Golf competition raises £8500 for industry charity

The Furniture Makers’ Company’s longest-running charity event, the National Golf Day, raised £8500. Almost 100 golfers took part in the tournament at the Warwickshire Golf & Country Club in September, making it the best-attended National Golf Day in recent years. 

The day comprised an 18-hole Stableford competition on the Warwickshire’s championship Kings Course, followed by a lunch and raffle, auction and prize giving.

Jonathan Rowe of Bisley won Best Individual and a team comprised of members of The Furniture Makers’ Company putted their way to Best Team. 

The Furniture Makers’ Company is grateful to the companies that sponsored the event – The 3dPartneship, Alstons, Baker Furniture, Bisley, Classic Furniture, G Plan Upholstery, Harrison Spinks, Himolla Polstermoebel, Hippo, HTL (UK), Mammoth, NEJ Stevenson, Parker Knoll, Savoir Beds, Sealy, Steinhoff, Swan Retail and Tempur. 

The company would also like to thank auction prize sponsors Global Furniture Alliance, Graham Marley, Mammoth Beds, Peter Mallinson, Silentnight Beds and Sofa House. 

Hayden Davies, master of The Furniture Makers’ Company, says: “The National Golf Day is always a fantastic event and we were very pleased that 2018 had the highest turnout in recent years. A very well done to all the winners. I’d also like to thank Peter Mallinson for his much-appreciated support in organising the event and making it a huge success.” 

Peter Mallinson, merchandise director (home) of AIS, organiser of the event, says: “It is extremely rewarding to witness the resurgence of the National Golf Day. The support from retailers, manufacturers, importers and wholesalers across the board was excellent and we raised a considerable sum of money. This year’s venue in Warwickshire was well received by a record number of golfers and everyone is looking forward to next year’s event.” 

Next year’s National Golf Day will take place on 26th September 2019 at the Warwickshire Golf Club.
