Members of the East Midlands business community came together on Thursday 21st June to take part in the annual Fraser Brown charity golf day at the Nottinghamshire Golf and Country Club, raising more than £4,000.
The funds raised by Nottingham and Lincoln-based law firm Fraser Brown Solicitors, will go towards Autism East Midlands; a charity which provides support to families and individuals affected by autism, and Newlife; a charity that helps disabled children and their families across the UK.
The event, which welcomed 144 players from the local business community, saw 36 teams of four take on the Signature and Championship courses at the club.
Funds were raised on both courses through taking part in ‘beat the pro’ competitions, as well as a raffle at the prize giving dinner afterwards. Event sponsors on the day included 200 Degrees, Alea Casino, Carlsberg, Champions (UK) PLC, Maserati and Castle Rock Brewery.
Speciality coffee roasters 200 Degrees and Castle Rock Brewery were also seen around the course providing goods for the players taking part, with all money collected given to charity.
Skilled teams Commercial Property Partners (CPP) and Santander were in the playoff as the two course winners, with CPP taking home the accolade and trophy for best team. The multi winners of the ‘beat the pro’ competition were also recognised and one from each course won a Maserati for a weekend.
John Tansur, commercial director at Fraser Brown, said: “We had a brilliant turn out at the event and we were pleased to see so many familiar faces from businesses across the East Midlands on the day. We smashed our fundraising target for Newlife and Autism East Midlands, which are charities that we have chosen to support throughout the course of 2018.”
Tim Clarke of Fraser Brown added: “I’d like to thank all of those who attended for helping to make it a really enjoyable day but also for making donations to two fantastic causes. This is the 5th golf day we have held in as many years and every year we are humbled by the support so many give us in making this a great event.”
Vic Sheret, a Newlife charity ambassador was amongst the attendees at the charity golf day. She said: “As the charity of the year for Fraser Brown Solicitors, Newlife Charity are delighted that their support will result in disabled and terminally ill children in Nottinghamshire receiving vital specialist equipment that they urgently need to improve their quality of life.
“Having attended the Fraser Brown golf day at the Nottinghamshire Golf Club it was inspiring to be a part of such a well organised and well delivered event. The entire day went smoothly and everyone enjoyed being a part of a very special day. Having worked in the charitable sector for over 30 years I can state without hesitation that this was one of the best events I have ever attended proving Fraser Brown’s commitment to their local community.”
