• BOSS Charity Golf Day raises £12,000

        • This year’s BOSS Charity Golf Day raised around £12,000 thanks to a new venue, the Belton Woods resort in Lincolnshire, and great support from sponsors and attendees.  

          As many as 24 teams entered the golf competition, while a full complement of attendees also spent the day enjoying the luxurious spa facilities, as well as an inspiring talk by new BOSS CEO Amy Hutchinson on her career so far and the women that have influenced it.

          The day concluded with drinks and a buffet dinner. This year’s golf competition organiser Phil Wesolowski (MD, Staedtler) then explained the thinking behind the day’s new formula, thanked the sponsors and all those involved, and praised the many years of excellent work done on this event by his predecessors Stanley Vaughan and Mike Gowen.

          Event organiser, Charity Chairman Graeme Chapman MBE, then took the microphone for the traditional auction. Phil Wesolowski then presented the prizes for the golf competitions:

          •       Putting Competition: Paul Hardy (Fellowes)

          •       Longest Drive: Richard Hobb (Fellowes)

          •       Nearest The Pin Competition: Steve Manley (Universal Office)

          •       Individual Competition: Dave Bryce (Fellowes, winner); Rob Harradine (Ui-ball, runner up)

          •       Team Competition: Fellowes 1 (winners); Hamelin (runners up)

          •       “Beat The Pro” Competition: 13 golfers managed to beat the club’s professional on hole 11

          •       “Should Have Gone To Specsavers” Award: Hamelin

          Graeme closed the event by thanking its key sponsors (VOW Wholesale, Office Power, Fellowes, and Newell) plus all of the golf hole sponsors and the donators of the splendid prizes.  

          Lastly, he acknowledged all the hard work done by Phil Wesolowski, Liz Whyte, Frances Stephen, Martin Wilde, Sara Bennett, Marie Challis, and Nigel Mitchell, and looked forward to seeing everyone again in 2020.
