On 18th May 2023, we joined forces with our corporate sponsors, Novus Black, to bring you our annual Golf Fundraiser at the stunning Bowood Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort in Wiltshire.

The aim was to raise £17,000 to contribute towards generators, food and water, first-aid medication, shelter and anything else we can give to help the people of Ukraine.

We surpassed that goal and raised a whopping £33,000!

On the day, we had 18 teams of 4 (male and female) with a donation of £500 per team.

To kickstart the fun, Bowood provides a traditional ‘golfing breakfast’ consisting of bacon and egg rolls, fruit, tea & coffee before heading to the driving range where a PGA professional is on hand for free tips and guidance before a shotgun start at 11AM.

For those that are extra competitive, we had some mini competitions to win – Nearest the Pin, Least Number of Putts, Longest Drive and Beat the Pro on a Par 3.

Throughout the day, there was a ‘Refreshment Hut’ situated on the 9th & 10th holes with hot and cold snacks and of course, liquid refreshments.

After a day of golfing, Bowood has exceptional changing and showering facilities to freshen up before the evening.

Once everybody is ready, we head back to the Kerry Suite for a buffet dinner and drinks, prize giving for the mini-competitions and a fantastic Auction to raise even more money.

The total team score won the day and £1,000! Congratulations to the winning team ‘IDG’ who scored a total of 97 points and have so kindly donated their £1,000 cash prize back to us to give to the people of Ukraine!👏

Our other winners for the competitions are as follows:

Individual Score: Tom Leigh with 43 points

Putting Competition: Tom Leigh with 27 putts

Beat The Pro: Brett Gillies

Nearest The Pin: Sam Bush

Longest Drive: Matthew Hibbs

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who made this possible, including our sponsors; Novus Black, Imagine Cruising, Dick Lovett, Mitchell Cycles, Save Buy Sell, Souster & Hicks and Empowered Pensions.
