After a two-year Covid enforced break, SCP and ForgeCo have held their second Scaffolders Golf Championship at the prestigious Belfry Golf and Resort raising £600 for charity.

Scaffold and Construction Products (SCP) and ForgeCo, suppliers of scaffold and construction products and components, have held its second Scaffolders Golf Championship to crown “SCP Scaffolder of the Year” Claret Jug at the prestigious Belfry Golf and Resort near Birmingham.

The popular golf event took place on the 12th September it was well attended by many from the scaffolding community. Scaffolders from all over the country had travelled miles to attend and play the testing PGA course.

After a tremendous game, Andrew Hetherington of Abbey Scaffolding was crowned 2022 Champion with an incredible score of 42 points, closely followed by Calum Baker of SWA Scaff in second place and in a very close third place was taken by Robbie Millar of Summit Marine. The ‘Longest drive’ was won with a huge hit by Paul Cross of NB Scaffolding and ‘Nearest the pin’ by Mark Harris of No 8 Scaffolding.

The golf day supported a local boy, 11-year-old Lee, who has a life-limiting illness, by raising money to help have a motor fitted to Lee’s wheelchair and with any remaining funds buy a footmuff and rain cover so he can get about no matter the weather.

SCP & ForgeCo were delighted to announce a total of £600 was raised for this deserving cause and wished Lee all the very best. They said: “Going forward we expect to see the event become the premier Golf event for the scaffolding industry and are already looking forward to a bigger and better day next year.”

“As from all the management we would like to thank every player who made effort to travel distances to join this year’s event, we are very proud to be the sponsors of the UK Scaffolders Golf Championship!”
