The Acorn Group and Judge & Priestley are delighted to have hosted the Second Annual Bromley Property Group Charity Golf Day on 10th May at Sundridge Park Golf Club. Following a ‘draw’ at last year’s event, both teams were keen to leave victorious in 2019, and assembled a combination of staff, friends and clients to battle it out for the winner’s trophy!
Acorn Group’s CEO, Robert Sargent and Steven Taylor, Judge & Priestley’s Managing Partner, were joined by 80 players from over fifty local businesses. Despite a worrying week of wet weather, the conditions were bright, dry and mild on the day, and after a 1pm shotgun start, both teams tee’d off around the Club’s immaculate West Course.
After a competitive round of golf, players congregated on Sundridge Park’s terrace to enjoy a well-earned beverage and a buffet of glorious food created by club chef Simon Caple. Once everyone had changed, scores had been tallied and evening guests had arrived, the raffle was drawn and awards were presented.
Some very generous prizes were donated to the raffle, most notably an enormous Fortnum & Mason hamper on behalf of T & C Printers and two cases of luxury wine from Natwest. The pairs awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place were won by James Thompson & Alun Williams, Tom Luck & Colin McQueston and Hector Stavrinidis & Danny Smith respectively. Mark Bailey and Lisa Heywood triumphed in the Longest Drive, and James Thompson collected another trophy for winning Nearest The Pin! The overall winners were Acorn, who took home the team trophy with a 12-8 victory and are delighted that the winner’s cup will spend the next year proudly displayed at their Bromley Headquarters.
The most important part of the day was the charity it was all in aid of: St Christopher’s Hospice. Each player donated in order to play and hundreds of raffle tickets were purchased to help total the incredible £4,500 raised. The money will be used to help fund the incredible work undertaken by the local charity who make the lives easier of those with life limiting illnesses.
Robert Sargent said “I’m delighted that the annual golf day was another great success and that we managed to raise money and awareness for a local and worthy cause close to our hearts.” Steve Taylor added “It was a fantastic day; a huge thanks goes to everyone who played and to Sundridge Park for hosting us once again.”
