Cheers all round at Cowdray Golf Day
Following the success of last year’s fundraising Golf Day in aid of the Aldingbourne Trust, Cowdray Park Golf Club was once again the setting for 16 teams of golfers who turned out to play a competitive round of 18 holes on Wednesday (25 May).
“We had a fantastic day, both on and off the course, with great camaraderie and luckily the rain stayed away,” said Abigail Rowe of the Aldingbourne Trust. “We’re delighted that the event raised a profit for us of just over £6,000 so we would really like to thank everyone who joined us and our sponsors for making such a great contribution.”
As main sponsors of the event, Henry Adams played three teams. The overall trophy was won by Partner at the Chichester office, Simon Lush.
Gail Chisham of Henry Adams added: “The event ran so smoothly thanks to some superb organisation by the Aldingbourne Trust and the staff at Cowdray Golf Club. We’re pleased and proud to be supporting their fundraising efforts, including the sponsored Arundel walk last Saturday.”
The money raised from both events will go towards funding a new visitors’ centre at the Trust to enable them to train and employ more people with learning disabilities for a sustainable future. Ambassador and client of the Trust, Debbie White, organised the raffle which raised more than £500, and Andrew Pickthall, the Trust’s official photographer, was in charge of capturing the event throughout the day.
“Our next fundraiser is on the 22 July when Martin Curry, head of our land department, and his team will be cycling 50 miles around many of the new homes developments we are marketing,” said Gail. “Hopefully they’ll be getting lots of support and sponsorship along the 50 mile route!”
