Golfers above par as they raise over £47,000 for Norwood

15 July 2013

I would like to thank C J O’Shea & HowardKennedyFSI for their continued support and we were delighted with the day and the fantastic financial result for Norwood.

More than 90 golfers clubbed together on Thursday to help raise over £47,000 for Norwood at its annual Golf Day. Held at Dyrham Park Country Club, the event generated vital funds to support Norwood’s life-changing work with vulnerable children, their families and people with learning disabilities.

After a morning round of golf in the sunshine, the guests were welcomed by Paul Angus, Co-Chair of the Norwood Golf Committee. All enjoyed a glass of Pimm’s and a buffet lunch before awards were presented to the winning joint corporate team, Grant Stanley and Sandrove Brahams. The two runners up teams were Frogmore and Amipak Ltd. Ceri Thomas and Austin Posner won the Longest Drive and Nearest to the Pin awards, respectively.

More than 23 companies from the construction and property industries participated, and firms who organised teams included City and Docklands, Galliard Homes, J S Wright & Co Limited, The Malden Group Plc and Cavendish Legal Group. The event was once again generously sponsored by C J O’Shea Group Ltd and associate sponsor HowardKennedyFSI.

Following the event, David Galman, Co-Chair of the Norwood Golf Committee, said: "I would like to thank C J O’Shea & HowardKennedyFSI for their continued support and we were delighted with the day and the fantastic financial result for Norwood."
