Local family firm’s golf day raises over £7,800 for three worthy charities
A charity golf day held by our Guildford office staff has raised £7,872.36 for Shooting Star Chase Hospice in Guildford, Surrey educational charity SATRO and regional neonatal intensive care support group BURPS.
Eighteen teams made up of Beard staff, suppliers and co-contractors from across the region took part in the 18-hole tournament and fundraising auction at Slinfold Golf & Country Club in Horsham. The event was organised by our team as part of our 125th business anniversary celebrations this year.
The winning team were Jason Clements, Adrian Smith, Russell Drinkwater and Rob Burnell of recruitment specialist Randstad while the individual Stableford winner was Reece Plummer of Leader Scaffolding in Kent.
“We are incredibly grateful for everyone’s generous support and delighted at how much we managed to raise while having lots of fun on the day doing it,” says Tony Taylor, special projects manager at Beard. “Shooting Star Chase Hospice, SATRO and BURPS do some truly amazing work in the community and they all have a special connection with our staff, many of whom have volunteered for them, or have benefited from their wonderful services. We’re truly happy to be raising money for three very worthy causes this year.”
The event is part of our company-wide campaign to raise £125,000 for charities across the South of England. It follows a client and supplier event organised by our Guildford staff last month at Guildford Cricket Club which raised £1,495 for Shooting Star Chase Hospice, SATRO and BURPSAll news
