Palladium Building Supplies held its annual charity golf day last week (23rd July) with its charity auction raising more than £3000 with tickets to see Manchester United up for grabs.
Taking place at Bigbury Golf Club, South Devon, a total of 80 golfers, customers from its Kingsbridge and Plymouth branches took part along with suppliers in almost perfect weather.
The day started with the club professional organising a putting competition which tested control and accuracy. All the teams of four golfers were at their starting pins ready for a 1pm start with several in play competitions which included closes ball to the pin, the longest and straightest drive, most tries to get out of a sand bunker and strangest shot.
The day continued with a charity action with prizes donated by the merchant’s suppliers, which included golf days at Bristol and Kendalshire, a box at Old Trafford to watch a Manchester United home game, a malt whiskey hamper, wide screen television and many more prizes.
The charity auction raised over £3,200 for the Devon Air Ambulance and a golf charity supported by Bigbury Golf Club.
