There were lots of winners at the Trevor Dawson Charity Golf Day. The sun shone and temperatures soared as a full field of 21 corporate teams enjoyed the immaculate course conditions of Clitheroe Golf Club for the Trevor Dawson Charity Golf Day.
Word has just come in that the charity golf day raised over £6,000 for the magnificent Blackburn Youth Zone, which brings the total raised over the years to over £20,000. The Trevor Dawson event raised £5,000 with Jon Alder from Barclays Corporate kindly funding a further £1,000.
Blackburn Youth Zone is a state of the art facility in the heart of Blackburn which provides opportunities for the whole community to support the town’s young people. It is a landmark facility of world-class standard that is part of the regeneration of the town. Trevor Dawson, Chartered Surveyors, who have offices in Blackburn, Burnley and Bolton, staged their fourth golf day in support of this local charity.
The Golf Day comprised 21 teams teeing off together at 12.00 p.m. in a shotgun start after enjoying coffee and bacon butties on arrival. The competition was a four ball Am – Am with a relaxed format of two scores to count. Battling with the very humid conditions the overall winners, with a score of 94 points, were Ludlow Wealth Management, followed by Farleys Solicitors in second place, with Thwaites claiming third place. Another highlight of the day was a hole in one with a 9 iron on the 17th by Paul Thomason in the Culeth Construction team.
The day culminated with a dinner and prize presentation, after enjoying the glorious sunshine, with drinks on the patio overlooking the 18th green.
Caroline James, Managing Director of Trevor Dawson comments, “We are delighted to support Blackburn Youth Zone again and spend time with our clients on such a relaxed and enjoyable occasion. We look forward to staging the day again next year.”
Laura Phelan of the Blackburn Youth Zone concurs," Thank you Trevor Dawson for a wonderful day. The money raised will be used to make sure we can continue to offer world class sports and arts facilities to young people, 365 days a year for just 50p per visit."
