The winning team on the day was Ryan Maidment and friends, 2nd Place was Charlie Humphries and the Pavilion Heating Team and coming in 3rd place was the Travers Beaton and ITDS Team. Winning individual on the day was Will Beer from the Servo Private Wealth team with an impressive 92 points. Other winners included Ian Poysden, who won Nearest the Pin and Tom Watson with Longest Drive.

Starr Trust Ambassador Jason Burrill presented trophies to the winners, before players enjoyed a delicious BBQ dinner served on the sunny terrace overlooking the Championship waterfall course.

Simon Pugh of Headline Sponsor, Handelsbanken said: “Well what can I say, another fantastic charity golf day with The Starr Trust at the beautiful Mannings Heath Golf Club. Thank you to all the members of the Starr Trust team and the staff at the club who not only booked the lovely sunshine but also made sure everybody was fed and watered throughout the day finishing off again with a wonderful BBQ. Brilliant event with lovely people, had a great time playing with my team, thank you Andy, Steve (Tuffers) & Gary. Already looking forward to 6th of June 2024!

Fundraising Manager, Tracey Starr said: “What a lovely bunch of people we were lucky enough to spend a fun afternoon with for another fully sold out Golf Day this year! We had some regular teams taking part as well as some new business supporters joining us, all of whom helped make the day a great success with a fantastic amount raised to help some of the young people who need our support. Huge thanks to all teams participating and we hope to see you again next year!

Big thanks go out to all players who attended and our event sponsors including; Handelsbanken, Gardner & Scardifield, Servo Private Wealth, EMC Management Consultants, Accredo Secured Business Finance, Carpenter Box, Pavilion Heating, Webtrends Optimize and 360 Degree Brewing Co.

Without this kind support, fundraising events like these would not be possible. ALL funds raised will go out to young people who need our support as running costs for the charity are covered by Seico Group.
