Vinyl Solutions Charity Golf Day Raises in excess of £2,200 for Julia’s House

  • On 06/10/2021

The 2nd Annual Vinyl Solutions Golf Day took place on 28th September, this year at Broadstone Golf Club, Dorset, and despite challenging weather conditions – great fun was had by all teams taking part.

The aim for the event was to raise funds for Julia’s House, Dorset and Wiltshire Children’s Hospices. There was the ‘Longest Drive’ and ‘Nearest the Pin’ competitions on two of the holes (with prizes kindly donated by Leisuredays) which all the golfers took part in, raising further funds for our Charity of the Year. 

At the close of the event, we also held a prize raffle which featured some fantastic prizes kindly donated from various organisations across the region including Goodwood, Rick Stein Sandbanks, The Lime Wood Hotel, Ashley Wood Golf Club and Broadstone Golf Club. We also held a special charity auction, for an amazing Helicopter Sightseeing Tour kindly donated by Bliss Aviation.

We’re delighted to confirm, the total money donated to Julia’s House from the Golf Day was over £2,200 – thank you to everyone for your participation and donations.

Congratulations to the winners on the day:
