Weston Homes scores hole-in-one at record-breaking St Clare golf day!
Takeley housebuilder and long-term partner of St Clare Hospice, Weston Homes Plc, has raised a record-breaking £110,000 for St Clare at their 23rd annual golf day!
The Uttlesford-based developer has been running this vital fundraising event in aid of the hospice for the past two decades and in that time has generated well over a million pounds for us.
On Friday 1 September, golfers enjoyed a welcome breakfast before hitting the greens at Stoke by Nayland Golf and Spa Hotel, followed by an evening of fine-dining and entertainment. The event finished with a charity auction in which guests bid generously for top prizes – including holidays and golf breaks.
Weston Homes Chairman, Bob Weston, said:
“Both myself and the whole team at Weston Homes are proud to host this fun annual event for an exceptional cause. We have a long-standing and mutually beneficial partnership with the hospice, dating back two decades. The work of St Clare is immeasurably important across Essex and we believe it is imperative, as a local business who operates in the same community as the hospice, to lend our support so that their care can continue.”
St Clare Chief Executive, Sarah Thompson, said:
“We are indebted to Weston Homes for their commitment to our partnership and I am so delighted by the continued success of this incredible golfing fundraiser for St Clare. It is incredible that their financial contribution over the years now amounts to more than a million pounds – not to mention the generous support they gave in building our new office facility last year. It is only with the dedicated help of loyal partners like Weston Homes that we are able to sustain and grow our services to ensure we can continue to be there for local people, now and in the years ahead.”
