Advanced golf day raises over £5,000
UK: Specialist chemical manufacturer Advanced Engineering celebrated its 22nd annual golf day last week by raising over £5,000 for a charity supported by guest of honour Simon Weston.
This year’s event, again held at at Sherfield Oaks Golf Club in Hampshire, was won by Andy Thomas from FSW, whose 44 points put him out in front of a field of 60 golfers.
The participants and guests were later treated to an evening meal and an inspirational speech by Falklands War veteran and author Simon Weston.
Advanced Engineering chairman Barry Lea said: “We are privileged to work with so many good people in our industry – particularly our customers, distributors and suppliers. Days like this allow us to thank them for their support… while also supporting the wider community that we work within.”
Advanced Engineering presented Simon Weston with a cheque for £5,000 for Changing Faces, a charity helping those with visible disfigurements to reach their potential. An additional £145 was also raised on the day by those attending the event.
