Another un-fore-getable day held by Silver Lining
Last Friday 20th July, we held our second annual golf day in aid of Naomi House and Jacksplace at Skylark Golf and Country Club. We invited our customers and other local businesses in the area to join us on the course for a day filled with drives, puts and a couple of “fores”!
We kicked off the day nice and early at 7.30am with a hearty breakfast of coffee and bacon rolls before the teams headed out on the course for a shotgun start. There were some impressive (and also some slightly less impressive) shots taken throughout the day, and all the teams did well with all abilities showing their mettle under glorious sunshine. In fact so glorious, the ‘refreshments’ on the course went down exceptionally well and we had to top up before play had finished!
After all teams made their way back to the club house and scores were added up, we had some outstanding entertainment from Kevin Carpenter, an international and world-renowned trick shot champion. Who knew you could hit a ball with a 6ft club atop an exercise ball? Or on a unicycle?! The gasps were audible and the laughs, hearty.
Once we were suitably awed it was time for a BBQ out on the terrace to kick-back and shoot the breeze about the day’s event. The drinks and conversation flowed and we took the opportunity to sell raffle tickets in aid of Naomi House and Jacksplace, a children’s hospice just outside of Winchester. We donated several prizes, as did Santander Bank and Skylark Golf and Country Club.
We are pleased to announce that we raised a total of £337.04 so a big thank you to all who donated!
Prizes were also given, with Business Builders winning the illustrious top spot of ‘Best Four Ball’, Orega coming 2nd and Delta Ventilation close behind them at 3rd. Our very own Account Manager, Martyn Turp and his team which included Networkers Technology, were the not-so-lucky recipients of the ‘Most Golf Played’ award.
A great time was had by all, and we have already started our plans for next years’ event which is set to be even bigger and better. Thank you to all those who attended, those who sponsored and to Kevin Carpenter from KC Golf Show and Skylark Golf and Country Club for making the day such a success.
