Kersia Golf Day Raises over £600 For Macmillan Cancer Support

The sun shone for the whole of the Kersia Golf Day which took place last Thursday at the Marriott Worsley Park Country Club.  A great day was had by all, and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part and enjoyed the day.  The event included a great round of golf as well as an ice cream along the course, evening BBQ, and prize giving presentation.

There were various mini competitions during the day including the Marshmallow Challenge for Macmillan Cancer Support. Every golfer donated £10 to take part in the Challenge and all proceeds will be donated to the charity which is being supported by 2 Sisters Food Group’s Gordon Wiper who completed the longest day golf challenge of 72 holes on 19th June. The challenge involved each golfer attempting to hit a marshmallow in two shots and get nearest to the pin to win a bottle of Champagne and a round of golf for four people in Cumbria. This challenge was won by Lewis Ferguson from Nexus Packaging who managed to get his marshmallow in the hole. In total over £600 was raised for this great cause.

The Overall Best Performer on the golf course was Sat Hanspal from Finsbury Group with 45 points.  The Best Kersia Performer was Brian Ireland who won the prestigious Steve Bell trophy with 40 points.
