Gullands enjoy a day on the green

Gullands joined NatWest and around 80 other golfers on 9th June at the Weald of Kent Golf Club to raise over £5,000 for children’s hospice Demelza.

The Gullands team comprised David Brown with a handicap of 27, Barrie Jones with a handicap of 18, Martin Curd, from Birkby Construction Ltd, with a handicap of 23 and Tim Mitford-Slade, from Strutt and Parker, with a handicap of 28.

“Barrie played extremely well off an 18 and had a fantastic 47 stableford points,” said David Brown, head of construction.  “He would have been tied first, but unfortunately lost on countback. Nevertheless we had terrific day.”

After playing 18 holes on the beautifully maintained parkland course, teams were invited to enjoy dinner and prizes were awarded to the winner, the longest drive and the nearest to the pin.

The money raised will be donated to Demezla, who provides hospice care for children with life-limiting illnesses and their families across Kent, East Sussex and South East London.  Based near Sittingbourne the charity offers day care, palliative care, short-term planned or emergency breaks for families and end of life care along with advice, practical assistance and bereavement counseling and support.
