Read’s swing meant money for air ambulance

Posted on January 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Some of the stars of the long-term care sector came together as competitors at a recent Pinders golf day, played at The Hertfordshire.

Ably chaperoned by director Jon Chapman, this year’s event incorporated a concept to give even the worst player a sense of achievement.

Pinders pledged £1 to charity for every Stableford point scored on the day and so presented a cheque for £1,155 to overall winner John Read of Chandler & Co. John has decided to donate this to the Surrey Air Ambulance Appeal, for which fellow director Jerry Webb has already raised more than £50,000 this year.
