Golfers raise £10,000 for Island charity

More than 70 golfers teed off at La Moye in August to raise £10,000 for Autism Jersey.

The annual event was sponsored by telecoms provider JT which entered three teams. They competed against teams from HSBC, Appleby, Bedell Cristin, PwC, Ashburton, Natwest Offshore, Jersey Choice, Black Rock, 1st Recruitment, RBSI, Black Rock, Rathbones, Quilter Cheviot, Collas Crill and Volaw.

The Chairman of Autism Jersey, Nick Winsor, said: “The 2014 golf day was a real success all round, and I’d like to thank JT for sponsoring the day and La Moye Golf Club for hosting us and providing an excellent post match lunch. Throughout the year we organise a number of fundraising events like this, which also serve as an excellent way for us to engage with the wider community to help raise awareness of autism and the work that Autism Jersey does within the Island.”

The winning team was lead by JT’s director of HR Richard Summerfield and included guests; Nigel Simpson of Standard Bank; Guy Pipon of Jersey Heritage and JT Lab’s Head of Innovation and Strategy, Mark Stuchfield.

Funds were raised through the entry fee, hole sponsorship, a raffle and an auction and will be set towards the charity’s new purpose-built centre in St Saviour.

The charity needs needs to raise at least £1.5 million for the centre which is a joint effort with the States.
