On Thursday 12th September, HB&O welcomed 70 guests to its annual charity golf day at Welcombe Hotel in Stratford upon Avon, to raise money for the Heart of England Community Foundation (HOECF). As well as the traditional round of eighteen holes, there was a new challenge this year in the shape of a crazy golf course.
Through sponsorship and a raffle, the event raised £3,160 to help fund community projects and voluntary groups in Coventry and Warwickshire.
Thomas Dawe, Director of HB&O Financial Services, achieved the highest individual score and the winning overall team consisted of Chris White, Nick Kirby, Thomas Dawe, and Andrew Brough (pictured from left to right above). The winner of the crazy golf tournament was Roger Scott from Lloyds Bank, with an impressive score of 21 over the 9 holes.
Mark Ashfield, Managing Director at HB&O said: “We take fundraising seriously at HB&O – but we do like to have a bit of fun too which is what this event is all about. I’d like to thank everyone who took part, including our sponsors, all of whom have helped us support the valuable work done by voluntary groups in our local communities.”
