A fantastic day for a game of golf saw 19 teams tee off at the prestigious Warwickshire Golf and Country Club and go head-to-head in the Loveitts Estate Agents annual golf day to raise much needed funding for Zoe’s Place.
This is the fourth year members of staff and associates of Loveitts have stepped onto the green, clubs in hand, to raise money for the Coventry based baby’s hospice.
Throughout its association with Zoe’s Place, Loveitts’ annual golf day has been successful in raising over ten thousand pounds for the children’s charity over the past 3 years that is crucial for providing palliative, respite and end of life care to babies and infants aged from birth to 5 years suffering from life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.
The results of the golf day saw PJ Flooring come out on top scoring 98 points, Cocks Lloyd Solicitors in second place with 91 points, and Ollis and Co Accountants following closely behind in third place with 88 points.
Whilst champions PJ Flooring came away with a trophy and top-of-the-range golf equipment, all participants were winners on the day as around £4,000 was raised for Zoe’s Place.
This figure eclipses last year’s total raised for the children’s hospice that reached £3,500.
Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice is the Midlands’ only dedicated facility for babies and young children up to the age of five and is faced with the ongoing challenge of raising £1.3 million per year to keep its doors open 24/7.
Paul Barnes, Director at Loveitts commented: “Once again Loveitts has hosted a hugely successful golf day that has seen thousands raised for a worthy cause close to all of our hearts.
“It was a fantastic day for a game of golf with the weather holding up well from the 1st to the 18th hole making the experience thoroughly enjoyable for all 19 teams
It’s a massive achievement by everyone that took part to raise £4,000 for Zoe’s Place and beat last year’s total. Charity days such as the annual Loveitts Golf Day help this incredible facility continue to provide its vital service to so many families across the region.
“We wish to pass on our thanks to everyone that took part in a great day of golf, everyone played incredibly well and had a lot of fun raising money for a great cause.”
On Saturday 19th October, our very own John Pugh completed the fourth leg of his “Run My Lifetime Challenge” at the 10k event at Sutton Park. John did so well over the 10k run despite unfortunately being without his trusty cheerleader. “Congratulations once again on a great run John, inspiring work!”
