Grantham car dealer Victor Wood sponsors successful golf day
Grantham car dealer Victor Wood sponsored an annual charity golf day to raise money for a hospice.
On Thursday the Kia dealer supported Newark Golf Club’s annual charity day in which more than 90 members played to raise money for local hospice Beaumond House.
The event raised more than £4,087 for the charity, which provides care to patients with terminal illnesses and their families in the Newark area.
Members paid a special fee to play in this year’s tournament at Nottinghamshire’s county course, and all proceeds will go to Beaumond House to help them care for the 500 patients they house every year. Competition on the course was even more fierce when Victor Wood promised to award a brand new Sportage Axis Edition for any player who managed to hit a hole in one.
Unfortunately no one proved lucky enough on the day, but despite that the club managed to raise the total of £2,044 and Barclays Bank in Newark have pledged to double this for the good cause.
Andy Doyle, Dealer Principle of Victor Wood, said: “It means so much for us to get involved in local charity initiatives such as this. The day was great fun, and despite no-one winning our brand new Kia Sportage Axis Edition, a huge amount of money was raised for a great cause.”
Peter Smith, Newark Golf Club Seniors Secretary and Treasurer, said: “Newark Golf Club has a long standing history with Beaumond House. It’s important for us to support them, and over the past 19 years we have donated over £33,000 to the hospice – we’re thrilled to add to that today.”
