Teeing Up with Alan R Jones

One thing you can never rely on in Wales, is the weather. But, you can rely on a charity golf day to help to raise money for great local causes. Despite the rain, it didn’t dampen the moods of 24 of our customers and suppliers as we took to the green to raise money for Velindre Cancer Centre.

Lucky for us, our Newport Headquarters are positioned near to the beautiful scenery of Tredegar Park Golf Club. The luscious green Par 72 course acted as the perfect locale to tee-up and host a charity golf day to raise money for our charity of the year – Velindre Cancer Centre.

Velindre Cancer Centre is a specialist cancer treatment centre that is based on the perimeters of Cardiff and provides treatment, support and care to over 1.5 million people around South East Wales and beyond. As a centre that many people rely on for its services and support, we wanted to help in any way we could to raise money for Velindre to help it to continue to do the fantastic work it does.

Following a day braving the weather, we are incredibly pleased to announce that our Charity Golf Day successfully raised £1,500 for Velindre! Overall last year, we managed to raise over £3,000 through team events and raffles at our Headquarters in Newport. The money raised from our golf day has already set us well on our way to bettering that figure this year.

Managing Director, Ray Clegg, commented: “A charity golf day is a fantastic way to raise money for great causes whilst enjoying a day with our customers and suppliers. We were so happy to see so many people taking part in our hometown of Newport and were thrilled with the funds we raised for Velindre. The centre does fantastic work and helps thousands of people every year and we are proud to support them.”
