The first Vinyl Solutions Golf Day at Crane Valley Golf Club, Verwood, Dorset, took place in a blaze of sunshine on Thursday 11th September with nineteen teams taking part.

All were raising funds for Julia’s House, Dorset and Wiltshire Children’s Hospices. There was the Longest Drive and Charity Challenge competitions on two of the holes which all the golfers took part in, which raised further funds for our Charity of the Year.
