Inaugural Skcin Charity Golf Day at Stapleford Park, in association with Constructing Better Health and Polypipe, was a huge success.
The event which took place at Stapleford Park in Leicestershire, giving nearly 70 golfing enthusiasts the opportunity to experience the Championship course at Stapleford was a great day from start to finish. A chance to experience a VIP day, golfers arrived to tea and bacon sandwiches, they were then treated to a golf skills workshop by top seniors golfer and Skcin patron, Mr Gary Wolstenholmes MBE before venturing out to play 18 holes in Stapleford's glorious parkland. On their return pre-dinner drinks were supplied before a sumptious three course meal in the grand main house at Stapleford. The meal was followed by a popular after dinner speech by Mr Graham Poll, who was an asset to the day, along with prize giving and a charity auction. In all a very good day was had and approximately £2,500 raised for the charity from donations and auction bids. We would like to thank all who generously contributed to the event and hope that we can entice more people back next year as we attempt to repeat our success.
