Golf challenge

RegaLead goes a fairway towards charity target

It was a humid day last July when RegaLead staff, customers, suppliers and friends – including MyTradeTV’s own Lee Clarke – grabbed their golf gear and set off to complete 54 holes of golf across three countries, all in the name of charity. Far from being a leisurely round of golf, the team had to complete this challenge and be back in Manchester in time for last orders the same day. Complete it they did, however, and now they’re doing it again, this time across five countries.

Taking place on the 15th and 16th May, the Five Countries Golf Challenge does exactly what it says on the tin. Golfers – known henceforth as Team Marvellous – will travel across England, North Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of to complete 81 holes in just 36 hours, to raise money for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity (RDMCC).

 

Guy Hubble, Joint Managing Director at RegaLead explains: “We’re all looking forward to the Five Countries Golf challenge, where we’ll start day one with 18 holes in North Wales. Then we’ll make our way to Penrith for another 18, finishing with a round of nine in Scotland, where we’ll aim to get an early night in preparation for another busy day. We’ll catch the first ferry over to the emerald isle the next morning to play 18 holes in Northern Ireland, travelling into the Republic of Ireland for the final 18.

 

“Mark Twain once called golf ‘a good walk ruined’ but I think it’s fair to say we will have a very good walk, covering a minimum of 18 miles over the two days. In fact, judging by some of these players last year, it’ll probably be considerably longer! Of course, it’s all for a fantastic cause. RDMCC raises money to support children with rare illnesses and their families to make sure they can still enjoy a good quality of life. We really appreciate everybody taking the time to join us in the challenge and hope that our non-golfing friends will be just as generous with their donations.”
