A charity golf day has raised more than £750 in aid of the JSPCA.
The event, which was organised and funded by local leading trust company Hawksford, took place on Friday 4th October at Les Ormes Golf Club.
Players from Hawksford and the local business community made up six teams taking part in a Texas Scramble style competition across a challenging nine-hole course. Other organisations taking part included Ernst & Young, Collas Crill, Carey Olsen, RBS International, Schroders, Pinel Advocates and the JSPCA, which teamed up with Hawksford. Each participating team donated a minimum of £100 to the JSPCA as an entry fee.
The teams comprised players with multiple skill levels, and the competition ended with two joint winners: Ernst & Young and one of the Hawksford/JSPCA teams, both scoring -1 overall. Prizes were also awarded to Chris Matthews from Ernst & Young, who had the closest distance to the pin, and Gary Philpott from Carey Olsen, who achieved the longest drive of the afternoon.
Hawksford chief executive, Peter Murley, said: ‘We are pleased to continue our support of the JSPCA. It is important to raise awareness of the association’s great work and contribute towards its on-going efforts to help and rehome animals in Jersey. Thanks to all the teams that participated and made it such an enjoyable experience for all involved.’
As part of its on-going support, Hawksford has sponsored the JSPCA this year and employees will provide extra support at the charity’s Open Day in October.
