AKW well above par with over £10k Golf Day
Droitwich based AKW are well above par with over £10k Golf Day Fundraising for St Richard’s Hospice
AKW’s annual golf day in aid of St Richard’s Hospice has smashed last year’s total by more than doubling the amount raised. The Droitwich based company who hosted their annual golf day at Gaudet Luce Golf Club on 9th June in aid of St Richard’s Hospice, raised a staggering £10,068.50 supported by 65 guest golfers from AKW’s invited business partners, some of whom travelled from Scotland and Ireland to attend.
AKW, one of Droitwich Spa’s largest employers, hosted this annual event at Gaudet Luce Golf Club which was then followed by an evening dinner, raffle and auction where the prizes were donated by the company themselves, their guests and industry partners.
Commenting on the amount raised, Jayne Sargeant, St Richard’s Hospice’s Community Fundraiser, said, “After the success of last year’s AKW Golf Day, St Richard’s Hospice were delighted to once again be nominated as the beneficiary of AKW’s Golf Day. We were absolutely stunned by the wonderful amount raised by this year’s event and thank AKW and their corporate guests so much for their generosity and support. A donation to the hospice of this size will fund our Day Hospice for a whole week, providing specialist care and support to up to 80 patients.”
Vince Moorton, AKW’s Core National Sales Director added, “At AKW we are immensely proud of the way our business partners supported us with their sponsorship, donations and winning bids at our auction during our Annual Golf Day, culminating in raising these funds for our local chosen charity St Richard's Hospice.”
