Droitwich Editorial 23rd Nov, 2019

MORE than £1,200 was raised for Sight Concern at a charity golf day at the Gaudet Luce club in Droitwich, writes John Tait.

The event was organised by Thursfields Solicitors and 18 local businesses took part.

The winning team featured Rich Nicol, who founded the RE Group, Matt Nicol, managing director of Nicol and Co estate agents, Phil Smith from mio, part of tmgroup, and Charles Heaven, managing director at Crown Estate Agents.

Among the other teams were Nat West Bank, Prosperity Wealth, GJS Dillon, Fisher German, Handelsbanken, CVR Global, Harben Barker and Crowe.

Competitions included nearest the pin and a blindfolded contest, in keeping with the chosen charity.

The cash was raised from ticket sales and a raffle with prizes donated by Brockencote Hall Hotel, West Midlands Safari Park, Severn Valley Railway, Worcester Warriors, Churchfields and Stripes.

Nick O’Hara, Thursfields managing director, thanked everyone involved, including the organisations which donated raffle prizes.

He said: “This was a fantastic event with scores of local business people taking part on what was a bracing but dry day.”

Attendees heard a talk from Shirley Sheridan, a trustee of Sight Concern.

She spoke about her experience of becoming blind later in life and the support she had received from the charity.

“Everyone at Sight Concern Worcestershire is so grateful for all the wonderful support given to us by Thursfields throughout this year.”
