R. Benson Charity Golf Day 2019

The annual R. Benson charity golf day raised over £6,800 to be shared equally between for our three nominated charities, SeeAbility, Kids Cancer Charity and Bright Cancer Care on 8th July, at Northwood Golf Club, thanks to the generosity of our guests.

We would like to thank the sponsors of our event including Bansal, Brewers, Howells Solutions, JJ Roofing, Magnet, Pacific Steel, Rapid Electrical and Travis Perkins for their generous contribution and our supply chain for donating fantastic raffle prizes including Dulux, HSS, PTS, Wolseley, and STS. We’ll miss the Dulux Dog in the office, but he’s gone to a good home!

The winners of our competitions were:

Winning Team: Wayne Wise, Frank Brennan, Lee Wells, Harry Stone
Overall Winner: Chris Constable
28 Handicap Winner: Frank Brennan
Nearest the Pin: Jamie Chaplin
Longest Drive: Jon Keogh

The club pro was busy all day on hole number 15, not many people managed to beat him!

We look forward to doing it all again next year.
