Accountants get in the swing for charity golf day

By Anita Jaynes on 11 July, 2015

A golf day organised by Swindon accountants has boosted a town youth charity by more than £1,000.

The event, hosted by Banks BHG and held at Wrag Barn Golf Club, was in aid of the company’s charity of the year Inner Flame, which delivers The Prince’s Trust Team Programme in Swindon to help young people into employment.

More than 35 keen golfers from among Banks BHG clients, colleagues and associates teed off at the event, which saw franchise consultant Andy Barnett win the best overall individual prize. An auction of a round of golf, donated by Wrag Barn, also added to the £1,015 total.

Paul Gosling, Banks BHG’s head of tax who organised the event, said: “The day and the weather were really good, and everybody enjoyed themselves. Wrag Barn were very supportive and we’re delighted to have boosted our yearly fundraising.”

David Wreathall, founder of Inner Flame, said: “What an excellent day and many thanks to the directors and clients of Banks BHG. We are very grateful to Paul and his colleagues for choosing us as their charity of the year. As a bonus, the weather and golf were great, and thanks to Wrag Barn too.”
