In February 2019, we started to organise a Charity Golf Day on behalf of our client, RAK Ceramics.
With the venue chosen and the date set for 25th July 2019 at The Warwickshire Golf Club, we set about designing and producing the invitation, and our client provided the guest list. As a proactive Company, we called each invitee to ensure that they had received the invitation and whether they would be able to support RAK Ceramics in their quest to not only raise funds for their chosen charity, Rowans Hospice but to put on a fantastic day of golf, camaraderie and fun.
With the team sheet full and all holes sponsored, we could move on to designing and producing the programme for the day. We obtained auction prizes, had golf balls printed with the RAK Ceramics logo for the Beat the Pro competition, fabulous hampers were to be the prizes for the tile wall, an award-winning putter and driver were bought for the £5 and £10 bucket competition, and a beautiful Claret Jug trophy for the winning team.
This was the RAK Ceramics Inaugural Golf Day in memory of Alan Abrams, a well known and much-loved character in the bathroom industry who sadly passed away on his birthday in April 2019. His family not only donated a fabulous auction prize of a week in Portugal in a beautiful villa but also attended the dinner in the evening.
The representative of Rowans Hospice, Gemma Carden, talked about the work the Hospice does, which was timed to perfection, just before the auction began in the evening. We are so proud that we raised a fantastic sum of £17,246.34 on the day towards their Silver Jubilee Appeal.
The weather was kind, if a little hot, the Trident staff were on hand to ensure the day ran smoothly and everyone had a fabulous time! We are looking forward to helping RAK Ceramics grow this wonderful event next year – the date has already been set for 23rd July 2020 – we cannot wait to get started!
