Record golf day

All-time record entries and soaring temperatures made it another day to remember when 27 teams of Glazerite customers joined 14 others for the 13th Glazerite pro-am golf day.

The event, making another return to Wellingborough Golf Club, was all the more memorable for Jeff Dunn, new group sales and marketing director for the Glazerite UK Group – it was not only his very first day in his new job but he also came away with ‘nearest the pin’ for the final hole.

Top team among Glazerite customers was Classic Conservatories, coming third overall with a score of 130-14.

The players weren’t the only winners on the day; individual teams’ contributions as well as companies’ hole sponsorships added up to over £1,700 for the Lewis Foundation, a local charity distributing gift packs among cancer patients in Northamptonshire hospitals.

The Lewis Foundation’s Lorraine Lewis, said: “It was great to be a part of the evening event and help raise the profile of the charity. The money raised will provide 486 gift packs for cancer patients in hospital. We could not achieve as much as we have without the support of companies like Glazerite. We were truly overwhelmed at the generosity of all who took part.”

John Hewitt, chairman of the Glazerite UK Group, said: “It was a thoroughly good day for everyone who took part and the £1,700 raised for the Lewis Foundation was so very much appreciated. They do a lot of great work in the local community for a cause that touches many hearts with our staff and families in the area. Thanks again to all who joined us and made the event a success.”
