Our first Rocal Charity Golf Day took place at Elsham Golf Club, near Brigg this month. The near perfect conditions made it a wonderful day beginning with bacon sandwiches, and ending with pie and chips and an exciting awards ceremony.
The day supported our chosen charity Victim Support, who provide specialist practical and emotional support to victims and witnesses of crime. A fantastic grand total of £1500 was raised from our 48 contestants and sponsors which included ERA Home Security, Metsa Wood, 3D Laminates, Winkhaus UK and Mila Hardware.
Included in the day were several competitions, including nearest the pin, longest drive, a putting competition and an organised Hole-In-One competition with a prize of £20,000! But the winning team of Richard Cole, Matt Janicki (Rehau), Guy Hubble and Paul Edwards (RegaLead) managed to put our Rocal Golfers to shame winning the overall team event with a score of 90 stableford points.
Our 48 contestants were a mix of customers and suppliers from the range of Rocal companies and all took the opportunity to network, meet new people and polish up their golf skills.
To finish our Golf Day, a raffle took place which included prizes such as a golf lesson with a professional kindly donated by Elsham Golf Club itself, plenty of bottles of wine and a specially donated top prize of a DoorCam from ERA Home Security which wowed all of our guests and the lucky winner was sure to set it up as soon as he arrived home.
The successful day was not without effort, our Rocal team had worked for months to ensure the day was perfectly faultless – of which it was. We already can’t wait for our next charity Golf Day next year, and look forward to welcoming more of our customers and suppliers to share such a special fundraising effort with us.
A huge thank you to all who came, donated and sponsored to make the day such a success. Be sure to keep your eye out for next year’s event.
