Our annual Golf Day - held in memory of Dick Young - took place at Carlisle Golf Club on Friday where over £1,000 was raised for MIND, the EFL's official charity and Eden Valley Hospice [Jigsaw].
The winners on the day were the Carlisle Glass B team (Dave Rodgers, David Moore, Mark Richardson, Craig Smith) whilst Golf Day sponsors Online Systems (Neil Gallagher, Shaun Bannon, Andrew Kirk, David Thomson) were second. The Solar Maintenance Services team (Jim McLinden, Ian Milburn, John Halpin, Dave Wilkes) were third.
Commercial assistant Katie Mitchell said: "We have to say a big thank you to Andrew Dunning for helping to organise the event and for making sure everything ran smoothly on the day. Thanks also to Alan Irving and Barry Maxey for their support during the event.
"Carlisle Golf Club and their staff are always fantastic and our thanks go to them for allowing us to use their wonderful course and facilities.
"Online Systems were sponsors of the event and also entered two teams which was great to see, with one of the teams just pipped to the trophy by two points!
"We raised money on the day via a raffle, which wouldn't have been possible without extremely kind donations from Thomas Graham, Peter Jackson the Jeweller, Colin Carter, The Black Lion, Liberty Work & Leisure, Graham Lisle and Lloyd Motor Group.
"It was lovely to see Dick's wife Val and daughter Sharon at the event, as they came to present the Dick Young Memorial Trophy to the winners.
"We are really pleased with how the day went, and feedback from all teams and participants has been positive. The weather was perfect and it made for an enjoyable day, which concluded with the presentations and meal in the club house. We hope everyone will be able to join us again next year for an event which is going from strength-to-strength."
