Driving for success raised more than £4,000 at leading regional law firm Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ annual golf day, with all the money going to the firm’s charitable trust to be distributed to local causes.
21 teams from the Three Counties teed off at the exclusive Blackwell Golf Club near Bromsgrove, with some tempting prizes spurring them on. The winning team was from Allied Irish Bank, taking away the trophy, followed by the team from Crowe Clark Whitehill, only one point behind, with a team from CVR Global, last year’s winners, taking the next spot, two points away.
Adam Jordan and Jim Stevenson won the nearest-to-the-pin awards, and the longest drive prize went to Matt ‘the Beast’ Reynolds. All the players were able to take home goodie bags including sponsors’ products.
Sam Payne, who leads Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ restructuring and insolvency team, said “I was delighted to be able to take part myself this year – the course is stunning and a real pleasure to play, and we were, as a firm, very pleased to have been able to raise a substantial sum for the Trust that will be distributed in due course to local good causes.”
Mat Waddington, partner and Secretary of the Harrison Clark Rickerbys Charitable Trust, said: “The golf day is such an important event for the trust and we’d like to thank the firm and our sponsors, Eminent Crisis Management Group Ltd, Sutcliffe & Co Insurance Brokers, and Border Office Supplies & Systems for all their support.
“Sutcliffe & Co Insurance Brokers sponsored the nearest the pin competition and Three Counties Showground, West Midlands Safari Park, Blackwell Golf Course, Worcester Warriors, Scott Farms International and AMROS Golf also supported the event, for which we are very grateful. We are delighted with the amount raised, all of which will be distributed to good causes in the three counties.”
The day, which was organised by AMROS Golf Management, ended with a presentation dinner and an auction.
