Businesses swing into action for Nottinghamshire Hospice
Businessmen and women from across Nottinghamshire swung into action in aid of charity at Ruddington Grange Golf Club.
A 76-strong field took part in the second annual Yorkshire Bank golf day and helped raise £2,500 for Nottinghamshire Hospice, which relies on £1.2 million of donations every year to operate its home on Woodborough Road in Mapperley, Nottingham.
A team led by Yorkshire Bank private banking customer George Davies came out on top on the day and was closely followed by a four-man Yorkshire Bank team made up of Carl Dickinson, Managing Partner at the bank's Financial Solutions Centre in Castle Meadow Road, Phil Trueman, Russell Kilner and Stan Harrison.
The longest drive of the day honours went to Dave King of Nexus Total Print Solutions, while Richard Keyworth took home the nearest the pin trophy.
On completion of 18 holes golfers were treated to complimentary massages, before enjoying an evening meal which included the prize giving along with a raffle and auction.
Event organiser Mike Sherwood, partner Independent Financial Advice at Yorkshire Bank in Nottingham, said he was delighted with how the day went.
"It really was an excellent day and everyone who took part seemed to really enjoy the occasion and at the same time show their support for a really worthy cause," he said.
"Nottinghamshire Hospice provides tremendous care services for the local community in Nottingham and we were delighted businesses and our customers could join us again this year in showing their support for the organisation.
"There was some tremendous golf played on the day and I'd like to thank everyone who took part and also all the businesses who kindly donated prizes for the raffle and auction."Back
