Tee-rific donation for the Stroke Unit

Generous golfers have raised more than £2,000 to be split between two good causes.

Allen Tomas & Co Financial Management Ltd held its third annual Charity Golf Day to raise money for the Stroke Unit at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Norfolk Hospice.

Teams of golfers enjoyed a Texas Scramble at Heacham Manor on Friday, 14th September.

Event organisers and company directors Ben Allen and Michael Crisp decided to raise money to give something back to the two charities.

They visited the QEH’s West Raynham Ward to present a cheque to Sarah Pease and Caroline Glazebrook.

Mr Allen said: “We had a fantastic day, the weather held and all those who entered enjoyed the golf and the well-deserved hog roast afterwards.

“We are delighted to have raised £2,100 which will be split between the Stroke Unit and the Norfolk Hospice

“We chose these charities based on the experience of family treatment from the QE staff and our recent visit to the Hospice in Hillington, which has cemented our admiration of what has been achieved here during the five years of our ongoing charitable support.”

The event was won by Ward Gethin Arthur solicitors, led by Chris Dewey, who were followed by Home Instead Senior Care, under Tom McEwan, and Ward Gethin Arthur Solicitors second team, with James Macwhirter.

E H Prior & Son vouchers were won by Cliff Kendle, Sally Sketcher, Dave Smith and Steve Leman for their longest drive and nearest the pin success.

Mr Crisp added: “We would like to thank summer intern Molly Sands and employees Chloe Drew and Lisa Perkins for their support along with Heacham Manor.

“We would also like to thank everyone who supported or took part in the event.”
