Charity Golf Day Raises Over £3,000

All in support of the Great Western Air Ambulance

Grosvenor Consultancy Limited, a firm of Independent Financial Advisers, held their annual Golf Day on Tuesday 15th September 2015 and for first time it was to raise funds for the Great Western Air Ambulance (GWAAC). It took place at the beautiful Wrag Barn Golf Club in Highworth, a fitting location made even better by a day filled with autumn sunshine.

9 teams consisting of clients, fund manager sponsors, local businesses and staff competed and the standard of golf was excellent. After a closely fought contest, the winning team this year, captained by Grosvenor’s Jon James, was Mark Keenan, Greg Callard and Nick Watson finishing with a total of 104 points. The team finishing in second with 95 points, captained by Grosvenor’s Ian Young was Hemant Patel, Bob Burley and Greg Myho.

Bob Burley comments “it was a pleasure to take part in such a great day, it was a shame my team just missed out on winning but the most important thing was that we managed to raise such a great amount of money for a very worthy charity.

The Great Western Air Ambulance is one of a very few air ambulances who work to the “gold standard” Critical Care Model, which means rushing a Critical Care Paramedic and Critical Care Doctor (the majority of which are volunteers) to the scene. Essentially they are a flying Accident and Emergency Department, using advanced drugs and medical equipment at the scene to ensure the patient receives the best possible pre-hospital care. In order to keep the Charity flying, contributions and fundraising events are vital.

Ian Young comments, “ What a wonderful day! We want to thank everyone who took part and for helping make it such a memorable day, special thanks must go to Jupiter, Henderson and Hartwood for their sponsorship of the event. Also a big thank you to Tracey Lee from Wrag Barn for organising the day and for helping to make it such a success.

We look forward to planning future events to help raise further funds for this worthwhile cause.”
