Illingworth Seddon Charity Bonanza

Home » News » Over £8,000 Charity Fundraising

Last Friday, 'Illingworth Seddon' hosted their Annual Charity Golf Day and also saw Phil and Jonathan crossing their fingers for uninterrupted sunshine.

With Golf Buggies duly prepped with goody bags and teams (!), everyone headed off to their allocated hole.

A shotgun start at 12 noon saw 11 Four Balls teeing off for what would be a superb day of golf with only a few individuals dropping out because of Euro 2016 clashes and with Wales (good luck with that) making it to the quarter finals!

As the sun shone, Phil and Jonathan raced around keeping everybody refreshed on the course and they even had time to play a couple of holes with the guests, also trying their hand at 'Beating the Pro' — the least said about that the better!

Competition grew as the day progressed, with prizes up for grabs for 'nearest the pin', 'longest drive' and 'beat the Pro' on the very windy 15th!

The day ended with drinks and banter back at the clubhouse and a hearty meal.

Presentations were made to the competition winners which included 9 bottles of Champagne for those who: 'Beat the Pro' (2 of those going to Jonathan Fell who couldn't resist another try!), 'Nearest the Pin' was Guy Sambrook (The Entertainer) who won a year's supply of Ice Cream, generously donated by Tom Fell from The Cheshire Ice Cream Farm in Tattenhall, Simon Mawdsley (Aaron & Partners ) won a Four Ball kindly donated by Carden Park, for the 'Longest Drive', the well-deserved prize of a Four Ball at Carden Park and a Magnum of Champagne went to Louis Middlehurst (Allington Hughes) for the 'best individual Stableford score' (2nd Year Running) and the Colin McDavid Memorial Team Trophy was awarded to the team from Aaron & Partners (also for the 2nd Year running) along with a bottle of champagne for each team player.

We were lucky to be joined by Angella Rawsthorne from Claire House Hospice, our chosen charity of the year, who gave us an insight into the work undertaken at the Hospice and who also shared with us how the Hospice changed the life for one family who lost their son at the age of 5.

The day was confirmed to be an outstanding success with over £4,000 being raised on the day and with further donations still coming in.Together with company matching, a total of over £8,000 was raised for Claire House Hospice and the St. James's Place Foundation who will allocate to various children's charities.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who took part and also those who couldn't take part but who made a generous donation.
