Tuesday 9th May saw some business colleagues and I hard at work on a course – a golf course, that is!
We were pleased to support the latest James Hopkins Trust Charity Golf Day and, although our team didn’t win, we had a marvellous day out mixing with other Gloucester business people.
Our team was representing Severn Signs and you can see in the picture Rob Wallace, Managing Director of that company, Tony Lawrence, owner of Gloucester’s Kodak Vision Centre and me, Clive Hannis.
The event was held at the magnificent Tewkesbury Park Golf and Country Club. Starting the day with bacon butties, we set to on the impressive 6,500 yard par 72 course. I reckon we deserved their carvery after spending the day battling through woods and avoiding the water hazards.
The James Hopkins Trust is a Gloucester based charity set up in 1989 to care for babies and children under 5 who have life limiting or life threatening conditions. At present they are supporting 90 children and their families and have helped over 500 children since the charity’s formation.
I am very pleased to say that the day raised just under £10,000 for this fantastic cause.
