Tree of Hope’s golf day helps to raise £2,000

Six teams took part, including corporate supporters Thomson Snell & Passmore, ID&C, P2 Consulting and Neptune of Tonbridge.

After a day of fierce competition and intense heat in Sevenoaks, Neptune’s James Buck, Mark Crichton, Stephen Humphrey and Mark Barnett were the overall winners.

They received a trophy and a limited-edition print of Knole Park golf course painted by Graeme Lothian, a former paratrooper and war artist from Tunbridge Wells who was shot by a Taliban sniper in Afghanistan.

Mark Till of P2 consulting won the putting competition, Dan Batchelor from the TSP team won the longest drive, and Mark Connelly of the P2 team was nearest the pin.

The Tonbridge charity offers help and support to families of sick and disabled children in the UK who need specialist surgery, treatment and therapy that is not freely available through the UK healthcare system.

Gill Gibb, Tree of Hope’s Chief Executive, said: “I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part in our annual golf day and made it such a success.

“It was a fabulous day and everyone was in high spirits. There was some great golf played and there were some fabulous prizes, including a silent auction which raised £2,000 for the charity.”
