AN Earby-based insurance company has hailed as a huge success its fourth annual charity golf day held at Skipton Golf Club.
West Craven Insurance Services held the event last Friday, with the 17 competing teams raising over £1500 for Pendleside Hospice.
A number of local businesses entered teams, including Pettys, Pierce Accountants, Canopius, Gissing & Lonsdale, Wardle Storeys, Petherbridge Bassra Solicitors, Fulcrum, Indigo Finance, Silentnight, Tailormade Sourcing and West Craven Insurance Services Ltd. This year’s winning team was from Real Financial Services Ltd. Nearest the Pin was won by Stuart Mulligan from Indigo Financial, Longest Drive was won by Stephen Greenwood from Rolls Royce and Target Golf was won by Ben from Tailor Made Sourcing Ltd.
Following registration players enjoyed a pre-match brunch before taking to the course and proceedings culminated back at the club house with a three course meal and presentation.
West Craven Insurance Service’s Managing Director Ian Clarkson, said: “Once again, everybody really enjoyed the event – it was a great day.”
“West Craven Insurance Services sponsors Skipton Golf Club and once again their facilities and hospitality were first class,” added Mr. Clarkson.
“Our sponsorship of the golf club is part of our support for our community, and so is our continued support for Pendleside hospice, which is why we’re delighted to have raised £1500 to help with the wonderful work they do. This is our fourth annual golf day and on the back of its success, we’re already planning for next year’s event.”
“Special thanks to Silentnight, Wardle Stories and Auto Legal Protection for their kind donations of the Bed, the Leeds Rhinos shirt and the tickets to the Touring Car Championships which were auctioned and also many thanks to everyone who donated prizes for the raffle – especially the Woodland Spa, who donated two spa days.”
Christina Cope, Pendleside Hospice’s Fundraising Manager, said: “Once again, we’re very grateful to West Craven Insurance Services for their ongoing support. Proceeds from their Golf Day will support the vital work we do to promote and enhance quality of life for people with a life-limiting illness, and their families.”
