EBC Group Goes A Fairway For MAAC

The team at EBC Group hosted a fabulous corporate golf day for the charity, and with 76 competitors taking part, a staggering £6,000 was raised for the service. The event, which took place at Blackwell Golf Club, started off slightly differently to your average golf day, as everyone took part in a warm up exercise routine led by physio and keen golfer John Price. Once everyone had limbered up they took to the course for a friendly, yet competitive 18 hole round.

One lucky golfer, Keith Yates from Lumsdons Solicitors, achieved his first ever hole in one on the tenth and to celebrate he bought all the competitors a glass of champagne and donated part of his prize money to MAAC.

Sarah Arnold, commented: “This really was a golf day with the difference, from the exercise routine and Keith’s hole in one early in the day, right through to the dinner, prize giving and auction, everyone had a terrific time. We raised an incredible amount for the service and I’d like to thank those who took part and our corporate supporters, EBC Group, for organising such a wonderful day.”
