Parker Building Supplies golf fundraiser generates £15,000

Published:  12 August, 2015

An total of £15,000 has been raised for the Teenage Cancer Trust from the Parker Building Supplies annual golf day.

More than 250 customers and suppliers attended the event held at the East Sussex National in Uckfield. The Parker Building Supplies head office is located in the East Sussex town and has 23 branches in the South East.

The golf day began with a trade exhibition, followed by 40 teams of four players taking on the 18 holes of the East and West Course greens.

The golf challenge was followed by a three-course dinner, fun and games, and a charity auction hosted by Heart FM’s Jack the Lad.

Parker’s marketing manager, Jamie Pierce, said: “We were so lucky, the weather was near perfect for our annual golf day and we raised a fantastic amount for our partner charity, the Teenage Cancer Trust, thanks to the generosity of our staff, suppliers and, most of all, our customers. We’re already looking forward to next year’s event.”

Team golf events were won by Gow Roofing and Rod Allen and his teammates, with the individual winners being Luke Broomfield of Team Paul Rodemark and Richard Smith of Team Phil Belfield.

The pair of prizes for ‘nearest the pin’ were won by Steve Hampton of Team Allen and Pavestone’s Russell Judd. The ‘longest drive’ winners were Darren Hill of Rowlinson Timber and Adam Skelton of Total Project Management.
