Waregrain Group present golf day proceeds to Duchess of Kent Hospice...

Added on 21/06/18

We would like to thank Fern Hayes (Community Fundraising Manager) from Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice for taking the time out to meet us during our visit today and accept the £750 Waregrain raised during our recent golf event.


Sue Ryder Care do some incredible work supporting people with life limiting conditions and their families within the Berkshire community.


We decided to raise money for this very worthy cause after speaking with our Reading Head Office team who felt this was a cause close to their hearts.


The Duchess of Kent Hospice were supportive and caring to Waregrain’s Laura Sheppard and her family when her father Trevor was sadly diagnosed with illness, a lovely man missed by his friends and family.


We would also like to thank our golf participants who kindly donated £10 to enter the nearest the pin competition and support us in raising funds.


Thank you Duchess of Kent Hospice for the amazing work you do...

The team event was won by Team Rosso on 93 points with a team consisting of Nigel Garrett, Jason Morse (both Upol) Kevin Lloyd and Lee Patman (both BASF). Second place was Team Inferno on 91 points with a team consisting of Martin McCarthy, John Bowler (both Days Motor Group), Andy Green and Lee Woodward (both PPG) and finishing in third place was Team Andes on 88 points with a team consisting of Alex Green, Noel Jennings, Richard Howick and Frank Delaney (All Akzo Nobel).

The longest drive competition was won by Steve Digby (Perfect Paint) and the nearest the pin competition was won by Jason Morse (Upol). The nearest the pin competition had an entry fee donation in aid of the Duchess of Kent Hospice in Reading which also included entry into a prize draw with this being won by Mark Boret (Fleetline).

With the kind donations from participants, £750 was raised in aid of the Duchess of Kent Hospice which is a very worthy cause.
