The Macmillan Jersey Charity golf day, sponsored by Advisa Wealth, was held at La Moye Golf course last month raising over £27,000 for the local charity.
The weather proved kind to the 27 teams of 4 who took part in one of the biggest fields La Moye has seen in recent years. Perfect conditions meant that the scoring was high.
The event was won by Ben Haymer and his team from Santander who graciously requested to auction off their prizes in order to donate the funds to their friend’s fundraising efforts also for Macmillan Jersey as a result of his brother losing his fight to Cancer last year.
Advisa Director Trevor Griggs said “The Macmillan Charity Golf day was another fantastic success in raising much-needed funds for the charity. It has become an annual event and is the flagship of Advisa’s ‘Supporting the community’ programme.”
Macmillan Chief Executive, Steph Gibaut said “We feel extremely privileged to have the support of Advisa Wealth, who for the second year running has hosted the Macmillan Jersey Charity golf day. Like many charities, the last 2 years have been financially challenging which has seen our vital fundraising events come to a standstill.”
“In 2021, our cancer team of dedicated professionals provided over 3,000 support sessions and without the support of companies like Advisa Wealth, this simply wouldn’t be possible.”
“Sadly, we know that one in two people will hear the words ‘you have cancer’ so ensuring our services continue to operate is crucial. Receiving over £27,000 from this event is incredible and we truly couldn’t be more grateful”, she added. “I would like to thank the team at La Moye Golf club for staging the event and all the players who participated and contributed towards such an unbelievable sum of money for the charity.”
The Advisa Wealth team is already planning the 2023 Macmillan Jersey Charity Golf day, building on this year’s hugely successful outcome and is asking for any interested participants to contact Trevor Griggs or Paul Frankland at Advisa Wealth.
