The 2019 event was held at the Draycote Hotel and Whitefields Golf Club on Thursday May 23 and welcomed over 70 heating and plumbing industry professionals. Over the last 10 years, the Fernox charity golf days have raised an impressive £93,212 in donations.
Fernox split the £5,000 raised at this year’s event between two charities, Shooting Star Chase and Combat Stress.
Shooting Star Chase cares for 700 babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions living in London and Surrey. The charity offers a range of therapies, specialist nursing and respite care as well as support groups for the children and their families.
Combat Stress provides mental health therapies, rehabilitation help and support for former servicemen and women dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. It provides residential and day care provision via its specialist centres, together with telephone and online services to reach and help the maximum number of ex-military personnel.
Carl Allinson, UK and Ireland sales director at Fernox, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to all of this year’s attendees. Since the first Fernox Charity Golf Day in 2009, we have raised an incredible £93,212 – a figure that we know has made a significant contribution helping to fund the valuable work of the charities we have supported over the years.
“Across the day, we hosted a number of mini challenges and competitions for attendees. We would like to congratulate this year’s winners, Mark Currie, Kyle Grocott and Carl Allinson who ‘Beat the Pro’ at the 16th hole. We would also like to say well done to the 2019 team competition winners, H&V and Bell Plumbing. The Fernox Golf day has become an occasion in the industry calendar and we’re looking forward to hosting next year’s event.”
