Taylor Made’s Annual Pro-Celebrity Charity Golf and Gala Dinner raises £32,500 for local charity.
After months of planning the inaugural Taylor Made Computer Solutions Golf and Gala dinner took place at the weekend and raised tens of thousands for Wessex Heartbeat.
More than 220 people attended the event, with some picking up their clubs for the 18 hole tournament and others joining for the evening’s gala dinner. Those who took part had the opportunity to rub shoulders with some well-known celebrities. Among those to tread the green was Shaun Udal, former British Cricketer and Jason Dodd, former Southampton footballer.
Nigel Taylor, managing director of Taylor Made Computer Solutions, said: “We were ambitious from the outset with how much we wanted to raise for Wessex Heartbeat but even we were surprised at the grand total. A huge thanks goes to everyone who attended and dug deep so generously for this fantastic cause. We’ve certainly set the bar high in the first year!”
John Munro, chief executive of Wessex Heartbeat, added: “The amount raised is truly staggering and we’re thankful to Taylor Made Computer Solution for putting on such a great event. We have no doubt this is going to turn into a firm favourite in Hampshire’s golfing calendar.”
Wessex Heartbeat provides support to the babies, children, adults and their loved ones treated at the Wessex Cardiac Centre at Southampton General Hospital. It has raised more than £13m since its inception in 1992.
