Where there’s a will, there’s a way…
As the old saying goes, it’s better late than never and that stacks up for our charity golf day which happens to be our best-ball yet…
A much anticipated event in our annual calendar, our charity golf day is one that both staff and clients look forward too. Although the future looked bleak for the golf day’s scheduled date in June, we kept our eye on the ball to do what we could to ensure we kept up our tradition of raising vital funds for Velindre Cancer Centre, even in uncertain times.
With lockdown restrictions lifting and the determination to get above par, we hosted our charity golf day in September and raised an impressive £1,840 for our charity of choice.
As a business that is Newport born and bred, Tredegar Park Golf Club was the ideal location to sink a putt in the name of charity. Taking to the green with 24 players in town, the Par 72 course presented an enjoyable challenge for all levels of players with beautiful, undulating views of local Rogerstone.
“Our golf day is just one aspect of our annual fundraising activities and tends to act as a springboard for the other events we run throughout the year. After an unpredictable few months, it was important for us to host this event, if restrictions allowed, to raise vital charitable funds and also to give staff and clients something to look forward too after a challenging year. We are over the moon with the money raised for Velindre and would like to thank each and every person who donated and played,” commented Managing Director, Ray Clegg.
Our charity of choice, Velindre Cancer Centre, is a specialist facility that provides valuable services to over 1.5 million people in South East Wales and beyond. The money raised will help Velindre to continue to do the wonderful work it does and is a charity that is very close to our heart.
