S&G RESPONSE celebrated its 10th anniversary by raising £15,000 for the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust at a charity golf day.

On August 29, 10 years from when S&G Response was founded, a team of employees and support workers from CAFT awaited the arrival of 100 industry professionals at Mottram Hall golf course.

Donations poured in from the offset, beginning with players buying balloon mulligans, allowing players up to three ‘do-overs’ if they hit a few bad shots.

The day was packed full of entertainment and golf competitions, some with a special twist.

For a game in jest named Stoney Henge players attempted to lob a ball over an eight-foot cardboard cut-out of S&G Response’s finance director, Nick Stone.

All players made a donation to take part in the competitions, with the speed challenge being by far the funniest for onlookers, with players rushing to buggies while some were sprinting from ball to ball to figure out which belonged to them before taking their next shot.

Once evening began there were trophies and champagne awarded to the more talented players of the day.

Next up, the charity auction, which included great prizes and bids for which quickly saw the £10,000 target beaten. The night finished with entertainment from singer Matt Shaw.

S&G Response commercial director, Dan Chesney, said: ‘We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the business’ 10th anniversary than to host a golf day for our valued clients, industry friends and partners whilst simultaneously raising funds for such a wonderful, heart-warming cause.

“After returning to our office we were eager to count up the funds raised from the day and to our delight the amount totalled £15,000, far more than our target.”

CAFT CEO Ian Eccles said: “We’re over the moon to see the Golf Day raised a phenomenal £15,000.

“This amazing amount will have a huge impact on the lives of ill, disabled and disadvantaged children from our region who will now have the opportunity to enjoy a holiday at the Adventure Farm.

“We can’t thank everyone enough for their hard work and generosity.”
