Corbel Golf Day 2013

The Corbel Blog

Corbel’s first golf day was held at Hintlesham Hall on Thursday 19th September – in the RAIN!

32 players participated in the day, from businesses across East Anglia, teeing off at 13:00…

Despite the relaxed atmosphere of the event the competition element of the day was naturally present and team and individual trophies were won as follows:

• Winning Team – ‘The Hackers’ consisting of Jonathan Burl (Maritime Transport Limited), Nigel Venables (VPss) and Mike Dube (Thomas Ridley)
• Individual Winner – Bob Baker (Getech)
• Individual 2nd Place – Jonathan Burl (Maritime Transport Limited)
• Individual 3rd Place – Gary Sillet (Barenbrug UK Ltd)
• Nearest-to-the-pin – Jonathan Burl (Maritime Transport Limited)
• Longest Drive – David Holmes (Autism Anglia)

The day concluded with a 3-course meal, a raffle and prize giving ceremony.

The raffle was in aid of three charities which we work closely with (Autism Anglia, Headway Essex and Orwell Mencap) in addition to Macmillan Nurses, in memory of our former colleague Barry Middleton who sadly passed away earlier this year – golf was one of his passions.

A total of £775.00 was raised, which will be divided equally between the charities.

We would like to thank the following:

‒ BT, who kindly part sponsored the day
‒ All attendees that kindly donated raffle prizes
‒ Hintlesham Hall for hosting the event
‒ Everyone that attended for making Corbel’s inaugural Golf Day so memorable and for supporting the charities
