Fore! Hundred Pounds Raised For Charity At In Golf Tournament
Independent Network (powered by Veka) has hosted another fantastic golf tournament, giving members the chance to have fun, speak to other like-minded fabricators and installers, catch up with the IN team and raise some money for charity in the process.
Veka Group’s Head of Partner Programmes Karen Lund explains: “Here at Independent Network, we know that meetings don’t need to be held in the board room to be valuable. We encourage all our members to join in with a host of social events that allow them to have fun while learning from each other and the team at the same time. This year’s Golf Tournament was held at Telford Golf and Country Club and followed the theme from our latest Members’ Weekend; celebrating the very ‘Best of British’, which is exactly what our member companies represent with their commitment to quality and service.”
“We welcomed 35 golfers and had a great time, networking, golfing and enjoying a drink or two before the day’s awards presentation. There were seven prizes given out, which were a mix of four coveted accolades and three not so serious awards…‘Best Team’ went to Goliath Homeworld, while Jeremy Proctor from Frames Conservatories Direct was crowned ‘Best Individual’. Jeff Dunn from Glazerite claimed ‘Nearest to Pin’ and Ian Bowman from Northfield Glass impressed us with the day’s ‘Longest Drive’.“Meanwhile, the outfit worn by Turner Windows’ Craig Turner led to him being named ‘Outstanding Golfer’. Steve Cody from Mister Windows took home ‘Best effort’ and Veka’s own Matthew Adaway won the ‘Hole in Ten’ trophy.
“The raffle held on the day raised £425 and will be a welcome boost to the fundraising efforts of three Veka directors who are taking part in the Turf Moor Sleep Out.”
