Finance experts putt their best foot forward for Hollie

Maisemore-based financial planning advisors Kirby and Knott are celebrating their annual golf day – with this year's event raising £8,500 for the Hollie Gazzard Trust.

Held at the Lilley Brook Golf Club in Cheltenham, 88 golfers donned suncream and hats to compete in blistering heat on September 7th. Both team and individual competitions teed off to raise funds for the trust's crucial outreach work.

Alex Kirby, of Kirby & Knott Financial Planning, said: "It was a superb day. The weather was amazing, and the course was in top condition. We are very fortunate with such great support from golfers sponsors and donations of prizes. We filled all our team spaces within four weeks of the day being publicised and had a waiting list after that!"

Headline sponsors of the day were One to One Recruitment, Blue Sky Signs and Redkite Solicitors.

Richard Knott added: "We have supported the Hollie Gazzard Trust for nearly five years now and are huge advocates of the work they do in terms of raising awareness of the issues Hollie faced.

"Their Corporate Ambassador scheme is a great way for us to support our old school and we have recently agreed to donate an educational session to Sir Thomas Rich's School to help raise awareness of domestic abuse and stalking in younger students. We'd highly recommend any business getting involved."

The winning team of the day were KJE Engineering, which comprised of husband and wife couples Simon and Julia Walker and Barbara and Andy Babbage. Julia also collected the individual prize on the day.

Nick Gazzard, CEO and Founder of the Hollie Gazzard Trust said: "Kirby and Knott delivered another fantastic golf day at Lilley Brook. The Trust does not receive any grant funding so rely heavily on events like the golf day to raise funds that will allow us to continue the work that we undertake in schools, colleges and universities, to help young people become better citizens and make our communities more resilient to the present-day challenges. We are very grateful to all the sponsors, golfers and staff at Kirby and Knott for their generosity."
