Bidvest Golf Day Raises £10,000 For The Foundation
Bidvest Food Services’ Annual Golf Day in aid of Newcastle United Foundation, which was held at Ramside Hall yesterday, has been dubbed a huge success after raising over £10,000 for the charity.
Teams at the golf day were joined by Patron Bob Moncur and his legends team.
Prizes were presented to the winning teams from both courses, with chartered accountants Haines Watts taking top place on the Cathedral course and Roseberry Leisure victorious on the Prince Bishops leaderboard.
Following presentations and evening meal the attendees were given the opportunity to bid on exclusive silent auction prizes, with four places in the Chairman’s Suite at St James Park for the Rugby World Cup fixture between New Zealand and Tonga the top sale of the night, raising £1300.
Norman Weymss, MD North East of Bidvest Food Services, said: “We’re longstanding partners of Newcastle United Foundation and we’re delighted that the golf day has raised so much. It’s been great to see so many businesses here today showing their support.”
Newcastle United Foundation Development Manager, Sarah Medcalf, added: “We’re so grateful to everyone that has taken a team, offered, or bid for, a prize and given their time to attend today. All of the funds raised will be invested in delivering programmes in our local community, which make a difference to the lives of over 50,000 every year.”
