The origins of the Charity Golf Day go back to 2005 with the aim of raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support – a charity with an ambition to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to inspire millions of others to do the same.
At the time, Computacenter teamed up with Andrew Stevens of CNet Training and soon gathered enough interest to kick off what has since become an annual event in the network infrastructure and data centre industry calendar.
The 2023 Inside_Networks Charity Golf Day, which was sponsored by CNet Training, COMTEC, Excel Networking, Lynchpin Media, LMG and Mills saw 33 teams and over 120 industry professionals enjoy a great day’s golfing, which was followed by a three-course dinner, prize giving and a charity raffle – raising around £11,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support in the process.
This raised the total figure since the first event to just under £100,000.
Now firmly established as one of the most popular events in the network infrastructure industry calendar the Inside_Networks Charity Golf Day event is a great day out which allows us to focus our competitive streaks in a different direction, while raising money for a worthwhile cause.
Plans are already underway for the next Inside_Networks Charity Golf Day, which will take place on May 22nd 2024. Places are sure to be snapped up quickly, so those interested in taking part are advised to register early, as places are limited.
It was a pleasure to attend another Golf Day at Hanbury Manor and to assist where possible in helping to make the day a success.
As always, it was excellently organised and very well supported by the IT network of companies. It was good to see a few familiar faces from previous years and summer sunshine arrived in Hertfordshire at last!
The generosity evidenced from all in attendance with their willingness to buy raffle tickets and later on the course with Ady’s challenge on the 11th tee was exceptional together with the raffle prizes donated and the auction bids at the dinner.
The figure raised on the day for Macmillan Cancer Support of around £11,000 is immense and will make a major impact on what the Charity can do for people living with cancer to make their lives as normal as possible and to assist them and their families emotionally, financially and practically in helping them cope with their illness.
Thank you most sincerely, both personally, and on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support for not only this year’s magnificent contribution, but also for what you have done over the last 18 years for us.
I look forward to May 2024 for the next event.
Thank you Mark, Andrew, Rob and all involved in making the day a success and to your many generous clients.
