On 12th May we headed to Warwickshire for The Light Fund’s National Charity Golf Day. Together, alongside other members of the licencing industry, we raised over £10,000 for a number of worthy causes.
The Light Fund is a licencing industry charity which raises money to fund charity projects to help a wide range of causes; from the Alzheimer’s society to Dogs for Good. The committee is made up of a group of like-minded individuals from the licensing industry who volunteer their time to support deserving causes.
Open to all abilities, the day had something for everyone involved. Experienced golfers were invited to compete against each other in an 18-hole Better Ball Stableford competition, while beginners were offered an introductory lesson and took part in a Texas scramble golf game.
With wonderful weather at the Warwickshire Golf & Country Club, it didn’t take long for our team to get outside and start enjoying the challenges and the odd drink.
In the evening, we were brought back together to enjoy a lovely two course dinner and the awards presentation.
The winners were:
- Best Beginner: Rachel Wakley (Tesco)
- Winning Beginners team: Mel Thrift (Mattel) Graham Saltmarsh (Turner) Barbara Robinson (Mothercare) Sarah Salmon (Cooneen)
- Par 3 Nearest the Pin: Jon Diver (Character Group)
- Par 4 Nearest the Pin in Two: Nick Vellacott (Highlight PR)
- Straightest Drive: Mark Whitakar (Rubie’s)
- Winning Team: Dave Clark (Kinnerton) Phil Hulme (Kinnerton) Graham Gardiner (Rubies) Mark Whitakar (Rubie’s)
- Winning Individual: Andy Ward (RFU)
“The golf day is a great way of bringing the licensing community together, while raising money for worthy causes,” organisers Patrick Bailey from Blues Clothing and Alicia Davenport from DRP Licensing told us.
“Thank you as well to our sponsors Aardvark Swift, MV Sports and Keith Chapman Productions for all their support. See you again next year.”
We are proud to support The Light Fund and the wonderful work they do, and look forward to working alongside them in the future
