Charity Golf Day at Dale Hill
Steve is the four-times European javelin champion and has won the Commonwealth Games three times. He is the first British athlete to have medalled at three consecutive Olympic Games, and on another three occasions was ranked world number one. Consistency has been the key to Steve’s successful career, and whenever faced with setbacks or injury he had the ability to overcome and produce magnificent performances.
Rebecca and her team managed to get sponsors for the tees and the greens ensuring we could raise as many funds as possible for our charity golf day. The event was held at the prestigious Dale Hill Golf Course in Kent, situated in over 350 acres of fine grounds, high on the Sussex Weald, Dale Hill Hotel and Golf Club combine the best in modern facilities and style. Located on the Kent and East Sussex borders between the villages of Flimwell and Ticehurst. Many of the hotel’s spacious 50 bedrooms are located on the south side of the hotel, offering stunning views across the golf course and the surrounding Weald.
The day began at 08h30 where guests were welcomed with coffee and bacon rolls before the teams of golfers started teeing off at a shotgun start. Halfway around the course, our golfers were greeted by a golf buggy of drinks and snacks to keep them hydrated throughout the day! After the guests had completed their eighteen holes, there were welcomed in the clubhouse with a drinks reception and a delicious three-course meal. After a light-hearted speech from our company ambassador, Steve Backley, we concluded the afternoon with a silent auction.
Thank you for the all support from our clients who brought along a team for the day which in turn, helped us to raise an incredible £3000 for the charity, Ellenor. The charity provides invaluable care and support to babies, children and teenagers, their parents, siblings, and family members through what are extremely difficult and unimaginable times. The charity is relentless in its commitment to provide 24-hour palliative and end-of-life care to children in their own homes.
“As an Ambassador for Ellenor, I am extremely proud to see the amazing work which the charity carries out in our local community and it is our pleasure to be fundraising for them at this fantastic company event! says Business Director, Jo Wimble-Groves.
