Golf day raises £2,000 for charities

Golf enthusiasts from a variety of Gloucestershire firms took part in the Roberts Limbrick corporate golf day yesterday (Thursday).

Keen golfers from a range of county firms participated in the event at the Puckrup Hall Hotel & Golf Club, Tewkesbury.

Joining players from the Gloucester-based firm of architects and designers were golfers from various developers, house builders, consultants and construction companies.

The event was a four-person Texas Scramble with a Shotgun start, followed by an evening meal and presentation

The winning team with a gross score of 59/48 nett was Craig Wall, John Hickman, Steve Davis and David Merrick.

There were prizes for the top five teams, nearest the pins on all par 3s and a longest drive.

The longest drive prize was won on the day by 49-year-old Roberts Limbrick director Aaron Terry who split the fairway with his 280 yard drive.

The golf day raised over £1,700 for the two chosen charities - the James Hopkins Trust in Gloucester and St David's Hospice Care in Newport - which Roberts Limbrick will round up to £2,000, so each of the charities will receive £1,000.

Danielle Cox, Roberts Limbrick's events co-ordinator, said everyone had had a great day.

"The main aim of our golf day is to raise much needed funds for local charities," she said.

"This year we wanted to raise the bar and asked our guests to donate £20 for our charities. In return for this kind donation we offered the opportunity to win/participate in our charity draws/events throughout the day."

The companies involved were: Simpson Associates, Robert Hitchins, Alliance Leisure, Strategic Leisure, Pellikaan, Gleeson Land, Asbri Planning, Martin Commercial Properties, Barnwoods, Cumming Group, Faithful and Gould (Atkins), Wakemans, Rodgers Leask, Ward Williams Associates, McLoughlin Planning, Galliford Try, Lichfields and Barrie Beard.
