27th August 2018 – Golf Day Success!

Friday was the Trust’s Annual Golf Day and what an amazing event it was! So many wonderful golfers and supporters came along to the beautiful Naunton Downs Golf Course in Cheltenham and took part in the 6th golf event organised by the Trust. It rained, it poured and there was even lightening at some point! But that didn’t stop those brave folk – it was another wonderful day.

Huge thanks to the sponsors for their time and generosity:

Main Event – Western Computers

1st Tee – Mango Partnership

Halfway House and Lash Buggy – Tristan and friends at Chase de Vere (sorting us out with pork scratchings)

Dapper Debonair award – Horace Barton and Sons and Marcus @BarbersOnWheels

Nick and friends at Cambray Property Management – or nearest the pin competitions and longest drive (courtesy of their office swear jar, the potty mouths)

Tee sponsors – CMG Leasehold Management, Kensington Lettings, Carpet Emporium, Webnetism, Bulldog Protection Systems

And big thanks to Terry and all at Naunton Downs for putting on a magnificent spread and looking after us so well.

And, without further ado, here are the results!

Overall Team Winner: The Undydogs
Joint 2nd: CrossFit Navalia & Weapons of Grass Destruction
Overall Individual: Ryan Phillips (also the Bandit)
Longest Drive – Ryan Phillips
Nearest the Pin in 2 shots – Andy Enston
Nearest the Pin in 1 shot – Mike Salmon
Dapper Debonair – Paul Williams
Wooden Spooners – Good Boys this Year/JLL Shankers.

Well played everyone!

Another big thank you to Professor Anita MacDonald OBE and Anne Daly from Birmingham Children’s Hospital for coming along and giving a presentation about the work we do with their metabolic unit. It is always a highlight of our evening and really well received. Thanks for flossing as well, and raising £120! That’s something that will live long in the memory…

Thanks also to Simon, Sophia, Oliver, and helpers for driving the infamous lash buggy around the course. And a mega thank you to everyone who donated some drinking auction and raffle prizes. There are some very generous folks out there and we simply can’t do what we do without you.

Thank you to Nick for the scoring again! We’re relieved to leave it in your capable hands.

Well done to Dan, Grace, Holly, Charlie and Isla for doing the club cleaning again, despite the rain! And thank you for putting on a little presentation about what the charity means to you and reducing us all to tears.

Finally, thank you to Campbell’s Auntie Claire and Uncle Chris for organising another successful day. You are a pair of legends.

And…drum roll…the day raised £6000! An incredible amount. To everyone who came along and made this day so brilliant – thank you 💙
