At the start of April, Secura entered an ‘elite’ team into a four-ball charity golf competition at Brocket Hall in aid of The Children Are Butterflies charity.
This is a fantastic event (at a fantastic course) to raise money for a really worthy charity and so we were delighted to be invited along to take part in the day.
The day is organised and run by Brocket Hall Estate Sales Manager, Ryan Grigg, who is closely involved with fundraising for the Children Are Butterflies charity.
Brocket Hall has two championship golf courses, first-class practice facilities in the form of the Palmerston Golf Academy and a luxury clubhouse, making it one of the UK’s most exclusive golf venues.
The weather was on its best behaviour on the day, with bright, warm sunshine and after a fortifying breakfast, the competitors headed out for a great day of fun but competitive golf in their four-ball teams.
Upholding the honour of Secura for the day were CFO, Eddie Beaton, Operations Manager, John – Big Drive – Biswell, along with Hywel Evans and Richard Dunn from Causeway who had been drafted in to add some additional finesse to the team.
The team had a brilliant day, however, despite some promising play and thinking they were in with a chance after the front nine, they faded slightly and ended the round with a respectable mid-leaderboard finish. Well done team!
Back in the clubhouse, Brocket Hall fed the hungry golfers a delicious dinner to discuss the day’s golfing triumphs and disasters, followed by a charity auction and raffle to help raise some much-needed funds for the charity.
Children Are Butterflies, based in Northampton, provides support and assistance to bereaved families who have lost a child of any age, and the incredible £17,000 raised from the golf day will be donated towards this very worthy cause.
If you would like to find out more about the Children Are Butterflies charity or make a donation, please visit their fundraising page. All donations would be greatly appreciated and help towards making a real difference to bereaved families’ lives.
Finally, a big thank you to Ryan and everyone at Brocket Hall for organising the event and inviting us along, as well as to our honorary members Richard and Hywel from Causeway, who helped team Secura acquit themselves so admirably on the day.
Sally is the marketing manager at Secura and makes sure all our events and campaigns run along just tickety-boo.
