    Cavendish Professionals 2022 Charity Golf Day

    As we look back on our first charity golf day, held on Friday 20th May at Ealing Golf Club, we want to thank all of those who attended and made it such a great success.

    Our aim was to raise money and awareness for two great charities working hard to make a difference, Construction Sport and The Lighthouse Club. Both charities strive to create a positive environment for the industry and make construction a safer place for all workers and Cavendish Professionals wanted to be part of this positive change.

    The day started off with registration, counting up team members, handicaps and tee-off times. After a lovely breakfast, the teams were ready for the 18 holes.

    Throughout the day, we held two competitions at different holes on the course. The longest drive competition at the 7th hole and Beat the Pro at the 18th hole that was kindly hosted by Construction Sport. Phil Akers, a trustee at Construction Sport and former pro golfer, challenged players to see who could get the closest shot to the hole and of course, raise more money for the charities.

    As part of our new Content strategy, we were joined by our Videographers at KO Visuals to capture the days activities, players and important conversations with both Steve Kerslake at Construction Sport and Bill Hill at The Lighthouse Club.
