On Thursday 23rd September Fire Depot took part in the seventh year of the Fire Industry Charity Golf Day at Belton Woods, Grantham and what a great day it was, even the weather held out for us!
For the first time ever Fire Depot entered their own team to play the course – and they ended up winning! Go team!! The team consisted of Sam Barnett from Fire Depot, Jon Hawkins from Red Box Fire Control and John Smeaton from the Fire Protection Association.
The event so far has raised a superb £7,400!! With an equal share of the money raised going to 7 charities chosen by the players: Whizz-Kidz' Prostate Cancer UK, Alzheimer’s Society, Motor Neurone Disease, British Heart Foundation, Macmillan, Help for Heroes and Cancer Research UK.
Fire Depot sponsored the presentation meal, room and a professional photographer who captured the event and we will be creating some souvenirs for all those involved to have as a memory of a great day!
Fire Depot also provided the players with Firechief goody bags including a Firechief stainless steel water bottle, Firechief A6 notepad, Firechief Extinguisher shaped stress ball and lots more!
Secretary of the Fire Industry Golf Society and Event organiser, David Murfitt, expressed how much of a success the day was and gave his thanks to Fire Depot and all the other sponsors and supporters.
Laurie Pollard, Managing Partner commented: ‘We were very excited for this event to go ahead after last years being cancelled and it didn’t disappoint! The day was thoroughly enjoyed and was topped off by being presented with the trophy as winners of the Fire Industry Golf Society 2021 Charity Day Team’!
