On Friday 17th September, we held our second #share77k golf day at East Brighton Golf Club, which we co-hosted with the amazing County Business Clubs, and powered by TPG Sports Events.
We were greeted by beautiful sunshine for the entire day and spectacular sea views, and it was a fantastic day raising over £6,000 towards our #share77k charity campaign.
We had 18 teams battling it out for the coveted S7 Ted’s Trophy, with some superb scores being recorded.
Congratulations to SIA Group for winning the event, with their team recording a whopping 98 points, and to Bud Johnson of Rivervale picking up the best individual score, with an impressive 43 points.
Sadly, no one got a hole in one to take home the 5k cash prize or a golfing holiday, but I am sure that will happen at one of our events one day!
Massive thank you to Rockinghorse and Janella and Amanda specifically, for coming along and helping on the day and saying a few words, and to Mark from Clock Tower Sanctuary for also saying a few words on the day too – its ever so important to use our events to give our charities a platform to tell people about their challenges and how everyone can help.
On the day we also printed out brochures which had information about every single charity. Thanks to our main sponsor Southern Sheeting for their fantastic support, and to all the 18 hole sponsors. We were spoilt with some amazing raffle prizes – so a big thanks to funky hampers, HR Smart, Arena Racing, WPZ, TPG Sports, Wakehurst Place and Fitzrovia Hotel, London – for your kind donations.
To our other volunteers on the day, to our Lifeguard Jay from Oakwood Lofts, who went round the course fining people for messing up his sand with bunker fines, to Hazel for manning hole 2 and also dishing out bunker fines, and to Jo from Whitespace for coming along on the day.
We are very lucky to have great #share77k partners, with special mentions to Me&You, Eagle & Beagle, MCR Media for their superb efforts in supporting this particular event.
Another cracking golf day, and next up for the #share77k campaign is a pool tournament hosted by County Business Clubs & Metro Bank, supporting our cause – on November 11th, and then we have a final charity raffle before we reveal our grand total in November – fingers crossed we can hit our target!
