, managing director of ACS Office Solutions who took part in the 18-hole golf competition said, “it was probably one of the best golf days of the year. We were blessed with the weather, blessed by the warm hospitality but not blessed by our golf! Congratulations to all the Cynthia Spencer Hospice Charity team for a great day”.
“Congratulations for organising such a great day. The day ran smoothly and hopefully raised loads” commented David Smith, finance director of Flexr UK.
The team that won overall was DR Roofing with second place going to Carshop and Vend 43 came in in third place.
Chelsea Galpin, corporate partnerships fundraiser at Cynthia Spencer Hospice said, “Our very first Golf Day has been a huge success and we’re really grateful to all the businesses who entered teams. Huge thanks to our sponsors Franklins Solicitors LLP, Guy Salmon Jaguar Northampton and Warner Edwards Distillery too. Our thanks also go to Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa, Silverstone, ACS Office Solutions, Andrew Gordon & Co, Connells Estate Agents and the Hopping Hare who all helped us put on a fantastic raffle and silent auction by donating prizes, and to Clarity, Law Firms Services and Neves Solicitors for providing the prizes for our ‘nearest the pin’ contests.”
“We’ll be holding another Golf Day next year and, judging by the huge popularity and success of this first event, demand will be high so I’d encourage any businesses who would like to express an interest in entering a team to call me on 01604 973348 or drop me an email on email@example.com”.
