The sun came out on the first day of October, for our second Sporting Minds UK Charity Golf Day. The stunning The Astbury Golf Course near Bridgnorth, Shropshire, provided an excellent venue, where 20 teams made up of 80 players thoroughly enjoyed the day and in the process raised a fantastic £2,500 for the charity. The Contact Business Finance team from Wolverhampton were the team of the day taking first prize.
Our next fundraising event is on the evening of Wednesday 13th October, kindly organised and hosted by Blackthorns Chartered Accountants, for whom we are charity of the year. The in person quiz night is being held at Wombourne Civic Centre from 7pm and costs £80 per team of four. Please contact email@example.com for more information and to book in.
