We’re delighted to confirm that BromGolf 2018, our largest fundraising event of the year, has raised an incredible £9,000 for our YouCan Foundation.

It is the fourth year Bromford has match funded ‘£ for £’ the £4,500 net total raised by colleagues and business partners at Shirley Golf Club on 27 September 2018.

Since its first event in 2013, BromGolf has now raised close to £45k for YouCan.

YouCan enables people to bring their ideas to life to help their communities. Every penny raised will now go towards helping customers unlock their potential by giving them the opportunity to bid for grants of up to £300.

Head of business improvement Richard Hicks, who helps to organise the event, said, “Another successful year and we are extremely grateful for the teams from our business partner community, some attending for the first time, along with teams of colleagues, making it a total of 22 teams taking part which exceeds last year. We had some amazing donations and gifted promise items which we were able to raffle and auction to raise extra funds.”

How did the day unfold?
Yet again the golf day basked in brilliant sunshine as everyone gathered early to energise themselves

with a delicious breakfast before heading out. There were teams (four golfers per team) from Bromford Young Boys, Bromford New Homes, Bromford Riverside, Hintons Hot Shots, iTracking, MIS-Active Management Systems, Jewson, Novus, Stafford Industrial Supplies, Gilmore Building Supplies, ADEY Innovation Ltd, Valliant, David Wilson Homes, Worcester Bosch, City Electrical Factors, Myson Radiators, Stelrad, Fernox, Western Property Services, Travis Perkins, Team Hewer and J Tomlinson.

After a light lunch, the agenda of the day moved on to some more fundraising activities. As a result of kind donations by our business partners there were some great items to auction and raffle and, along with the putting competition, which raised a further £1,290 on the day.

The winning business partner team was Rettig Myson, with Bromford New Homes winning the battle of the Bromford colleagues.

All in all a great day was had by all.
