The Starr Trust was delighted with the success of its sixth annual Golf Day, held on March 15 at the Surrey Hills Golf Course in Albourne and which raised £3,370 to help young people that live within the BN postcode.

Ten teams of golfers from local businesses came together to enjoy a well-earned day out and a great chance to network. The sun shone all day and with temperatures reaching a balmy 17 degrees.

The day was organised by local Hove hairdresser Kevin of DNK Hair with awards being given out, bids made on fantastic auction prizes and a delicious carvery dinner to finish off.

The winning team was Pavilion Plumbing with Nick Collins of Bluetone Communications winning individual 1st prize and Shane Brown of the Lighthouse Group winning ‘Nearest the Pin’.

Starr Trust event organiser Tracey said: “As ever we are incredibly grateful for everyone’s support and delighted at how much we managed to raise. Even those businesses that were unable to play helped us by sponsoring a hole, so some great publicity for all concerned”.
