Fairway to Heaven– golf day benefits key workers’ charity

Coolair Equipment, the air conditioning specialist, has raised more than £2,500 for frontline key workers at its annual ‘Nick Parker’ Golf Day.

The event, which took place at Mere Golf Resort & Spa almost two months after originally scheduled, saw tournament winners receive accolades but no prizes. Instead, money usually spent on prizes was donated to The Care Workers’ Charity which provides support and guidance to those working in the care sector and whose dedication has been so vital over these past few challenging months.

Coolair’s annual golf day has been a firm fixture in the Coolair calendar since 1986 and was due to be one of the highlights of the firm’s 40th anniversary celebrations.

However, the impact of the global pandemic forced the event to be postponed.

But thanks to the combined efforts of Coolair and Mere Golf Resort & Spa in making the event COVID-19 safe, 70 Coolair clients and company representatives were able to take to the course for a relaxing, informal round of golf followed by a celebratory barbecue.

Neil Gibbard, managing director of Coolair Equipment, said: “I am thrilled we were eventually able to host our annual Nick Parker Golf Day.

“While it might not have been the big event we had originally planned, it was a very enjoyable day and gave Coolair staff the chance to reconnect with the clients who have continued to support us.”

The event, which looked a little different to previous golf days due to additional health and safety considerations, saw players enjoy a hot bacon roll before the shotgun start at 1pm.

Lunch and refreshments were served on the course and a barbecue on the terrace brought proceedings to a close.

The event was organised by Coolair’s Paul Evans, a senior sales and sesign sngineer. He said “We have worked with Mere Golf and Spa for many years now and the whole team who looked after us have excelled themselves.

“Due to changing government guidelines the event had to be pulled together at very short notice and every possible effort was made to ensure that everyone attending was safe and comfortable.”

Helen Sharratt, Coolair’s finance director, said: “This year more than ever, we wanted our annual golf day to be a huge celebration of our fantastic staff and clients.

“To say our 40th year has been the strangest to date would be an understatement. However, we want to try to restore some normality and reconnecting with our clients is paramount.”
