Celebrations all round at charity golf day
The sun came out the moment the claxon sounded and a full field of 20 corporate teams enjoyed the immaculate course conditions of Clitheroe Golf Club for the Trevor Dawson Charity Golf Day in aid of the superb Blackburn Youth Zone. There were further celebrations as Trevor Dawson acknowledged their 30th Anniversary.
Word has just come in that the charity golf day raised over £6,000 for the magnificent Blackburn Youth Zone, which brings the total over the years to over £30,000 raised. The Trevor Dawson event raised £5,000 with Jon Alder from Barclays Corporate kindly funding a further £1,000.
Blackburn Youth Zone is a state-of-the-art facility in the heart of Blackburn which provides opportunities for the whole community to support the town’s young people. It is a landmark facility of world-class standard that is part of the regeneration of the town. Trevor Dawson Chartered Surveyors, who have offices in Blackburn, Burnley and Bolton, staged their sixth golf day in support of this local charity. The guests were moved by a wonderful speech given by Youth Zone member Ben who has achieved great confidence and enjoyed countless opportunities there.
The Golf Day comprised 20 teams teeing off together at 12.00pm in a shotgun start after enjoying coffee and bacon butties on arrival. The competition was a four ball Am – Am with a relaxed format of two scores to count on each hole. The overall winners and two runners up all had the same score of 87 points so it came to a card play-off giving Alexander Grace the lead, followed by Lancashire Business View team in second and Blackburn Chemicals claiming third place. The day culminated with a dinner and prize presentation and drinks on the patio in the sunshine overlooking the 18th green.
Caroline James, managing director of Trevor Dawson commented: “We are delighted to support Blackburn Youth Zone again and spend time with our clients on such a relaxed and enjoyable occasion. We look forward to staging the day again next year.”
Melanie of the Blackburn Youth Zone concurred: "Thank you Trevor Dawson for a wonderful day. The money raised will be used to make sure we can continue to offer world class sports and arts facilities to young people, 365 days a year for just 50p per visit."
