Fraser Dawbarns has successfully held its eleventh annual charity golf day on 9th June 2023 at Tydd St Giles Golf and Country Club.
Supporting the community is of the upmost importance to the firm, and each year they choose a local charity as their ‘charity of the year’ to which they dedicate all their fundraising activity. The firm has seen first-hand the difference that the money they raise can make to these worthwhile causes.
For the second year in a row, Fraser Dawbarns has chosen the Road Victims Trust, a charity dedicated to supporting those who have been affected by road traffic accidents. Iain Grimes, managing partner, comments:
“Not only have the services of the Road Victims Trust helped some members of the Fraser Dawbarns family, but their values align so closely with ours here at the firm. We are so grateful to be in the position to give back to this charity who rely on the generosity of donations.”
Teams played at Tydd St Giles Golf Club for nearly five hours to see who would take home the Fraser Dawbarns trophy.
The cold Easterly wind in the week leading up to the event had most of the County questioning if it was summer. Luckily, the players were greeted with a generous 24 degrees, sunshine and a bacon roll to fuel the 18-hole course.
Neil John, a partner at Fraser Dawbarns, stepped in to play at the last minute and has played an active role in the organisation of the charity golf day since its beginnings:
“The golf day means a great deal to us at Fraser Dawbarns. We’ve held it for the past 11 years and it’s always great to see everyone in high spirits and putting their support behind such important charities.”
After almost five hours from the shotgun start to finish, the teams were welcomed back to the clubhouse with a barbeque before the winners were announced and an auction and raffle took place.
A total of 68 golfers participated across 17 teams to win an array of prizes.
Congratulations to the winners:
Nearest the Pin 16th Hole: Robert Booty
Nearest the Pin 8th Hole: Will Schindler
Longest Drive 13th Hole: Jasper Payne
Following this, the much-anticipated competition winners were announced where the scores were extremely tight.
In third place with a score of 83 points, was Mark Juniper, Paul Edwards, Andrew Russell and Richard Southgate.
In Second Place, with an impressive score of 87, was Gordon Varley, Neil John, Farrukh Bajwa and Tony Bhullar.
In First Place, with a well-deserved score of 93, was Michael Crisp, John Williams, Josh Ring and Jasper Payne.
£150 Prize Draw winner was: Michael Crisp.
To finish the day the charity auction was held, where Alan Faulkner from Maxey Grounds in Wisbech sold items generously donated by local firms and individuals, including:
The firm would like to personally thank Mr Faulkner for giving up his time and for his effortless humour which left a smile on the face of all.
Fraser Dawbarns is proud to announce that the event raised a grand total of £2,493.80 for the Road Victims Trust, which would not have been possible without those who attended.
The team are appreciative of Clair Bradley from the Road Victims Trust who travelled over two hours from Bedford to speak at the event, reinforcing the meaning behind the day.
The firm would also like to extend their thanks to Neil John, who helped organise the event alongside Amy Bathgate and Elise Rose at Fraser Dawbarns.
We look forward to welcoming those to the 2024 charity golf day for another successful year.
