M&N golfers swing into action for WaterAid
Several of M&N’s keenest golfers, alongside VIP guests attended Anglian Water’s annual Golf Day to help raise funds for WaterAid at Belton Woods this summer.
The event, which took place at the stunning course in Grantham on the 27th July, saw the company field two 4 ball teams to play in both Texas Scramble and Stableford competitions throughout the day.
A good mix of handicaps made up each team with Neale Walden and Lee Haugh heading up Teams 1 & 2 respectively.
Despite the weather’s best attempts to put a dampener on the morning session, players thoroughly enjoyed the challenging course assisted by both Malcolm Johnston and Alistair McFarlane who ensured players were suitably refreshed throughout the day.
As sponsors of the ‘Longest Drive’ competition M&N was a highly visible participant in the day which was attended by 112 players, drawn from a variety of water industry associated companies.
The fun didn’t stop when the golf was over either as players came together at a special dinner where, following prize giving presentations, a raffle helped raise additional funds for WaterAid’s great work across the globe.
A impressive £20,270 was raised from the event’s activities and will help WaterAid achieve its aim to ‘ensure a world where everyone, everywhere has safe water, sanitation and hygiene by 2030’.
Feedback from our guests has been extremely positive and it was a pleasure to spend some quality time with individuals from across Anglian Water and United Utilities in a social setting.
Branch Manager for Scotland, Malcolm Johnston had this to say about the event:
“This was a thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile event and M&N were delighted to have played some part in raising much needed funds to support WaterAid’s great work.
I’d like to thank our guests for their entertaining company and for the Anglian Water personnel who brought the whole event together so professionally.”
