Wybone Celebrates 50th Anniversary with Annual Golf Day

June 11, 2019

The Wybone Annual Golf Day took place last week once again at Hickleton Golf Club, gathering customers, staff and suppliers to raise money for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

We were lucky with the weather and a great day was had by all, even if some returned a little red faced! 52 players took on the 18 hole challenge, each toting their own goody bags, filled with drinks, snacks, a special edition Wybone golf ball and Wybone chocolate bar with the potential to hold a golden ticket. Our goody bags were kindly sponsored by our friends at Kingfisher Direct, who were in attendance as part of Group 9.

Our very kind suppliers, partners and customers donated generously to give us a great selection of prizes for the winners (and losers) of the day. As it was such a success last year, we also did a competition for the winner of the closest to the hole on the 5th, with all proceeds going to Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The lucky winner of the Wybone Golden Ticket received an Acer Aspire Windows Notebook, donated by Lee Dowson from Amethyst Systems.

Our top raffle prize was a voucher, won by Paul Curroto from Leeds Teaching Hospitals and other prizes included an engraved bottle of whisky from DPD Local and a Motocaddy Bag from Steel Co.

The overall winners for the day were made up of 4 members; lead by our Southern Sales Manager, Mark Hollinsworth, with Sean and Nick from Havant Borough Council, along with Alpha Waste’s Managing Director, Peter. Our very own organiser, Alan was the winner with the most points, claiming the Motocaddy Bag and bottle of Whisky.

Many kind winners donated their prize money back to the cause, giving us a final total of £440 raised for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

We’ve received endless thanks and messages of gratuity from customers and suppliers, but we think we’re the lucky ones, as without you all, we would not be here! You can see the full list of prizes, sponsors and winners below. Now let’s get to planning for next year…
