It was a brilliant day and we’ve raised close to £5000. We’re incredibly grateful to our Events Committee and our sponsors today, CNG, British Gas, Cargills and Stephenson Control. Thank you to everyone who came and we hope to see you again at future events.

Attendees enjoyed a “blind chipping” competition which was won by Andy Hawkeswell, a team from Vocalink took first prize with British Gas taking a very close second with only one point in it!”
