Weston Homes is delighted to announce that a record-breaking £155,000 has been raised for St Clare Hospice at the 24th Annual Golf Day.
With the incredible help and support from those who took part and the sponsors, an incredible £155,000 was raised, beating last year’s £110,000.
The event took place on Friday 31st August 2018 at Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf and Spa in Colchester. A total of 60 teams took part in the competition which comprised of two courses. Britannia Sealants came 1st on the Gainsborough course and JC Flooring finished 1st on the Constable course, and were also crowned the overall winners of the Daniel Robinson Cup.
Following the golf was an evening of entertainment, with guests enjoying a four-course dinner and entertainment provided by actor and singer Shaun Williamson. To help raise even more money for the charity, an auction took place which included experiences and items such as a day trip to France to play Golf with Weston Homes’ Chairman Bob Weston, Cricket at the Oval, a signed framed print of the Two Ronnies, a Land Rover Experience and Anthony Joshua signed boxing shorts. The experience that raised the most on the night was a parachute jump with the RAF, which raised £20,000 alone, and will be undertaken by the ladies at Weston Homes that helped organise such a fantastic event.
The money raised will help St Clare Hospice continue to provide free, compassionate care and support to hundreds of adults with life-limiting illnesses, their families and carers across West Essex and the East Hertfordshire border.
Weston Homes would like to thank the teams that took part in making this year’s Annual Golf Day the most successful so far!
