Winners at our Golf Day 2021 were PIB Insurance brokers – although Barnsley Hospice were the real winners as thousands of pounds was raised for our charity.
Our Annual Golf Day, kindly sponsored by Lifetime, took place on Friday 14th at Silkstone Golf Club. The 21 teams who took part helped to raise a phenomenal £7,000 for the hospice, which goes a long way to securing the future of our services.
Despite Covid restrictions, a great day was had by all and the sun shone. As a hospice, many of our fundraising events have been cancelled or changed significantly over the past year, so the support of this event was appreciated more than ever.
We can now announce the all-important competition winners!
In third place was Team Promethean, who are long-standing supporters of the hospice golf day, and this is their first year in top three. Jim Cooper, lead player, says: “Barnsley Hospice is a charity that does an enormous amount of good in the area. The brilliant golf event they host is a great opportunity for Promethean to support this local charity as well as an enjoyable day to host and entertain my clients. I look forward to supporting the event next year and for many years to come in the future.”
Smart Interiors were awarded second place, for the second year in a row! Ian Rimmington, lead player of the team said he was extremely happy to be runner-up.
In first place was PIB Insurance, who finally pipped the other teams to the post in their 7th year of attending the event. Community Fundraiser, Ella Beale, recently visited the PIB Insurance offices, to award David Munn with the team’s trophy and prize (pictured one news front page).
David Munn said “We always have a great time at the Barnsley Hospice, and this year was no exception! We are so pleased to finally be bringing the winner’s trophy back to the office, and we look forward to next year.”
Congratulations to our winners, and a huge thank you to all 21 teams who supported the event. We would like to say a special thanks to our wonderful sponsors, Lifetime (pictured above) and our hosts at Silkstone Golf Club. See you next year!
