On 25th May 2017, we hosted our Sixth Annual Charity Golf Day Tournament at Trent Lock Golf Club in Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire. Last year we raised a record total of £8322, however this year we managed a whopping new record of £12,260! This consisted of Auction Money, Raffle Prize Money, Penalty Money (including the wearing of shorts penalty fee on a blistering hot day! ☺ ) and very charitable donations on the day from our suppliers and partners.
All proceeds will go directly to our 3 sponsored children’s charities, Rainbows Children’s Hospice in Loughborough, Martin House Hospice in West Yorkshire and Acorns Children’s Hospice in the West Midlands.
This has been our biggest team entry year to date with a total of 24 teams (96 players) competing on another beautiful day, where the sunshine yet again was magnificent!
The Trent Lock Golf Club in Long Eaton deserves a huge thank you once again for hosting our event. The course fairways and greens were absolutely outstanding. The staff were excellent as always, the food was delicious and in particular, Ian at Trent Lock, who helped to make sure everything was ready to go on the day, equally deserves a massive thank you for his efforts year on year!
The winners of this year’s tournament were the AvailableCar Sutton Showroom Team. The competition itself has so far produced 5 different winning teams, one every year, and we hope that the appetite for winning our charity shield continues for years to come!
At the end of the hugely enjoyable day, we’d raised an amazing £12,260, which surpassed last year’s total by £3,938. The funds have been split between the three charities to add a little extra to the amount we already generate from our fantastic monthly customer donations.
AvailableCar has raised over £750,000 in the last eight years for our three chosen children’s charities and this total continues to rise with the help of our wonderful staff, lovely generous customers and our annual charity events such as this golf day!
We would once again like to thank everyone who helped to organise the event and to all who contributed to the day! And a huge thank you to our teams who played in the tournament, helping to raise a phenomenal amount of money for these three wonderful charities.
We hope to see you all again for next year’s event!
