The annual Ipswich Building Society golf day, in partnership with Suffolk Institute of Directors, raised £4,000 on Tuesday for Cancer Campaign in Suffolk, a local charity where every penny of the money raised stays within the county.
Held at Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf and Spa the event was attended by 70 golfers with teams including Willis, Larking Gowen, Ensors and DFDS Seaways. The overall winners were announced as Corporate Mailing Solutions, based in Great Dunmow. Ian Haughton, Managing Director, commented "when we heard about the vital work carried out by Cancer Campaign in Suffolk we were keen to be involved with the golf day. We thoroughly enjoyed our day at Stoke by Nayland's beautiful Gainsborough Course and to go home as the winning team was a welcome bonus."
The day concluded with a BBQ and charity raffle. Paul Winter, Chief Executive of Ipswich Building Society said "I am delighted that our 4th annual charity golf day has been such a success and would like to thank each of our players, sponsors and supporters, not forgetting the team at Stoke by Nayland for their wonderful hospitality and first class facilities".
Karen Hare, Chief Executive of Cancer Campaign in Suffolk, added "It was such a great day, we were blessed with terrific weather and everyone had such fun. We would like to thank Ipswich Building Society, Suffolk IoD and all of the golfers for their support. As we are funded entirely by voluntary donations, events like this make a huge difference not only financially but also help us to communicate what we do to a wider audience."
