Held at The Menzies Welcombe Hotel & Spa Golf Club in Stratford-upon-Avon, the fund-raiser has now been running for five years and has in total raised in excess of £66,500 for Teenage Cancer Trust.
The event, which is always extremely well supported by the industry and the wider Volvo Truck and Bus team, again proved popular this year, with an intense golfing competition and a generous evening auction.
Superb selections of prizes were awarded to winners on the day for golfing achievements including nearest the pin, longest drive, beat the pro and a putting competition. But the real winner was the charity itself.
Teenage Cancer Trust exists to improve the quality of life and chances of survival for young people with cancer. It provides them with specialist care and focuses on providing the quality of life and attitude necessary to combat such a cruel and life threatening illness.
“We started an initiative five years ago to raise some money for Teenage Cancer Trust and we made that target,” explained Volvo Bus Managing Director, Nick Page. “However, we didn’t want to stop there. We see the tremendous work that can be done with the money raised and there is a real desire, not just from Volvo Bus, but from the wider industry, to continue to support the charity.
“The charity Golf Day and Dinner is always well attended and it was over-subscribed again this year. I’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who was involved or supported the event. There is a real desire to continue to support this fantastic cause and we intend to do so.”
