Available Car Annual Charity Golf Day raises over £12,000 for children’s charities Rainbows, Acorns and Martin House.

This year our annual Charity Golf Day took place on Thursday 26th May at Trent Lock Golf and Country Club in Long Eaton, Nottingham.

We started the morning off with everyone meeting up and reminiscing on last years event over a coffee & bacon cob.

Our CEO, Michael Bell conducted his introductory speech, and once all teams were registered, we headed out for the course, but not before a team photo!

We had a total of 19 teams participate this year, and the stakes were high, as reigning champions PKF Smith Cooper weren’t submitting a team of four this year, so it was an open playing field! Before the day began, we had raised over £3000 on entry fees alone!

Luckily, the rain held off during play and after the 4 hour round of golf teams started to return and the club restaurant had a delicious carvery dinner waiting for us all.

Scorecards were then totalled up by the Golf Pro and the winning team was announced as Plus Vending Services. A huge well done to the team and their name will now be engraved on the Available Car Charity Golf Shield. We’re sure they will be back next year, raring to defend their title!

After lunch, golfing penalties were totalled up and the raffle & auction then took place. We auctioned off some amazing memorabilia and had some brilliant prize lots for the raffle!

We also totalled up our snack buggy takings, which surpassed last year!

Credit to Sarah & Pam for their hard work and legendary sales tactics!

We are all very much looking forward to next year! Will Plus Vending Services defend their title or will we have another new winner again?
