Kestrel team takes up golf to help raise £10,000 for charity

  • 28 Jun 2018

May this year saw PVC-UE and UPVC building product supplier, Kestrel, raise £10,000 at a charity golf tournament.

Held on 4th May, also known as ‘Star Wars day’, at Sprowston Manor Marriott Hotel and Country Club in Norwich, the event saw almost 200 golfers attend to raise money for the three children’s charities.

The event was organised by Norfolk-based DMD Installations who donated the proceeds to Great Ormond Street Hospital, children’s charity The Stanley McLean Trust and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice.

Steve Bowden, national sales manager of DMD Installations, which specialises in large commercial roofline projects, commented: “We are very grateful to Kestrel for supporting us again this year in what was undoubtedly the biggest and most successful tournament so far.”

Kestrel sales and marketing director Owen Thorogood concluded: “As a business we are always keen to support charitable organisations and were delighted to put a team together for the tournament. Our golf clubs may have been less effective as a lightsaber, but we battled it out well on the course and thought the entire day really was out of this world!”
