“Putting” safety first with a fundraiser for RoSPA

When it came to organising our annual charity golf day, we decided to choose RoSPA as our nominated charity, because we had worked together on various projects over the last 12 months.

The APIL team prepare to tee off at their RoSPA fundraiser.

Taking place on the famous Ryder Cup Course at the Celtic Manor Resort, we, the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) were pleased to host a fully subscribed charity golf day with 22 teams battling to win one of the 17 trophies on offer.

After a shotgun start, the golfers took to the Twenty Ten Course and despite the treacherous winds (and the worse golfing weather ever recorded at an APIL charity golf day), the golfers slowly returned to the members’ lounge, after an enjoyable, yet pretty tiring day out!

The golfers got their breath back over fish and chips and a drink from the bar, just in time for the presentation of prizes, where players gave a warm welcome to RoSPA’s occupational safety adviser Roger Bibbings MBE, who said a few words on behalf of the charity.  APIL’s business support manager Ted Parsons presented the trophies, where we saw the Search Legal team wipe the floor, winning the team Stableford trophy and the individual Stableford trophies for first and second place!  Other winners included Argent Rehabilitation, Compass Law, the Wyvern Partnership and ARAG.

APIL is thrilled to be able to donate the sum of £1,500 to RoSPA, with funding from the golf day sponsors Compass Law. In addition to this, the photographer from the day Phil Hynds is also kindly donating 20 per cent of his takings.

"Putting" into the lead at the Charity Golf Day were the Search Legal team, from left, Andrew Haldenby, Andrew Twambley, Ian Cherry and Alan Nesbit.
