A charity golf day arranged by CNC and Worthing-based solicitors Bennett Griffin has raised an impressive £1,600 for the St Barnabas House Hospice.
More than fifty of their customers got into the swing of things on 12 June at the Singing Hills Golf Course in Albourne near Hassocks, East Sussex.
There was a Stableford competition to see who had the best overall individual and team scores.
There were also tests of golfing skill including a charity island challenge at the second hole. Players had to drive across water to an island in the middle of a lake to get their balls onto the green.
Fund-raising and networking
All the competitions helped to raise funds for St Barnabas Hospice.
CNC’s Graham Lind says: “We and Bennett Griffin have been working together for some time now and St Barnabas House is a charity close to both our hearts. Being able to combine a networking event with raising money for charity was the perfect scenario. We’re thrilled with how much was raised and, importantly, that more people are now aware of the wonderful work St Barnabas House and other hospices like them do for our community.”
The Chief Executive of St Barnabas House Hospice, Hugh Lowson, commented: “We are so grateful to everyone who attended the golf day but, in particular, our thanks go to CNC and Bennett Griffin for raising such a huge amount. This money will go to work immediately enabling us to care for more people in our community that need our specialist care than ever before.”
Brighton managed IT services
Twenty five of CNC’s customers came to test their golfing skills in the stunning surroundings of the for Singing Hills course.
For the managed IT services provider , which is based near Brighton, it was a great opportunity to play host to their diverse range of customers who came from across the South East to enjoy the golf and raise funds for a worthy cause.
