RBC Brewin Dolphin wins as charity event reaches halfway of £100,000 target

The annual 3 Bunkers Golf Challenge has reached the halfway mark of its £100,000 target having raised £9,000 so far from the 2024 event which was won by a team from the Nottingham office of wealth managers RBC Brewin Dolphin who scored the most points and had the least deductions for going in a bunker.

The 2024 event took place on Friday 24 May and saw teams from Actons Solicitors, Fiscal Engineers, MAF Finance Group, Shakespeare Martineau Solicitors, RBC Brewin Dolphin and Simple Marketing Consultancy play Morley Hayes Golf Club, Charnwood Forest Golf Club and The Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club, reaching three corners of the East Midlands counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire & Leicestershire, covering just over 70 miles within 10 hours.

Commenting, event organiser Elliot Cook said: “Whilst we were privileged to have had an enjoyable day playing golf, we were also very conscious of that fact we are doing this to raise money to help find a cure for cancer and to help young people escape abuse and neglect.

“I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who took part, to the golf courses for donating the tees, and to everyone who has donated so far and in the future as we press on to achieve our £100,000 target.”

The 3 Bunkers challenge was established in 2020 by Elliot & Bev Cook from Simple Marketing Consultancy.

All money raised will be donated to the charity Big C Little C which was founded in 2019 by business entrepreneurs, Andrew Springhall from Breedon Electrical Fire & Security and Colin Shaw, former Chairman of PKF Cooper Parry, who joined forces to create a charity that would encourage East Midlands businesses to organise events to raise money for Cancer Research, the NSPCC and other children related charities.

The organisers also thanked Econix Bio Bin, Ruddington Grange, Oulton Hall, Nuneaton, and The Nottinghamshire golf clubs for donating prizes for the auction.
