Glorious sunshine, the chance to win a Kia in a hole-in-one competition and massages from Vanity Salons proved highlights in the first annual Medina Foodservice Charity Golf Day, raising money for Beaulieu Respite and the Isle of Wight Youth Trust as over 60 competitors fought it out at Freshwater Bay Golf Club.
A raffle and auction with prizes from Swansea City Football Club, The Hambrough, Bestival and Ecco to name a few helped to raise over £1,800 for the two Island charities.
Steve Ross, Managing Director of Medina Foodservice, said “A great day was had by all and it was a fantastic opportunity to raise a considerable sum of money for two well deserving local charities – Medina would like to thank all of the sponsors from the Island who helped us make the day such a great event”.
Tony Wake, representing Beaulieu Respite, said “What a wonderful event for its first year. Our heartfelt thanks to Steve and his brilliant team at Medina Foodservice. We would also like thank everyone who attended or donated prizes for the raffle or auction. Rest assured this money will be well spent making our special children and young people’s lives that bit nicer”.
Aimee Steward, on behalf of the Isle of Wight Youth Trust, said “Thanks so much to Steve and the team at Medina Foodservice, as well as all the other businesses involved – this really is a fantastic amount of money. The Isle of Wight Youth Trust is reliant on the generosity of local businesses like Medina to continue to provide our invaluable service to the children and young people of the Isle of Wight – thank you!”.
