We were delighted to hand over a cheque yesterday to Jean Wilson at New Hope Worcester, following our recent golf day held at Ombersley Golf Club.
Businesses from across Worcestershire and beyond supported the event, which comprised a popular 9-hole format followed by dinner and drinks. Those who came for a round included Halls Worcester, Thursfields solicitors, SB Print, SME solicitors, Smith & Williamson, Handelsbanken, HSBC, Prosperity Wealth, Harrisons and Blackstar Sports Management.
Additional funds were raised through a raffle which saw generous prize donations from St Andrew’s Town Hotel, Droitwich, Blackstar Sports Management and Sub Studio Photography amongst others. Ollie Farr, one of our sponsored golf professionals was on hand with short game tips before tee off and faced some fierce competition on the beat the pro event – congratulations to Paul Madden for not only beating the pro but achieving nearest the pin!
It was also great to hear of New Hope’s latest award as the charity was crowned winner in the category ‘Most Outstanding Special Educational Needs Provider’, a win which saw New Hope judged against a large and diverse range of worthy charities throughout the UK.
