TORISHIMA (Europe) Projects Ltd’s inaugural Charity Golf Day supporting Macmillan Cancer Support took place at Cumberwell Park Golf Club, in Bradford on Avon, last month.
Staff and clients of the engineering firm, based at Hartham Park, near Corsham, were joined by special guests, Bath Rugby star and former South Africa international Michael Claassens, and the Premiership club’s head performance analyst Aled Griffiths.
There were 37 golfers who took part in the event’s Stableford competition over 18 holes, with Barry Oliver of Imtech Process posting the best individual score at six under par.
Steve Retford, Torishima (Europe) Projects managing director, said: “My golf may not have been up to scratch on the day but a good time seemed to be had by all. “Most importantly, everyone chipped in with generous financial contributions to help Macmillan Cancer Support, which is a very worthy cause.”
A three-course lunch and a charity raffle followed the golf, which helped raise £1,321.37 for the charity.
Daniel McNally, fundraising manager for Macmillan in Wiltshire, said: “We are thrilled with the amount raised today by Torishima, which will ensure Macmillan can continue to be in the people’s corner, supporting them every step of the way.”
