120 golfers gathered at the Mere Golf Resort and Spa on Thursday 8th July 2021 for our golf day, the Swanky Swing.
Guests of the Swanky Swing Golf Day sponsored by TorFX, Hammond McNulty Accountants, Porsche Centre Wilmslow, Belvoir and many more, were welcomed by Greatest Hits Radio presenter, Darren Proctor, and were kept hydrated throughout the day as the TorFX drinks buggy delivered the beer of choice for the day, Bach95, to all the golfers around the course.
As Official Partners of Sale Sharks Rugby Club, we were delighted to welcome Sharks players Jono Ross, Will Cliff, Simon Hammersley and Josh Beaumont as our guests for the day, along with Sale Sharks Commercial Director and former England International, Mark Cueto, non-executive Director and former England International, Jason Robinson, and owner of the club, Simon Orange.
During the evening, guests were kept entertained by Manchester based singer, Alexander Stewart, followed by a live DJ set by Darren Proctor, whilst also checking out the Silent Auction put on by BidAid, the online auction site co-founded by Olympic silver medalist and double world champion athlete, Jamie Baulch.
Andrew Chatterton, Managing Director of Franklyn Financial Management commented “After the incredibly tough 18 months so many charities have had due to the pandemic, we were delighted to get back to our usual fundraising efforts and make up for lost time. It was great to have so many clients, business partners and friends of FFM with us for the day and have so much support from them along with all our fabulous sponsors. We can’t wait for the next event!”
The £54,954 raised at the Swanky Swing golf day takes the running total raised by our charity events for the St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation over the years to just over £1 million.
We are hoping to continue our fundraising efforts at our Winter Waltz Gala Dinner event, taking place on Friday 26th November at The Mere Golf Resort and Spa, with the theme for this year being ‘The Fairy-tale of New York’. The Winter Waltz promises to be an evening of top-class entertainment and more details on how you can buy your table or sponsorship opportunities can be found online at www.ffmsummerswing.co.uk.
