An Enjoyable Day at the Dorset Charity Golf Day

A huge THANK YOU to everyone that generously supported our Charity Golf Day at The Dorset Golf & Country Club, Bere Regis on Tuesday 19th September 2017.  To our wonderful teams who contributed so much to the success of the day and to our supporters who kindly donated prizes for the winning teams, raffle and auction lots.

Life Education Wessex and Thames Valley rely very much on the generosity and support of the local community.  Thank you to the local businesses, Hardy Signs for the signage on the day, and to Grosvenor Casino, FDS Waste Management, Poundbury Wealth Management, Bellway Homes, Duke Auction, Alan & Thomas and Jordan & Faber Ltd, who sponsored holes.  Also to Jet Plant Ltd who sponsored the ‘hole in one’ competition and with particular thanks to The Commercial Law Practice for their valued sponsorship and support which enabled us to ensure that the day was a great fundraising success. We would also like to thank everyone who contributed to the Silent Auction, Raffle and Prizes; Gye Dibben, Ansvar Insurance Company, Brittany Ferries, Poole Audi, Grosvenor Casino, The Dorset Golf & Country Club, Dorset Cruises, Maddisons Hair Design, Sidmouth Golf Club, Templar Wines, Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club and Hoburne Golf.  Not forgetting our wonderful Barclays Volunteers – we couldn’t have run the day without you!

Well done also to Luke Shaw who won the ‘Longest Drive’, Steve Barrett who got ‘Nearest the Pin’ and Ryan Entwhistle who won ‘Beat the Pro’.

A great day was had by all and most importantly with your support and Barclays generous match funding we managed to raise £11,039.15. This will help us continue our work providing vital health, wellbeing and drug education to Dorset’s children, helping them to keep safe, healthy and happy.

Just a reminder that our next confirmed Charity Golf day will take place in Exeter, Devon, on Thursday 5th June 2018 at the prestigious Woodbury Park Golf and Country Club Hotel. For more details please contact Julie Barrett on julie@lifeeducationwessex.org.uk or call her on 07956 574 493.
