We were joined by 18 teams from across the South East and Anglia including Network Rail, Siemens and Balfour Beatty. Each team of 3 was supported by a local professional golfer which really helped bring out the competitive spirit in all that took part. Winners on the day were the Balfour Beatty team 2, comprising of Peter Ryan, Mark Armond and Grant Lloyd with an impressive score of 95. Pod Trak came second with a score of 92 and Network Rail in third with 91.
To raise additional funds we held a raffle and auction in the evening with a variety of prizes on offer (donated by teams and contractors). These ranged from rounds of golf at some of the best clubs in the country, to dinner at the Shard in London.
Overall from the golf tournament and additional fundraising we were able to raise in excess of £6,000 for St Christopher’s Hospice, a sum that will go a long way in helping them continue the amazing work they do on a day to day basis.
Project Leaders will look forward to next year where we hope to yet again raise more money for deserving causes.
