2018 marked the third year of the Qualco UK charity golf tournament, which raised £1,200 for charities Princess Alice Hospice and the Campaign against Living Miserably (CALM).

The tournament took place at the historic St. George’s Hill Golf Club on Friday 23 November in Surrey. The course is rated 32nd in the 2018 Golf Digest ‘World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses’ ranking. It provided a beautiful backdrop and challenging task for industry professionals from First Utility, Fiinu, Founded, Moriarty Law, Peacock D&B, Sigma, and Water Plus.

The prizes were hotly contested. Andy Hughes won closest to the pin, Richard Mabbott achieved the longest drive, and Martin Ewins secured the individual stableford. Moriarty Law took home the Qualco Cup for best team.

Claire Woodward, Princes Alice Hospice Senior Partnership Fundraiser, said: “Once again Qualco’s generosity and good spirit have benefited the Hospice – for which we are extremely grateful. This gives a welcome boost to our funds and enables us to look after those who need palliative and end of life care – services which are provided free, thanks to donations like this.”

Qualco’s Head of Sales, Jan-Michael Lacey commented: “We always look forward to our annual charity golf tournament; it is an excellent opportunity to meet up with industry contacts on such a beautiful course whilst raising money for our chosen charities. It was a competitive year, so well done to the winners. We look forward to the next one!”
