GOLFERS got into the swing of fundraising recently raising more than £2,500 for Primrose Hospice at a charity golf day.
The teams were taking part in the Vietec Charity Golf Day 2019 at the Gaudet Luce in Droitwich on Friday, June 7.
Despite the rain, everyone remained in high spirits and enjoyed a breakfast, professional tips from Elizabeth Mallet and a two-course lunch as well as a round of golf.
Danielle Connelly of Redditch-based Vietec said: “We were pleased to announce we raised over £2,500 from the golf day which will go towards our annual target of raising £10,000 for Primrose Hospice.
“The money will help support The Primrose Hospice and all the wonderful services they provide to our local community.”
The winning team were MFG Solicitors, made up of Samuel Pedley, Tom Esler, Adam Pedley and James Dyas with second and third place going to teams from ICCP and Connectix.
Prizes were also given to Gary Canavan who had the Individual Best Score of the Day, Steve Everrett was Nearest the Pin while Mark Emmett won Longest Drive.
A raffle on the day included a £100 American Golf Shopping voucher, four-ball for the Gaudet Luce and a Marriot Golf voucher as well as an Axis CCTV camera worth £535, entry for two to Stratford racecourse and Venture Studios family photo shoots.
Amy Flemming, corporate fundraiser, said: “It looks like the rainy weather did not dampen anyone’s spirits at the Vietec Charity Golf Day.
“We are really grateful to Vietec and all they are doing to raise money for Primrose Hospice to help keep our services free for people with life-limiting conditions and their families.
“Your local hospice has to raise £1.75million to keep these services free with more than 85 per cent of this total having to come from fundraising.
“Businesses like Vietec choosing to make us their charity of the year goes a long way to help us reach this target.”
