On a very wet Friday 23rd September, Seaford Chamber hosted its annual Charity Golf Day at Seaford Head Golf Club. The weather was so awful on the day that the golfers were rained off for the first time ever! Some of the 13 teams who took part only made it to the 4th hole, others made it to the 9th – it was therefore not possible to run the competition for Nearest to the Pin or Longest Drive as we have done in other years.
David Jordan ran the auction again which was a huge success raising £935 – the highest sale Auction prizes were generously donated by Russell Clarke of Cloud Voice & Data and Richard Light of Fundraising Auctions. S R Davis and ELS Electrics provided the drinks and snacks. Our very grateful thanks to everyone who sponsored a hole and to all raffle and auction prizes so kindly donated.
The Chamber presented a cheque in the sum of £4,000 at the November breakfast meeting on Thursday 3 November to The Youth Counselling Project who were the chosen beneficiaries for this year’s event. All funds were raised via sponsorship, raffle and auction following dinner.
Seaford Chamber is extremely grateful for the support of its major sponsors:
- Cloud Voice & Data
- Brooklyn Hyundai
- NB Constructions
Due to the terrible weather, the teams were scored from the first 6 holes:
Winners of the Chamber Cup: S R Davis and Sons (they were last years’ runners up)
Runners up: Brooklyn Hyundai (Gerri Ori)
Third Place: Newhaven Enterprises (Chris Smith)
The competition will be back next year (in the hope of better weather) – for more information, contact the Chamber Secretary.
