Thirteen may be an unlucky number for some, but that certainly wasn’t the case at an annual fundraising golf day held by a Wolverhampton logistics firm, which raised a fantastic £8,000 for Marie Curie.
The 13th annual Pallet-Track golf day was held at Morley Hayes Golf Club in Derbyshire, with 64 players across 16 teams competing for the overall prize, before enjoying a celebration dinner, prize-giving event, raffle and auction.
The teams were invited from Pallet-Track’s headquarters, the pallet network’s members and its partner organisations.
Taking the overall honours in 2018 were The Dream Team, from Pontypridd-based Interhaul and their golfers Mark Waite, Dean Sargent, Stan Devonish and Nathan Wigg.
The runners-up prize went to Mockney Cockney, the team from Wimbledon-based ELB Partners and their golfers Peter Eason, Russell Newman, John Allen and Rod Jenkin.
Elsewhere, the putting competition was won by Andrew Williams, with Allan Robotham taking the honours for nearest the pin and James Ward winning longest drive.
Nigel Parkes, Pallet-Track founder and managing director, said: “Our golf day just goes from strength to strength every year and 2018 was no different.
“As always, it’s a great opportunity to get all of our members and suppliers together to enjoy a great day – and, most importantly, raise money for a great cause.
“Marie Curie is a thoroughly deserving recipient of the money and we look forward to supporting them throughout the rest of 2018.”
Marie Curie supports people living with terminal illnesses and their families to make the most of the time they have together.
Marie Curie Nurses work night and day in people’s homes across the UK and the charity’s hospices, providing care and vital emotional support for people living with a terminal illness.
