A hole in one to support the ‘Best for Ben’ appeal

An employee of LB Bentley, Ben Wernham, sustained life changing injuries after a swimming pool accident whilst on holiday in 2016. LBB have been supporting the ‘Best for Ben’ appeal.

A local golfing community worked together with local businesses to help raise funds for the ‘Best for Ben’ appeal. On Friday 23rd June ‘Minchinhampton Golf Club’ (MGC) were proud to host The ‘Best for Ben’ Golf Tournament.

The event, that was open to both members and non-members, was a great success with 112 players participating with a range of abilities and experience. In total, the event raised a whopping £4,000 towards the appeal. The raffle alone raised £1,360, with 43 prizes that were donated from local businesses and individuals who were extremely generous. Additional donations were made by local businesses sponsoring the event.

Those players who took part thoroughly enjoyed the day whilst raising money to support a good cause. One participant commented

It was a fun day of golf with friends and what a great way to raise money for the ‘Best for Ben’ appeal.”

Ben’s partner Ella Constable has received a cheque from the team who worked hard to organise the event.
