Golfers got into the swing of things for charity and raised £240 for Marie Curie Cancer Care at the Focus Consultants’ annual charity golf day.

The event, which took place at Belton Park Golf Club, Grantham, attracted players from across the East Midlands.

It was organised by Trevor Newton, partner at Focus Consultants’ Lincolnshire offices, and senior building surveyor Craig Gould, who works in Focus Consultants’ head office at Phoenix Business Park, Nottingham.

Twenty four clients, associates and staff took part in the charity day, with Neal Rothwell, head of asset and facilities management at Lincolnshire Police taking the honours in first place. Second was Simon Elkington, from Harvest Associates, and third was Craig Gould, from Focus Consultants.

Prize for the longest drive went to Trevor Newton, from Focus Consultants, with Mark Jones, of Larkfleet, taking the honours for nearest pin. Neal Rothwell also scooped the prize for best under 14 handicap, and hacker of the day went to Andrew Sharp, building surveyor and CDM co-ordinator at Focus Consultants.

Len Hartley and Lee Towsey, from NHS Lincolnshire, and Steve Singleton, from The Manor Academy, Mansfield Woodhouse, took the team prize.

“We were very pleased that a number of our clients in the East Midlands could join us on our annual charity golf day, and delighted to have raised £240 for Marie Curie Cancer Care,” said Trevor Newton.

Focus Consultants, which has offices in Nottingham, Leicester, Boston and Aubourn in Lincolnshire, and in Holborn, London, specialises in funding, research and economic development, project and programme management, construction and property services and energy carbon sustainability services. It works on private and public projects across the UK.

The company decided to support Marie Curie Cancer Care at this year’s golf event after the charity helped a relative of one of its employees before he died last year.
