The Procurement Partnership LTD (TPPL) invited suppliers and customers to join it at the Woburn Golf Club in Bedfordshire. The actual Course played was the Dukes Course, designed by Charles Lawrie, established in 1976 and the first of Woburn’s three courses to be opened. The participants not only enjoyed playing the 6,971 Yards and 18 holes, but happily engaged in doing so, in the knowledge that their efforts would raise funds for a worthwhile cause – Maggie’s Cambridge.
The Maggie’s Centre (registered charity: SC024414) provides free practical, emotional and psychological support to people with cancer, their family and friends, from diagnosis throughout living with the affects after cancer. It helps over 8,000 people a year to achieve the best possible state of psychological and physical health during diagnosis, treatment and throughout their cancer journey. People across Cambridgeshire and East Anglia come to Maggie’s at any stage, for as long or as little as they like.
The day incorporated a beat the professional ‘charity’ hole, with funds raised for Maggie’s by all players paying to play and any players landing closer to the pin than ex-professional golfer, Steve Cipa, on the famous signature 3rd hole, winning a sleeve of Srixon balls and entering into a draw for a prize, which was won by one lucky golfer. The event was attended by 36 guests and 12 professional/coaching female golfers, one guest commented; “It was a proper treat! Very well organised and the whole day matched the weather – quality! Really enjoyed the format and the hospitality was first class.” Other prizes were on offer throughout the day, including the chance to win a Ford Ranger pickup truck, sponsored by Motus Group, for anyone scoring a hole in one on the 9th hole.
As with previous golf days organised by TPPL, the day was coordinated and hosted by Andrew Murray; Founder & Managing Director of Andrew Murray Golf, specialists in organising and hosting premiere corporate golf events.
The total amount raised by TPPL and the golf day was over £2,500.
James Brennan, Managing Director of TPPL said: “we are delighted to support such a worthwhile Charity in Maggie’s, who are supporting members of my family, in addition to families up and down the Country, currently affected by Cancer. I would like to personally thank every guest for their kind pledges. I’m delighted with the amount we raised on the day, which makes the whole event worthwhile”.
