£13,770 raised for charity at Bericote and Tritax IAS golf day


We are delighted to announce that a total of £13,770 was raised from the sixth Bericote and Tritax IAS National James Swallow Memorial Charity Golf day at The Grove, which will be divided equally between the two charities; Safeline and Baton of Hope.


Simon Spencer (Director – Bericote) and Bjorn Hobart (Partner – Tritax Management LLP) welcomed everyone to the club and mentioned how delighted both Bericote and Tritax were to be supporting the day again, with a record number of golfers attending at 100.


Following some breakfast in the Players Lounge and an explanation on the format of the day, which was a 4BBB stableford, players headed out to the driving range and putting facilities to hone their skills. Despite the forecast suggesting rain for most of the day, the weather decided to behave and dry conditions prevailed and at 11.30am the shotgun golf day began.


The tricky par 3 hole at the 4th was nominated as the charity hole where players had to delve into their wallets for every shot that ended up in the water. Piers Ridout (Bericote) and Mark Ferguson (Tritax) made sure that all fines were noted down and both took on the task with relish. Payment of fines were collected during dinner which Charlie Withers (Tritax) adjudicated – no one escaped!


After a very enjoyable afternoons golf, players headed back to the Stable Courtyard for a well-earned drink, prize giving and a BBQ. On behalf of the IAS, Daniel Harness, IAS Chair thanked Bericote and Tritax for their kind support of what is an incredibly popular event and thanked the golf club for putting on such a great day on a great golf course in such excellent condition.


Dan then handed over to Chris Jee who announced the results of the day and Simon Spencer and Bjorn Hobart handed out the prizes.
