RAK’s charity golf day raises £60,000+

August 2021

RAK Ceramics held its annual Charity Golf Day on Thursday 22nd July, raising an incredible £60,000 for Rowans Hospice.

Colleagues and customers gathered to put their putting skills to the test, dressing in their finest golfing outfits and forming teams for a day of healthy competition, camaraderie and fun.  An impressive 21 teams took part in the event, held at the Kings Course of the Warwickshire Golf Club, where they gathered for 18 holes of golfing competition.

Now in its second year, the RAK Ceramics Golf Day was held in memory of Alan Abrams, a well-known and much-loved character in the bathroom industry who passed away on his birthday in April 2019.  Rowans Hospice provides specialist care and support to patients with life-limiting illnesses, their families and carers, throughout Portsmouth and South East Hampshire.

Radiator Valves UK took the top spot as the Overall Team Winners at this year’s event, with Roxor’s Adam Cunningham taking Best Individual Overall Winner. There were prizes also for Nearest to Pin and Longest Drive Competitions, as well as the Team that Tried the Hardest and the Best Dressed.

There were other competitions throughout the day including a Tile Wall Raffle Competition, Beat the Pro and Putter and Drivers Prize Draw. The day’s golfing action was followed by a three-course dinner and a charity auction.

“As well as being a lot fun and an opportunity to network, the event, organised by Trident Marketing raised a huge amount of money for Rowans Hospice, who due to the pandemic are in desperate need of support so this money will make a huge difference,” commented RAK Ceramics Sales and Marketing Director, Ben Bryden.

“Congratulations to all our winners and thank you to everyone who attended, including the event’s Platinum Sponsors Roxor and Gold Sponsors Firenza and Lucabella, plus everyone who sponsored a hole.”
