Southam company's golf day scores hole in one for charity

Leamington Editorial 30th Jul, 2023   0

A CHARITY golf day organised by a Southam company proved the par-fect way to raise cash for serving and veteran soldiers.

More than 90 people got into the swing of things for a good cause at The Wigley Group’s Golf Day and Gala Dinner, which was held at The Belfry Hotel and Resort, near Sutton Coldfield.

Famous faces from the world of sport and business professionals from across the region were among the 25 teams who took part on the renowned PGA National Course.

The golf was followed by evening entertainment from comic Bobby Davro, live music from Boogie Street, a gala dinner, a raffle, and a charity auction of sporting memorabilia and experiences, with the event raising a total of £20,262.

The cash will go to The Wigley Support Fund (WSF) – an initiative launched by The Wigley Group with the official Parachute Regiment charity, Support Our Paras, to help injured, serving and veteran soldiers transition from military to civilian life.

The Wigley Support Fund Chairman Robert Wigley said: “Since the very first event in 2013, our golf day has now raised more than £160,000 for Support our Paras, which is a phenomenal achievement.

“None of this is possible without the backing of our supporters and sponsors, so I would like to personally thank everyone for their generous contributions to help make our 10th anniversary event such a success.”
