60 people take part in the company’s second annual golf day to raise money for 2023’s chosen charities
TRAD UK held its second charity golf day on September 14th at the PGA National Course at The Belfry. This follows last year’s highly successful golf day at Gleneagles – chosen because it was the home club of former TRAD director, John Paterson.
This year’s event attracted 60 people, with teams coming mainly from clients, alongside some suppliers and a couple of TRAD teams. As well as raising money from team entrance fees, TRAD held a raffle and auction during the evening, with prizes ranging from golf umbrellas to complimentary days at international rugby matches and signed shirts.
“This was a fantastic day at a great course,” said Darren Cooper, TRAD UK’s Depot Head in Birmingham, who organised the event. “We had 15 fantastic teams, and a great day of golf. Congratulations to all the prize winners, and a huge thank you to everyone who took part and helped to boost our charity total for 2023.”
There were several prize winners on the day. TRAD Sales Rep, Wes Bates, won the prize for Nearest the Pin, and Chris Crane from Kong Scaffolding won Longest Drive. Tony Colman from AMP Scaffolding and Billy Farmer of AS Scaffolding also won prizes, and the overall winner was Andrew Smilie, again of AS Scaffolding, who travelled down from Glasgow early that morning to win by two points!
“We’d really like the TRAD Golf Day to become an annual fixture in clients’ calendars,” adds Darren. “We are grateful to have such generous clients, and our chosen charities this year – Marie Curie Cancer Care, Anthony Nolan and Cancer Research UK.”
TRAD UK’s next charity event is the Bournemouth Half Marathon, where runners from some of the company’s southern depots are taking part on behalf of all three charities.
